Sheffield-based Neilson Hydraulics & Engineering Ltd, which produces power units, hydraulic systems and supplies a range of hydraulic components, has expanded.

The company has moved from its factory in Catcliffe to larger premises in Sheffield’s engineering quarter on Sanderson Street, in order to grow its in-house manufacturing and design capabilities.

The firm’s new 17,700 sq ft premises will enable the business to increase its production of hydraulic power units and systems, as well as providing additional space to design and manufacture Batch Mixing Systems, which are used in the construction industry.

Neilson Hydraulics’ new premises includes overhead cranes, centre lathes, milling, drilling, fabrication, assembly and test rig facilities.

Rob Turner, managing director, said: “We are now back in the heart of the engineering sector of Sheffield where Neilson Hydraulics were originally based.

“The new building is an important step in the company’s growth after we had fully outgrown our previous building due to large ongoing projects.

“The expansion will also now allow us to fulfil our plans to move forward with dedicated areas for testing and fabrication on these specialist projects and products.”
