Hydroscand Celebrates 20 Years in the UK

To celebrate this exciting milestone, we will be holding open mornings at all our branches from 9am - 1pm on Friday 29th July. Please join us at your local branch on the morning. There will be exclusive anniversary deals, free bacon sandwich and a free gift with every purchase.

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 and decentralized organisation.

By 2002, Hydroscand was already a very well-established business in Scandinavia, with operations in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Estonia. 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.

After a change of ownership, the Europower business sold off its branch network. Working with his associate Bob Rolfe, initially Hydroscand’s founder Björn Holmström acquired Europower’s branch in Gloucester.

Today we operate from nine branches in the UK with over 60 employees, serving customers in industries ranging from agriculture to construction to waste management. Our branches offer ”while you wait” hose replacement. Three of them also operate as production centres, manufacturing hose assemblies for OEM customers.

Our HoseExpress business has 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 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!”
