• Paul Taylor, formerly Works Manager now becomes Director.

The business, which supplies hydraulic tube, fittings, compression fittings, hydraulic hose fittings and assemblies and pipeline materials, supplies a wide range of industries both here in the UK and around the world.

Between Alan, Don & Paul they have over 60 years combined service for HOS, working alongside existing Director, John Joyce, it is hoped the new positions will only strengthen their established customer base, both nationally and internationally.

The company recently celebrated three decades on Wearside after establishing itself in Sunderland in 1985. Recent investment, including new machinery for the workshop and the employing of a hose technician and apprentice has meant the company continues to grow with recent contract wins including a six figure order for 15,000 psi high pressure valves, tubing, hose assemblies and related fittings.

Chairman Alan Wills commented, “I am delighted that Don & Paul have taken up their new roles, even with the challenging conditions within the oil & gas industry at the moment, due to investment within our offices and workshop over the last 5 years we have continued to grow and develop our customer base. Don & Paul, with their wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for the industry will continue to ensure the growth of HOS.”
