PIX Hydraulics Europe Ltd. is the Hydraulics arm of PIX Transmissions Ltd., the rapidly emerging, global power in the Fluid and Mechanical Power Transmission industry.
Since inception in 1971, PIX Hydraulics Europe Limited (formerly PIX Flexequip Hydraulics Ltd.) has been involved in the manufacturing of Hydraulic End-fittings and related products. With several years of experience and know-how in hydraulic products, the company has been renowned for its quality, product range, and competitive pricing.
PIX Transmissions acquired Flexequip Hydraulics Ltd. in May 2007 in an effort to expand its core activities and market share. Since the acquisition, the Lisburn (Northern Ireland)-registered company has moved key operations to Ipswich in an effort to enhance its service offering to both its UK/Eire as well as continental European customers. The move also allows PIX Hydraulics Europe Limited to optimise resources and achieve greater efficiencies, by co-locating itself with its parent company, which is a key player in the mechanical Power Transmissions industry.
The acquisition helped create a company that maximized the synergies between an End-fitting manufacturer and a Hose & Belt manufacturer. In the process, PIX Hydraulics Europe Limited not only enhanced its product range, production capacity, cost-efficiency, testing capabilities, sales, marketing, and technical resources, but also its market access, along with cross-selling opportunities in the Fluid and Mechanical Power Transmission market.
Besides Ipswich, the company also supports its customers through existing distribution centres in Lisburn for Northern Ireland and Ireland, as well as Cardiff. Both these centres are equipped to handle hose assemblies in addition to the distribution for hydraulic components.
