Local business celebrates 20 years in tough times

Hydroscand is an international family-owned business, founded in 1969 in Stockholm, Sweden, providing solutions and services for hoses, fittings, and related products through a customer-driven organisation.

By 2002, Hydroscand was already a very well-established business in Scandinavia, owner, and founder, Björn Holmström had a long-standing relationship with Europower Hydraulics, having been their Swedish distributor in the early days of building Hydroscand there. The Europower business sold off its branch network. Björn Holmström acquired Europower’s branch in the UK.

Today Hydroscand is headquartered in the East Midlands and operates from nine branches in the UK with over 60 employees, serving customers in industries ranging from agriculture to construction to waste management. Its branches offer customers “while you wait” hose replacement. Three of them also operate as production centres, manufacturing hose assemblies for Equipment Manufacturers customers, including Sandiacre.

Its HoseExpress technicians have grown to 30 mobile hose workshops providing on site hose replacement and 3 HoseOnSite static containers kitted out with hose assembly machinery and stock to suit.

Rebecca Galley, Managing Director of Hydroscand UK, said: “Hydroscand has an ethos of being a family business with customer closeness at the top of our agenda in all our operations. I believe that is why the business has been around for more than 50 years, and 20 years so far in the UK. It has been a privilege to lead the UK team here for the past three years and as a team, we are looking forward to the next 20 years with energy and passion for what we do!”

To celebrate this exciting milestone, the business is holding customer open mornings at all its branches from 9am – 1pm on Friday 29th July. Join the firm at its Sandiacre HQ and branch in the morning. There will be exclusive anniversary deals for customers, a free bacon sandwich and a free gift with every purchase for customers.
