Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia Pty. Ltd. and Gerrard Hydraulics join forces to expand service and product offerings in Australia.

Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia Pty. Ltd. has acquired the assets of Gerrard Hydraulics in a transaction that will result in expanded service and product offerings for customers throughout Australia.

Fluiconnecto is the brand of the Service Division of MANULI RYCO group, focused on fluid conveyance systems and solutions. Fluiconnecto prides itself on providing products and application knowledge, as well as maintenance services, from OEM to end-user in all market segments, through a global network tailored to local conditions.

Gerrard Hydraulics Managing Director, Simon Tarrant said, “we would like to thank all of our customers and suppliers for their loyalty and assistance over the last 45 years. Given our strong association with Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia, it was a logical step to integrate the businesses and fully capitalise on the strength of what Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia can bring to the Western Australian market. This acquisition will allow us to go from strength to strength and offer even better service to our customers. We are very excited in becoming a part of the Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia family.”

Fluiconnecto Service Division Regional Managing Director, Quentin Korff, welcomed the Gerrards Hydraulics team to the Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia organisation and said the transaction is an exciting development for the business.

Quentin commented, “we are focused on expanding the reach of Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia product and services offering, which currently has 13 service points throughout Australia. We can now leverage the strength of both entities to ensure we provide total coverage and even higher standards of service.”

Fluiconnecto Ryco Australia is looking forward to developing the full potential of this newly acquired business.
