Quick Hydraulics to invest in Teesside

Tyneside engineering firm Quick Hydraulics is looking to open a new Teesside base after securing a number of contracts in the Tees Valley.

Quick has recently won a string of contracts with companies such as Wilton Engineering, Cleveland Potash and Caterpillar and is looking to create 10 jobs as part of the expansion.

The firm is looking to open a base of up to 10,000 sq ft with housing offices and a workshop, as they continue to diversify into new sectors beyond the oil and gas market.

Managing director Andrew Esson said: “We have longstanding Teesside relationships with a number of key customers, including Caterpillar, Cleveland Potash and Wilton Engineering, and it makes sense to use our local knowledge to build on these relationships. 

“We are actively reviewing potential locations on Portrack Lane, which would be an ideal base for our Teesside operations, but we retain an open mind regarding other possible locations."

Quick delivers hydraulic systems and solutions, which include hydraulic power units, hydraulic installations, industrial service and City & Guilds accredited hydraulic training.

The company has already expanded into the North East of Scotland in recent years, operating from its sales office in Aberdeen.
