Smiths Industries, later renamed as Smiths Group Plc, withdrew from the hydraulics market in 2002 – leaving behind a customer base with no access to their former product range.
Other UK manufacturers stepped in to fill the space and satisfy the demand left behind – including the former Fluidlink Hydraulics. These companies designed and manufactured their own direct equivalents to the former Smiths Industries hydraulic power pack range.
As such, ‘Smiths Industries power packs’, are still employed in numerous mobile and industrial settings today – thanks to the production of these modern-day replacements. Applications include: specialist vehicles, tippers and trailers, mobility lifts, waste recycling machinery to name but a few.
