Employees successfully gain fluid power training passports

We’re delighted three of our employees have successfully gained their hydraulic passports following training from the British Fluid Power Association’s training academy.


Hose technicians, Emily Stronge-Taylor, Laura Fenwick and Joe Joyce all completed the Hose Assembly Skills Training two-day programme which was held at our workshop on Sunderland’s riverside.


The course, which is carried out in both a classroom and shop floor environment brings delegates up to a sound level of hydraulic appreciation to enable them to develop into a quality hydraulic hose technician.  Delivered by industry professionals, the course gives both the attendee and employer confidence that the correct methods and culture are being adopted and used, topics covered include understanding hose assemblies, contamination, installation and hose management.


Laura Fenwick, who has recently celebrated her first year with the company, commented, ‘It was great to take part in the training and further develop my hydraulic knowledge, I’m looking forward to putting this into practice and hopefully taking part in future training too.  I’ve really enjoyed my first year with the company and really appreciate the emphasis they put on staff training and also making sure that we are always kept up to date with health, safety and sector knowledge.’

We have manufactured and supplied hose assemblies and fluid power products from our workshop in Sunderland for over 30 years therefore have many years’ experience within the industry with our customer base including national and international clients.


HOS Managing director, Don Fenwick, was delighted the three employees successfully passed the training, ‘In the fluid power, hydraulic and pneumatic industry, safety and quality is paramount which is why we are always keen to further develop our employee’s knowledge of our products and services.


There are dangers when working with hydraulics which is why work should only be carried out by qualified professionals, we’re delighted Emily, Laura and Joe enjoyed the training whilst also gaining valuable knowledge.’
