Quick Hydraulics Targets Yorkshire in Expansion

Date Added 14/06/2016

Quick Hydraulics has revealed plans to set up an operation in Bradford. The venture will provide hydraulic services and repairs and create eight jobs. This move is further proof of the North Shields company’s resurgence after it was bought nine months ago by the Altec Engineering Group.

Earlier this year, Quick revealed their aim to create up to ten jobs by moving into Teesside to improve customer relationships and Managing Director Andrew Esson, said the Yorkshire endeavour will provide the same benefits.

Quick Hydraulics, which works with companies including Sunderland car maker Nissan, Hartlepool Power Station, and Caterpillar, known for manufacturing articulated trucks, will open as part of Altec Engineering Group company Sigma Technologies’s 21,000sq ft facility on Bradford’s Euroway Industrial Estate.

Andrew Esson said: “We have been helping industry in the North-East keep their hydraulic equipment running for more than 30 years, and training our customer’s engineers for more than 20 years. The investment in this new facility on the Euroway estate is a perfect opportunity for us to bring our high-quality hydraulic work to Yorkshire and the Humber.”
