The Specialist Buyers Guide for the UK Fluid and Air Industry


Hydraproducts and Star-Tec Merge


Hydraulic power pack manufacturer Hydraproducts have taken over the management of Cornwall based Star-Tec Fluid Power Ltd’s products and services in order to further expand their activity and expertise in the hydraulic componentry field.

Gloucester based Hydraproducts, who specialise in the production of a range of power pack units for industrial and mobile applications, have secured the portfolio, consultancy services and componentry stock of Star-Tec, who had been operational for over 40 years in the supply and distribution of hydraulic components and accessories. Simon Rogers, Star-Tec's Managing Director and previous owner of RHP Hydraulics, will continue to offer his consultancy services, bringing a wealth of knowledge of design and applications to Hydraproducts current operation.

Star-Tec were a primary UK distributor for OMT Hydraulic Components, who, based in Bergamo, Italy, are specialists in hydraulic components manufacturing and supply bellhousing, coupling and accumulators to the UK hydraulics market. Hydraproducts will retain Star-Tec’s expertise and connections in this area and with Simon’s help, will continue to supply and fit bespoke OMT bellhousing and coupling for hydraulic applications.

Ben Lee, Managing Director of Hydraproducts commented on the recent acquisition: “This is a great step forward for Hydraproducts and has the potential to increase our production and general reach, opening up new target sectors and business opportunities. 

Simon (Rogers) has a great knowledge of the hydraulics industry and as one of our long term clients I feel pleased he will continue to offer his expertise.”
