As a leading manufacturer of hydraulic cylinders, HMG has a reputation for delivering high-quality products that meet the needs of a diverse range of industries.
Last year we were proud to receive the Australian Made certification for our in-house manufactured hydraulic cylinders. Our products now display the famous green and gold kangaroo logo on the side, giving our customers peace of mind that they are made to the highest standards.
While the temptation is still there to order hydraulic componentry from overseas manufacturers, there are several compelling reasons to consider purchasing hydraulic cylinders made right here in Australia.
Supporting the Australian Economy
By buying Australian Made hydraulic cylinders, you are directly supporting the local economy and creating jobs in the manufacturing sector.
With the ongoing economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, investing in local production helps to boost economic growth and support communities across the country.
The more you support local manufacturers, the better their services and prices become.
High Quality Standards
At HMG, we are known for our high-quality manufacturing standards, with a strong focus on durability, reliability, and performance.
Our hydraulic cylinder eyes are made from solid billet as opposed to cast eyes used by OEMs, providing a much stronger and better wearing product, which is less susceptible to cracking.
Our hydraulic cylinders are put through a series of tests which meet and exceed OEM requirements and ensure our products will perform well and last through harsh conditions until their next service.
Pricing and Warranty
Due to costs of shipping, Australian manufactured products can often beat the prices offered by non-Australian manufacturers.
Not only do we deliver a higher quality product but our hydraulic cylinders are competitively priced when compared with the OEM.
They are also backed by our industry leading 12 month/5,000 hour locally supported warranty.
Improved Supply Chain Efficiency
Buying Australian hydraulic cylinders means a more streamlined supply chain and a reduction in lead times.
Customers do not have to wait on international shipping and customs hold-ups for items not stocked in Australia, meaning we can deliver faster than the OEM in some cases.
At HMG we also manufacture cylinders to hold as stock, so in some cases we can dispatch immediately.
Buying Australian Made hydraulic cylinders will reduce the environmental impact of your business. Local production reduces shipping distances, resulting in lower carbon emissions and reduced transport costs.
Additionally, Australia comparatively stricter environmental regulations than most other countries, meaning our manufacturing processes are more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
At HMG we strongly believe Australia manufactures some of the highest quality products on the market, and further investment in Australian Made products will only continue to improve our country’s output.
We currently employ over 160 locals at HMG; from draftspeople, to machinists, to spray painters, to ops managers. When we invest in our Australian manufacturing, jobs are created and communities prosper.
