Hydratec’s return to operational services under strict COVID 19 guidelines.

As of Monday 11th May 2020, Hydratec will be returning to fully operational services from both our Yateley and Heywood facilities.

We continue to remain partly operational until 11th May, to support requests relating to the NHS and other of the UK’s front-line essential services for on-site support and for the dispatch of critical stock parts when required.

Key personnel can still be contacted directly via their mobile phones, (numbers provided to existing customers).

To protect our staff, we will be following the distancing and hygiene standards as recommended by the Government relating to Covid-19. Returning to work, repair and modernisation engineers will all be correctly equipped with face masks, gloves, visors and goggles and thoroughly briefed on COVID 19 distancing and safety procedures prior to visiting any work site.

Our Senior Managers will be prioritising all jobs and projects that were already in progress or due to start prior to the lockdown. We are happy to discuss timelines for any new jobs or projects and appreciate your understanding whilst we clear the backlog of work.

Technical support is available through the usual channels and by emailing sales@hydratec-lifts.co.uk we will do our utmost to respond as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.

Look ‘Smart’ with Hydratec’s modular modernisation product

For those of you who visited us at Liftex, you’d have been hard pressed not to notice our stand-out product. We took the popular lift industry trade show as an opportunity to launch our new low energy integrated hydraulic modernisation solution – the Hydratec Smart©.

hydraulic modular lift smart

Developed with equipment from industry-leading independent manufacturers Bucher and Lester Controls, with a 3 year warranty as standard, the Smart attracted a lot of interest and a number of serious enquiries. A particular talking point amongst visitors was the EN81-20 compliance, positioning the Smart as an easy to install, long-term solution as the implementation of the new standard approaches (2017).


Following the show, we’ve received an unprecedented number of orders for the Smart, with several coming from global manufacturers. To find out more and get on board with this intelligent solution, visit our Smart product page or contact the Hydratec team today.
