Hydraulic solutions provider adds 23,000 sq ft unit to headquarters

Coventry engineering firm Savery Hydraulics, is set to expand its headquarters after taking an additional 23,000 sq ft unit.

Located at Grovelands Industrial Estate, Longford Road, Savery Hydraulics is refurbishing the former industrial warehouse to create a modern manufacturing facility including an upgraded power supply to allow the testing of large hydraulic systems.

The company says that the space will provide a dedicated clean hydraulic assembly environment, with additional capacity to fulfil a growing demand for its high specification hydraulic control manifold and systems.

As part of the expansion, Savery Hydraulics has also made a “significant investment” in new stores facilities and a gantry crane for the assembly of large hydraulic systems, and improved test facilities to increase its capabilities and capacity.

The firm services a wide range of sectors including energy, logistics, defence, marine, aerospace, agriculture and automotive.

The managing director of Savery Hydraulics, Graham Wood said: “Our expansion into additional premises will allow us to capitalise on a growing number of opportunities within the hydraulics assembly side of our business.

“The most important thing in hydraulics is cleanliness, which is why the new dedicated clean environment and improved facilities will greatly enhance our capability to deliver several new contracts in the pipeline.

“It is part of a broader package of investment which has also seen us install a new 12-pallet machining centre for manifolds and a three-axis prototyping machine within our centre of excellence for manifold”.

Savery Hydraulics is part of the historic T A Savery & Co., which designs and manufactures equipment for UK and international customers, and has operations in China, Germany and India.

The company was established in Tipton in 1904 by the Savery brothers, who designed and manufactured marine steam engines and boilers for use in canal barges.
