Hydraquip opens first new branch for 2017 in Kettering

26 January, 2017

Following the acquisition of Ideal Hose with locations in Northampton & Rugby, Hydraquip Hose & Hydraulics has opened its first totally new branch of 2017 in Kettering.

Hydraquip Kettering, a brand new 2300 sq foot premises located next to Junction 9 of the A14, has convenient access links to the East Midlands with Corby, Kettering, Peterborough, Northampton & Leicester – all within a 40-minute drive and with excellent road connections to the A1, M1 & M6.

The Hydraquip Group’s growth saw the opening of five new branches in 2016 in Cannock, Manchester, Bradford, Dundee and Aberdeen. There are further plans in the pipeline for additional branches during 2017, helping to strengthen Hydraquip’s position as one of the UK’s largest independent providers of on-site hose repairs.

The team at Hydraquip Kettering is led by Steve Tomkins who joined Hydraquip in 2014, and Gary Peskett from Pirtek Northampton who joined in June 2016. Between Tomkins and Peskett they have over 20 years’ experience in the fluid power industry, complemented by a growing team of time-served hydraulic engineers in the area.

Tomkins commented: “To see the new branch become reality in such a short time period has been very exciting. Once customers see how well stocked the depot is and how easy it is to get here, why would they go elsewhere?”

With eight hydraulic hose engineers operating within the East Midlands, Hydraquip is continuing to grow its network of engineers to support the continued demands of its customers.

The new Kettering branch has a fully kitted hydraulic trade counter with experienced staff for an instant service to customers requiring a pattern hose assembly manufactured whilst they wait, with dedicated assembly production facilities which allow the branch to manufacture a one off hydraulic hose or high volumes of hydraulic hose assemblies.

The branch offers a comprehensive range of over 50,000+ fluid power components including pneumatic components, industrial hose and fittings, hydraulic hose and fittings, quick release couplings, hose reels, tube, valves and pumps, with comprehensive stocks of hydraulic and engine oils, including oil dispensing equipment. Many of these items are available over the counter or delivered to you within 24 hours.

Hydraquip reports that it is on track to have 200 hose repair vans nationally by 2020. During 2017 the company will continue to focus on its ongoing network expansion plans and is actively seeking experienced hydraulic hose engineers.
