About Us

Our passion for Hydraulic Systems will become apparent as soon as you contact us

Zeus Hydratech Limited was established in 2004, fulfilling a demand to supply a broad range of clients with quality Hydraulic components.


The reliable and efficient way we supply high quality components has meant that our reputation has grown over the years, which has led to an extensive and well-established client base. In 2016 we relocated to the South West to larger premises with improved warehouse, workshop and office facilities.

From the outset, Zeus Hydratech made the conscious decision to promote a selection of high quality hydraulic products and systems that have a reputation for reliability and performance. Many of our clients’ projects fall within the Rail industry, off-shore diving industry, aircraft development sector and food processing industry. Within Zeus Hydratech we have manufacturing facilities that allow us to design, build and supply our own hydraulic cylinders, rotary actuators, manifold assemblies and hydraulic power pack units.

Using our combined Hydraulic experience, Zeus is able to evaluate outline concepts and turn them into fully functional hydraulic systems.  As part of our component supply, Zeus offers a complete rebuild & service for all hydraulic pumps, motors, cylinders, actuators & power units.

For your total peace of mind, Zeus Hydratech operate to the industry recognised  ISO 9001 quality management system, a copy of our certificate can be found here
