Together we are Hydraulics Online!
We believe that sourcing hydraulic equipment and solutions should be quick, easy and customer-led. Our mission is simple: give personal service, best technical advice and unrivalled choice. Every time.
Hydraulics Online was founded in 2004 by husband-and-wife team, Mark and Helen Tonks; both shared the vision of creating a specialist, independent and customer-led company that could offer an alternative to traditional, product-led industry players.
Today, Hydraulics Online has grown to become an award-winning provider – sourcing products and solutions from over 80 hydraulic brands. We offer unrivalled choice in pricing and delivery, and enable collaborative innovation, continuous improvement and customer service excellence.
Customers in 130 countries and 20 sectors worldwide harness our knowledge and trust our technical expertise. In February 2019, the UK Department for International Trade recognised our global footprint and achievements by accrediting Hydraulics Online with its ‘Export Champion‘ status.
Highly committed employees and happy customers are the bedrock of our business. Our success is built on quality and technical know-how and the fact that we are 100% independent. We have no supplier sales targets and can, therefore, always provide the optimal solution for our customers – whether here in the UK, or in far-flung destinations around the world. Great service and knowledge have no limits.
We’re driven by continuous improvement; always striving to the best that we can be and ensuring that our clients can reach their own potential too. In 2014 we achieved ISO 9001 Quality Management accreditation through the British Standards Institution – recognised as a world authority on management systems and accredited themselves through UKAS.
So relax, knowing that – for a whole host of reasons – your brand is in safe hands.
We're a hydraulics 'hub', offering thousands of possibilities...
Our integrated partnership with 140 suppliers provide us with choice and flexibility in terms of pricing and lead-time. We pass these benefits on to our customers.
