Berendsen Fluid Power, Australia’s leading hydraulics company, is this year celebrating a significant milestone – 30 years in business delivering high-quality hydraulic solutions and services for Australian industry.
Since its beginnings in 1993, Berendsen has been dedicated to providing innovative and reliable products, services and solutions to meet the ever-evolving needs of its highly-diversified client base. With locations throughout Australia, Berendsen’s commitment to investing in people, premises, equipment, technology and engineering know-how has allowed it to consistently stay ahead of the curve in the fluid power industry.
Over the years, Berendsen have meaningfully extended their capability, network and reach through a number of mergers and acquisitions, including acquiring Integrated Hydraulics in 1995, Eastern Hydraulics in 2004, Hydratorque in 2005, CCA Hardchrome in 2017, Hydraulic Technical Services in 2019 and a merger with Pacific Hydraulics in 2021.
They have also actively sought to provide the best products on offer to their clients by cementing their position as Australia’s premier distributor and exclusive channel partner for Danfoss Power Solutions and Pall Filtration products respectively.
Berendsen are not a business that is satisfied staying still, so they are always on the lookout for new, better, and more innovative ways to deliver exceptional results for customers. One such innovation is their Frontrunner technology – a 100% custom-built, cloud-based, digital service workflow engine that has empowered their service network to deliver improved accuracy, transparency and job turnaround, setting Berendsen apart from their competitors. This technology not only allows for quicker repair turnaround times, accurate reporting, and immediate access to real-time information for staff and customers, it is a perfect example of Berendsen’s forward-thinking business attitude and dedication to going above and beyond.
Berendsen Fluid Power Australia has also expanded its capabilities in recent years with the addition of new services, such as ‘better than OEM’ spec hard-chroming and investment in specific machinery and equipment required to provide superior services to Australia’s crane industry. Berendsen are now the only company in Australia with the ability to hard chrome cylinders up to 12 metres in length via their best-in-class horizontal rotation plating technology. Their hydraulic cylinder ‘Service Exchange’ offering has also been popular with clients in the mining sector, allowing users of heavy mobile equipment to reduce downtime and save on costs by exchanging their worn cylinders for rebuilt cylinders from Berendsen’s Service Exchange fleet.
At the heart of Berendsen Fluid Power Australia’s success is its commitment to providing nothing less than best-in-class products and services to its clients. Their team of experienced staff, engineers and technicians work closely with clients to understand their needs and provide tailored, complete solutions to meet every unique requirement.
Looking to the future, Berendsen Fluid Power Australia remains committed to being a thought leader, industry leader, and innovator in the fluid power industry. Not satisfied with being another ‘me too’ provider, Berendsen are always focused on improvement – they strive for better service, better quality and better products to exceed customer expectations. They will continue to invest in technology and process improvements to provide their clients with the best possible experience every time.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating 30 years in business,” said Berendsen CEO, James Leach. “We could not have achieved this milestone without the support of our valued customers and the hard work of our very dedicated team. We are excited about what’s to come and about the journey to develop new innovations and ideas that keep us at the forefront of the industry. We look forward to many more successful years to come.”
