Factory move marks ‘very exciting period’ for Hydrasun Teesside
November 12, 2023
With a recently-opened facility already working with a number of customers, Hydrasun Teesside is moving forward with great momentum. Here, Neil Holmes, the company’s regional manager for the North of England, and David Whiles, the firm’s operations manager, discuss its Thornaby expansion and its importance within the region’s clean energy drive.
Hydrasun Teesside, a renowned provider of high-performance integrated product and service solutions to the petrochemical, marine, oil and gas and renewable energy sectors, has opened a new 20,000sq ft Teesside office and workshop.
The move forms part of Hydrasun Group’s ongoing investment and commitment to growth through delivering a wider capability and service provision for industry as it addresses the energy transition.
The expansion has also sparked a significant recruitment drive, with opportunities available for sales professionals, service engineers and technicians, graduate trainees and apprentices.
Since its inception more than 27 years ago, through the collective hard work, dedication and commitment of the Hydrasun Teesside team, the firm has built a reputation as a trusted supplier in the field of fluid transfer, power and control solutions.
A core offering in hose and instrumentation products has been complemented by a range of added value services, which include asset integrity assurance and reliability; field service system integration and installation of products; commissioning and site service solutions; hydraulic product and services; and technical training services.
Hydrasun has also established itself as the preferred and largest instrumentation product stockist and distributor for Parker Hannifin in the North East.
Its new office and workshop, based at Teesside Industrial Estate, in Thornaby, near Stockton, also sees Hydrasun offer customers convenient access to a range of off-the-shelf Parker and other manufacturer products, via its trade store.
Recent years have seen the company develop its hydrogen technology integrator and installation capabilities.
Since 2016, Hydrasun has delivered more than 30 projects in the hydrogen marketplace across the transport, industrial and power sectors, both in the UK and EU, and recently acquired Fuel Cell Systems.
Neil Holmes, Hydrasun regional manager for the North of England, said: “From our new premises, we will be able to offer both existing and new customers a wider range of products and services.
“We are now moving into a very exciting period of development and transition across industry, and we want to continue to support our existing customers and markets, but also embrace the challenge of net-zero across the North of England.”
David Whiles, Hydrasun operations manager, added: “This expansion allows us to better serve our customers with an extended range of products and services.
“We aim to attract and nurture talented individuals who are passionate about supporting the energy transition, and want to contribute to the company’s continued growth.”
