HYDAC – 52 national companies, one DNA

Founded in Saarland in 1963 as “Gesellschaft für Hydraulikzubehör” (Company for Hydraulics Accessories) and run as a family company, HYDAC has never stopped improving. HYDAC now has 52 national companies, roughly 500 trade and service partners, 14 product lines and more than 9,500 employees worldwide.

HYDAC’s expertise extends beyond the typical understanding of hydraulics, systems and fluid engineering. We are committed to providing all-inclusive solutions that span industrial sectors and are sustainable and above all customer-oriented. We are not theorists – with comprehensive understanding of the industry, we develop systems that will stand the test of time. For you and with you.

HYDAC – driving and experiencing innovation

Constantly facing new challenges, we have never stopped developing our portfolio. In Germany alone, more than 900 of our engineers in the areas Fluid and Engineering work with you to create energy-efficient, reliable and low-waste solutions. 90 new patent applications per year are testimony to our feel for innovation.

An international network, with local roots

We speak your language and are aware of the challenges on the ground. HYDAC provides a unique network of international and local specialists. This helps us to develop tailored solutions for and with our customers, adapted to suit your regional requirements.
