Our Clients >>  Hydraulink Fluid Connectors
New Zealand
The company's roots go back over 50 years to 1945, when Messrs Burr & Douglas operated a general engineering shop in Newmarket, Auckland. The production engineering firm of G.M.Douglas Ltd expanded and began to specialise in hydraulic component manufacture, relocating to larger premises in 1955. The business was acquired by D.McL.Wallace Limited in 1976 and manufacturing of hydraulic components was expanded and the Hydraulink brand established.

Hydraulink Fluid Connectors Ltd was purchased by Lee Short and Noel Davies in 1989 and the company has been transformed into an international manufacturing and franchised distribution network with over ninety FAST·FIX Service Outlets and over 100 FAST·FIX Mobile Service Vans throughout New Zealand, and the Pacific Island countries.

Over the past 15 years, Hydraulink has been establishing major distribution bases in key Australian states. Hydraulink now has outlets in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Kalgoorlie. These outlets in turn have many sub distributors and direct accounts within their states, including a growing mobile van network.

The initiative to expand into Australia took a major step forward with the acquisition of Auspower Hydraulics on the 1st of August 2001. It was re-named to Hydraulink Australia and the acquisition gave Hydraulink a readymade Head office and National Distribution facility in Sydney, with experienced staff and a comprehensive range of stock. This acquisition is the base from which Hydraulink will continue the planned growth in Australia, and will enable them to respond overnight to Australian customer demands.
