Forest Hydraulics was founded in 1984 by Steve Brown, who is still owns and manages the business today.
There are three main strands to the business, all held under one roof which makes us very different to the competition.
We have a busy Trade Counter serving the local area for hydraulic hose assemblies, all manner of industrial hose, pneumatic fittings, oils, filters, ram and cylinder repairs, brazing, welding and a whole host of ancillary equipment.
On-Site Hydraulic Hose Repairs
We operate a fleet of very well stocked mobile repair vans covering London and the Home Counties, offering a 24 hour service. From day one we've made sure that our vans are very well stocked with a wide variety of fittings - it's not very often that we can't do the job on site. We've always felt that making sure that our vans carry the maximum variety of stock is more important than 'ETA One Hour'!
Wholesale Distribution & Manufacturing
We supply hydraulic distributors and OEMs with bulk quantities of standard adaptors from stock in a wide variety of thread types including Japanese. Our customer base is global, with customers in Europe, Cyprus, Israel, USA, Canada, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, UAE, South Africa, Korea and even in China. Exports now account for about 30% of sales.
In addition to our long term suppliers in Korea, China and the UK, we still have our own production facilities, although since 2008 this have been greatly reduced and our machines are now located in Coventry.
With a variety of suppliers and our own manufacturing facilities we can offer a comprehensive range of adaptors at competitive prices and most importantly we have the stock, so same day dispatch is the norm.
It's these three strands combined that give Forest its strength. Our Trade Counter and Mobile Service have the benefit of our huge adaptor stocks, probably the largest in South East England, and our national and international customers have the backing of our Trade Counter expertise and comprehensive stock.
