The Early Days ...
The name Hydor is synonymous with the very best in fan engineering and system design, and the company is justifiably proud of its particular reputation in agriculture and horticulture, as well as industrial applications.
Established in 1963, Hydor initially imported propeller fans for poultry applications. As the business developed, so did Hydor's capabilities, applications knowledge and expertise in supplying a wide range of original equipment manufacturers in the UK market.
Hydor's continued growth established the company's presence in the agricultural markets of South Africa, Australia and Italy, as well as becoming a dominant supplier in the Middle eastern Countries with high performance fans and control panels.
Hydor also moved into industrial ventilation with the development of the High efficiency range of fans, also fundamental to poultry farming applications.
In the mid eighties, The Turbulator fan range developed Hydor's presence in Horticulture and Industry. Side wall and roof ventilation units complimented and extensive range, by now, widely used throughout these markets.
In the mid 1990's Logicon control systems were developed to produce Digital thermostats for use in conjunction with Hydor products.
Hydor has always been proud of its history and now, as always, Hydor products feature the attention to detail you would expect all drawn from the company's philosophy of designing around the customer.
And Now ...
So the tradition of first class ventilation products lives on, underpinned by the very best in system design to meet today's exacting applications and modern building techniques.
Hydor still operates from its original home town of Downton, Wiltshire in England, although it now boasts ultra modern premises and representation worldwide.
In 2003, following the acquisition by Elta Group, Hydor still continues to adopt the same cultural values - An enthusiasm, drive and determination that is expected of a privately owned family enterprise.
Then, as now, the company was a byword for excellence in design applications. This expertise has grown over the last 40 years and Hydor now leads the field in the design and technical innovation of its products and systems for intensive livestock buildings, commercial horticulture and other industrial ventilation applications.
