Total Hydraulic Services Ltd was formed following the collapse of the Hydraulic Machinery company in 1990.
Four partners formed the company and established a base in East Tamaki, providing service, spare parts and manufacturing to a rapidly expanding client base.
The company moved to new modern premises in 1996. The new 3000 sq metre site has a separate office facility and a modern workshop with four bays complete with 5 ton travelling gantry.
The large yard area allows for the largest mobile machinery to turn with ease and can accommodate a considerable number of machines at any time. The yard has an electrified fence to provide security from intruders when the yard is closed.
The workshop has large wide roller doors allowing access to a very large mobile plant for service or repair.
