Creating value since 1963

Customer orientation

Our customers are our driving force. They spur us on to keep on developing ourselves even further. For this reason, they are at the centre of all the decisions we make. In our collaborations, we make a point of communicating with our customers as partners and being transparent.


Hungry for knowledge, future-oriented and forward-looking: HYDAC is always at the cutting edge and is now represented worldwide in more than 14 product lines. We enjoy tackling new challenges, always well-equipped with our experience from the past.


We keep moving. Like our products, which we constantly adapt to suit the latest requirements and challenges, we also transform ourselves all the time. With our view fixed on the future, and our knowledge of the past, we respond to our environment flexibly.


For over 50 years, we have been a development partner for our customers. We use extensive tests and simulations to develop reliable technologies that are perfectly tailored to suit your requirements. This is how we create products and services that fulfil the highest safety standards and quality requirements.


From a Saarland family company to an international company group – this takes a great deal of courage. The courage to question the status quo, think outside the box and create something new. After all, the only way to stay at the cutting edge is to risk exploring unconventional paths.

Our entrepreneurial spirit spurs us on to find the most efficient and economically viable solution for you: because your success is our success. Together with you, we tackle the requirements of the market – always making sure that our products represent an attractive long-term investment for you.

Business code


Being a globally active group of companies, we see it as a matter of course to act according to the same basic principles on the market all over the world with responsibility towards the environment and society. For this reason we are certified, with re-certifications performed at regular intervals.

The business code below lays down minimum requirements on this basis, which can be supplemented to suit national needs.

  1. Relevant existing laws and other national and international regulations form the natural fundamentals for our action.
  2. We take account of the relevant social, cultural and political boundary conditions.
  3. For us, human dignity rules out any kind of discrimination, force or harassment. It also means that workers should be free to join associations and to exercise this right within the framework of applicable legal provisions.
  4. The applicable regulations with regard to protection of minors, labour protection and health protection are an imperative and postulation for us to put these human rights into practice.
  5. Confidentiality is a central prerequisite for fair and partnership-based cooperation. This includes respect for the privacy of each individual, including their personal data.
  6. We stand by the principles of a free market economy and hence by open and fair competition. We neither engage in nor tolerate any form of corruption or other improper influence over others’ freedom to make decisions.
  7. We develop and produce safe and reliable quality products with a view to efficient and sustainable future viability.
  8. In compliance with national and international environmental standards, we avoid adverse impact on the environment, observe requirements regarding the origin of raw materials and use resources responsibly and efficiently to contribute to sustainable development.
  9. We give employees and other interested third parties confidential access to a process for reporting potential breaches of these principles.
  10. Independently of any legal obligations, we expect our business partners to comply on their part with the fundamental guidelines of these principles and to actively ensure that their own business partners also comply with these guidelines and respect them.
    We will not cooperate with persons, companies or institutions, of whom or which we know that they do not observe minimum standards.

Supply chain due diligence

Declaration of Principles (LkSG)

As a globally operating company, it is a matter of course for us to act responsibly towards human rights and the environment with the same basic principles on the market worldwide. The Group’s management teams are therefore responsible for implementing these values. This ensures that human rights and environmental concerns are implemented in every area of the group of companies and along the supply chain. 

We also see it as our duty to continuously optimize our measures for sustainable action. 

For this purpose, we use our risk management system and analyze human rights and environmental processes and their risks. If we identify violations of these values, we take appropriate measures to counteract them. 

The risk analysis is carried out as an ongoing process during the financial year, monitored by the Human Rights Officer and evaluated annually by the Group’s management teams. Our complaints system can be used by both external parties and employees to draw attention to risks, in particular of a human rights and environmental nature. 

The values that govern the global group of companies are based on national and international standards and are also reflected in our Business Code.
