The Fluidforce People

All of us came together originally at Eastern Hydraulics and we have operated together for about 10 years. There is a comfortable atmosphere that has developed from working together over a prolonged period that enables us to have frank discussions on all manner of subjects.
Whether it be the outcome of a job, or the sounding out of ideas regarding a particular technical issue there is a willingness to assist each other that is not often found.
The people are what makes any company and we are proud of the result that our collective association has created.
