HYDAC is a  global firm that specialises in the manufacture and distribution of components and systems, as well as services related to hydraulics and fluid technologies. The HYDAC Fluid Engineering concept is designed for end-users to optimise and/or enhance the availability of machines and fluid technology plants and systems to lower their operating costs. The HYDAC Fluid Engineering concept focuses on optimisation through:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • System Availability
  • Process Reliability
  • Conservation of Resources

The partnership will initially focus on two main streams. Firstly, Turner Hydraulics will co-create with HYDAC to develop future innovations with the aim of reducing waste, optimising consumption, and reducing CO2 output. Secondly, as the first HYDAC UK partner for sustainability, Turner Hydraulics will trial, test, and implement the co-created innovations, thus benefitting from the long-standing expertise HYDAC provides across the world.

Turner Hydraulics will be the first in the UK to trial these latest technologies and measure the impact on the industry with regards to sustainability KPIs such as: CO2 output, litres of fluid saved, and reduction in consumable usage.

Ian Turner, Managing Director of Turner Hydraulics said: “In an era of rising demand, sustainability is one of the critical challenges to the future of our industry and a key strategic priority for Turners. We are delighted to partner with HYDAC who are renowned worldwide.

“This is a really important partnership that can generate long-term benefits at a global scale. It reflects the key pillars of our business transformation: we want to lead the way in making the industry aware of the possibilities available in terms of reducing wastage. The partnership with HYDAC will assist in creating a community around changing the industry, delivered by Turners.

 “We look forward to helping HYDAC in its ongoing efforts to shape the future of the hydraulics industry and inspire like-minded businesses around the UK.”

Steffan Grieve, HYDAC Service Division Manager said: “It’s great to have Turner Hydraulics on board for the new Fluid Engineering Partnership. HYDAC has been working with Turner Hydraulics for decades and the wealth of experience and knowledge we share helps us to provide an excellent service for our customers.

“It also helps us to promote sustainability and put it into practice. Improving efficiency, reducing waste, and increasing the reliability and availability of processes and systems is what we aim to do.

 “Not only is this helping our customers to realise higher profitability, but it is also helping to conserve resources, therefore helping to reduce the negative impact our industry can have on our global environment. It is a pleasure to work with such like-minded people, who share the same goals and who we can collaborate with, share successes and replicate.”
