Hydraulic Specialties Ltd. Engineers Success for Its Clients, in Business Review Australia

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - In a report in Business Review Australia, Richard Krebs of Hyspecs explains how the company employs highly skilled staff and products to provide the best hydraulic solutions for clients.

Engineers build the world and make it run, according to Richard Krebs of Hydraulic Specialties Ltd. (Hyspecs). Krebs would know, as he has been working with Hyspecs for the past 30 years, distributing, manufacturing, and designing hydraulic machines and solutions to power the machines of the world.

Hyspecs was started in 1972 by Wynne Cranston, a New Zealand engineer who decided to start a company that would offer a complete range of products from carefully selected sources rather than using a one-size fits-all manufacturer. Cranston also expanded the scope of services to include manufacturing certain products while also supplying highly skilled technical, engineering, and design solutions to solve the issues that his customers faced technically. Cranston built his company on the firm belief that a single-minded focus on providing success for clients would ultimately enable Hyspecs to succeed. This business reciprocity principle has reaped substantial dividends for the company.

"Our approach is that customer success comes first and that our success comes as a result of that," explains Richard Krebs, CEO of Hyspecs.

Hyspecs has five facilities located in New Zealand and Australia that employ 53 people. The two facilities in Auckland and Christchurch house the manufacturing, assembly, and service options for the company. Hyspecs has the largest hydraulic stock holding in New Zealand, managed through a combination of Kaizen principles, LEAN manufacturing strategies, an in-house quality control system, and in-house supply chain management software.
