Since being acquired by County Durham-based Altec Engineering in 2015 Quick Hydraulics has already announced plans to expand into Teesside, and now its expansion into West Yorkshire will offer a hydraulic service and repair workshop to Yorkshire and the Humber.
Along with its sister company, precision engineering firm Sigma Technologies, Quick Hydraulics is to expand its operations, opening as part of Altec Engineering Group’s 21,000 sq ft workshop on Euroway Industrial Estate.
When fully operational, the new facility will create up to eight hydraulic engineering jobs on the site.
Quick Hydraulics, part of the Altec Engineering Group, was founded on Tyneside and has more than 35 years of experience, and an impressive client book including Nissan, Caterpillar, British Engineering, Siemens Energy, Hartlepool Power Station and SMD.
Andrew Esson, managing director of Quick Hydraulics, said: “Quick Hydraulics has been helping industry in the North East keep their hydraulic equipment running for more than 30 years, and training our customer’s engineers for more than 20 years.
“Altec Engineering’s investment in a new factory on the Euroway Industrial Estate near Bradford is a perfect opportunity for us to bring our high-quality hydraulic capability to Yorkshire and the Humber.”
Mike Goldsworthy, business development manager of Quick Hydraulics Bradford, said: “This is an exciting development for Quick Hydraulics, and an opportunity for businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber to access a world leading hydraulic service, repair and training capability.”
The Altec Engineering Group provides wide-ranging skills and services across a range of engineering disciplines including CNC precision machining, specialist coatings, design and build of special purpose equipment, electrical and mechanical design and tool-making.
