HOS acquired by R&G Fluid Power Group

We are delighted to announce that Hydraulic & Offshore Supplies have been acquired by R&G Fluid Power Group Ltd, a move that further solidifies R&G’s position in the UK Fluid Power industry and strengthens their hydraulics division in the North East.


Having been based in Sunderland’s riverside area for over 30 years, we have been owned by Alan Wills since 1985 and have extensive knowledge and experience in the fluid power sector.  We pride ourselves on our personal, family run approach, where every member of staff is a valued part of the company and our customers are respected and treated individually.


Commenting on selling the business, Alan Wills said, “Hydraulic & Offshore Supplies has been such a large part of my life for over 30 years, this was not an easy decision to make; however, the ethos and reputation of the R&G Fluid Power Group reassured me that the commitment of quality, hard work and personal approach to our staff and customers will continue.


I would like to thank all of the staff who have helped the business maintain many years of success and wish them all the very best for the future with the R&G Fluid Power Group.  I’ll now be getting used to putting my feet up and spending some well deserved time with my family.”


Managing Director Don Fenwick and Director, Paul Taylor, will continue in their roles and look forward to working within the R&G Group.  Don, who has been with HOS for over 25 years, commented, “This is a great opportunity for us to grow the business even further and solidify our reputation within the North East as the number one fluid power specialist.  We’re looking forward to continuing to provide a first-class customer experience and are excited for what the future holds.”


Richard Davies, R&G Fluid Power Group MD commented – “HOS has an exceptional reputation for customer service and innovative technical solutions, we are delighted to welcome Don, Paul and the whole team to the R&G Fluid Power Group and we look forward to working with them in the future.”


For customers and staff, it’s business as usual, the same exceptional service will be provided by the same experienced team. Throughout the years, Hydraulic & Offshore Supplies have gone from strength to strength and this will only continue under R&G.
