Hyva celebrates 40th anniversary
This year, 2019, Hyva celebrates 40 years in business. Established in 1979, with a quest to create the best hydraulic cylinder and provide superior customer service, the business developed internationally in subsequent decades through organic growth and acquisitions to build a broad portfolio of successful products and a global business presence.
Expansion through Europe in the 1980s was followed by countries in Asia – Malaysia, Thailand, China, Indonesia and Korea. In the 1990s, subsidiaries and production facilities were established in Brazil and India, and, into the new millennium, manufacturing was also established in China. With additional subsidiaries in Russia, USA, Australia, together with Middle and Far Eastern countries, a truly global business network was established.
In 2017, a significant milestone was reached when two millionth hydraulic cylinder were produced. The Hydraulics business (cylinders and tipping solutions) is now complemented by Container Handling Systems (hook- and skiploaders), Waste Handling Systems (transfer stations, compactors and refuse collection bodies) and Cranes (fixed and rolling). Together with additional products for truck and trailers, this portfolio makes Hyva a one-stop-shop for the truck industry.
The entrepreneurial spirit and innovation culture continues to drive research, development and implementation of smart digital and electric solutions to address efficiency, productivity, safety and environmental challenges.
Today, Hyva is a customer focused, multicultural company with a collaborative culture and passionate employees dedicated to customer excellence.
“The journey from a small business in Alphen aan den Rijn to a multinational business with a global network of 37 subsidiaries, 12 manufacturing plants and more than 200 distributors serving customers on six continents is one of enterprenurial spirit and success. At Hyva, we are proud of this history and heritage, and it will inspire us to continue our strategy of customer focus and innovation, ” Marco Mazzu, CEO Hyva Group.
