Custom Fluidpower, the largest independently owned hydraulic solutions provider in Australia, has acquired Gladstone, Queensland-based Dynamic Hydraulics.
Custom Fluidpower’s CEO Graeme Vennell says, “Dynamic Hydraulics has an excellent reputation in Gladstone and we are pleased to welcome them to the Custom Fluidpower Group. “The addition of the Dynamic Hydraulics team to our current Gladstone facility means we can provide increased service levels to our local customers.
“We look forward to providing current customers of Dynamic Hydraulics with additional services, such as design and engineering, to cater to their complete fluid power requirements”, he says.
The Gladstone branch will continue to be supported with technical customer service support, engineering services and additional labour from Custom Fluidpower’s Brisbane and Mackay branches. In coming months, Dynamic Hydraulics will relocate their offices, plant and workshop facilities into the existing Custom Fluidpower premises. Tony Pratt, the former owner of Dynamic Hydraulics, will join the Custom Fluidpower Group as Gladstone operations manager.
Custom Fluidpower has a solid history of experience in the provision of fluid power services relevant to the Gladstone region. These services include port authority ship loading hydraulic systems, underground mine machinery centralized lubrication systems, disc caliper braking systems for port and other conveyor drives, product supply and equipment overhauls for aluminium smelters and complete exploration drill rig hydraulic packages, including design and fitting.

Today, Custom Fluidpower Mackay has grown to 10 times its original size, with 500 plus jobs going through the workshop each month. They now employ more than 30 local people and contribute to the community through sponsorship of junior sporting teams and charity events.
