Hydrotech Inc., Cincinnati, and Fluid System Components Inc., De Pere, Wis., have entered into an agreement whereby Fluid Systems Components is acquiring Hydrotech. As part of this acquisition, both companies will retain their names.
Hydrotech Engineering Co. began in April 1967, with Pete Jones providing manufacturers with fluid power products, systems, and services. Later that year the company merged with Lou Wetherill’s company, Pathon Sales, to form Hydrotech Inc.
Rex Wetherill, Hydrotech CEO, said, “We strongly believe being part of a larger organization is the right thing to secure the long-term future of Hydrotech and our employees. This merger will position our companies to provide better opportunities to serve our customers in advanced manufacturing markets. By joining the FSC team, we play a key role in bringing the company one step closer to becoming a premier industrial distribution and systems integration company in the USA.”
