Progressive Hydraulics

Progressive Hydraulics specialise in design, manufacture and installation of simple to complex hydraulic industrial and mobile systems.

With an in-house design team, we provide total solutions to a variety of clients in the energy, wood, plastics, recycling, construction and forestry industries throughout New Zealand and offshore.

We utilise our 3D SolidWorks PDM computer package to test the optimum design and strength, before manufacture in our Top Solid CADCAM machining process and parts procurement.

The Progressive Hydraulics team focuses on safe, robust, reliable and low maintenance systems. Our services range from supply of simple hydraulic fittings, hoses, motors and pumps to bespoke designs incorporating power packs for timber mills and hydro or geothermal power stations.
