Our capabilities

Continental Hydraulics strives to be a recognized and respected name in the fluid power industry by providing our customers with service, innovation and products that exceeds their requirements.

To provide a complete range of products to fulfill the needs of our customers and distributors. We will continually focus on improvements for the delivery and quality of our products and services. Our purpose is to deliver operational and financial results that satisfy the expectations of our customers and stakeholders.

Continental Hydraulics was established in 1962 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In our early years the business was focused on the supply of hydraulic components and systems for use in the production of hydraulics band saws by the parent company, Continental Machines. During the 1970’s and 1980’s the company added many products including directional valves, proportional valves, vane pumps, piston pumps, and hydraulic systems. Our products continue to be successful in a variety of markets and applications in the industrial and mobile segments.

2011 marked a new beginning for Continental Hydraulics when the hydraulics business was acquired by Duplomatic MS SpA, based in Parabiago, Italy. This ownership change by a strategic player in the hydraulics market has opened new opportunities to cooperate in the development of new products and capital investment to support growth and expansion for the business. With a broader product offering, our position is improved to be a more complete supplier to our distributor partners and customers.

In March 2017 the Company’s major shareholder became Fund Alcedo SGR. This independent private equity firm invests in small and medium sized companies with high potential growth in the industrial and service sectors. Fund Alcedo SGR is committed to following the strategic plan of the business and continuation of investment to achieve growth.

While we are proud of our heritage, we are excited about our future. Our knowledgeable, experienced employees are committed to our future by providing superior service to our customers with a high quality products and systems.
