We pride ourselves in open, clear communication and aim for well-planned, flawlessly executed project delivery throughout the entire project cycle.

Bespoke hydraulic cylinders for marine and subsea use

We design and manufacture specialised hydraulic cylinders for reliable use in harsh environments. We have built hydraulic cylinders from special materials such as aluminium, titanium, stainless steel, and duplex steel which have been successfully commissioned in underwater (subsea) and offshore marine environments in the diamond, oil and gas, diving, and yachting industries.
