Autopilot Pump UK Online Distributor

Regular visitors to our website will have noticed that we are now pointing end user customers to our new online autopilot pump distributor.  The Service Centre shop on Ebay now features our Hy-ProDrive gear pumps, actuators, hydraulic steering systems and spares for all of them.

As a manufacturer, we have decided to concentrate on our production processes, quality and supporting our OEM customers and distributors.  As our list of distributors grows, we feel a better service can be offered to end users through experienced local outlets who stock and understand our products.  A full list of our distributors can be found on our Website for both marine steering products and hydraulic control valves.  We also feature full technical manuals for all of our products and other useful tools such as the pump selection guide.  This guide allows customers to choose the right pump based on cylinder size and ‘hard over’ time.


The Fluid Power Show at the NEC was celebrated in style by our Hy-Pro team this April.  The last day at the show was also our 50th Birthday and Hy-Pro shareholders, directors and staff drank champagne to mark the occasion.  The toast to our next 50 years was also joined by Andrew Jell, one of the show organisers.  We would like to thank Andrew, Hydraulics & Pneumatics Magazine, Provision Photography and Witherspoons (who lent us champagne glasses) for helping to make the day special.

Once again, the Fluid Power Show was a great success for us and enabled us to showcase our latest products.  Our new radio remote system was an important feature of the display and, paired with our V5-60 sectional solenoid valve, it proved to be a popular diversion for visitors.  Also displayed were our new range of relief valves and our brand new pump with integral oil reservoir.  Our growing list of UK distributors was a key point of interest on the stand.

The Hy-Pro sales contingent (Alan, James and Richard) was boosted on our Birthday by our Quality and Design Departments (headed by Rob and Magnus) and a great day was had by all.  We plan to treat all our staff and their guests to an evening out at the Newton Abbot Races in May for our ‘Official Birthday Party’.
