Hydreco Hydraulics Ltd bolsters its presence within the UK market

12 January, 2021

Hydreco Hydraulics Ltd in Poole, Dorset, a wholly owned UK subsidiary of Duplomatic Motion Solutions based in Italy, has put in place a robust company growth strategy focused on gaining an even larger market share within a number of target sectors within the UK and Ireland.

Key appointment

Part of this new sales momentum revolves around the recent appointment of Rob Buchanan, formerly GM of Argo Hytos, as the company’s new sales director. Buchanan and his sales team based in Poole will manage the company’s existing key account customers within the mobile market, as well as look to expand the business in the direction control valves sector; i.e. those within the cetop, bankable, manifold and HIC markets utilising Duplomatics’ extensive range. Also, David Brown and Hamworthy are two well-known and respected brands that fall under the Hydreco Hydraulics umbrella.


Additionally, Buchanan is tasked with further developing Hydreco Hydraulics Ltd’s relationship with existing and prospective distributor partners and systems integrators. He comments: “Drawing on our own solutions and sales expertise, as well as the knowhow and experience of our parent company Duplomatic, we are now heavily focused on expanding our key target markets. We are also concentrating on the further development of our distribution and systems integration business. Because of the broad range of solutions and skillsets we can offer, we are able to focus on both end-users and OEMs within the industrial, mobile, distribution and defence sectors.”
