“Far from resting on our laurels, we have taken definitive action to drive Hydralectric forward in 2017. By investing in our marketing effort, hiring a new business development manager, combined with a real focus on developing both new territories and new product sees us look forward to the coming year with real enthusiasm and huge optimism. It would be fair to say that the business got a little bit comfortable over the last couple of years and there is now a pace and drive to take the business from good to great.”

Hydralectric are proud members of Made in Britain:

“Throughout my career, I have championed British manufacturing for the simple reason we are really good at it; our manufacturing expertise, our quality, our styling, and most importantly our innovations are, in my opinion, the best in the world. Manufacturing in Britain means we as a business retain full control of the output and in our business having full visibility of processes is fundamental. Therefore, we can continue to exceed the expectations associated with the ‘Made in Britain’ label.”
