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.

Celebrating 25 Years in Business!

In January of this year, Hydratec celebrated our 25th anniversary of assisting with the needs of lift companies requiring specialist skills and knowledge of hydraulic lifts.

Over the years, we have continued to assist lift companies across the UK with hydraulic repairs, upgrades, modernisations and are often involved in particularly challenging and technical hydraulic projects.

As straight talking hydraulic experts, we pride ourselves on our knowledge and often advise on technical specifications. We have been, and are, involved in many specialist projects which include, regenerative hydraulic systems, super capacitor drives, full modernisations, and complex lift jack replacements.

We work closely with manufacturers including, ALGI, Blain, Bucher, GMV and, Hydronic to provide the best solution.

In order to ensure that Hydratec engineers are constantly up-to-date with hydraulic technology, we have a dedicated training facility at our Yatelely premises. This facility includes a fully operational hydraulic lift, various valve set-ups and a classroom.


As many of our customers will know, in 2016, we launched Hydratec Smart, a modular hydraulic lift modernisation product which has been installed successfully in over 70 sites since its introduction.

Today, as a result of ongoing requests from customers, Hydratec is now providing a hydraulic full turnkey replacement or new installation service, including cars, shaft equipment controllers and aesthetics. Find out more about our hydraulic lift modernisation solutions here.
