WDH Hydraulics has been involved in the industrial sector ever since its inception in 1993. We are privileged to provide services to customers from steel factories, press manufacturers, and civil-lift and heavy-lift companies.

With our passion for hydraulics, WDH has worked extremely hard to build a good reputation in the industrial and maritime sectors. We deliver quality service and will continue to do so in the future. What does this mean? How do we do this for you? What does all this require?

Quick response time and professionalism

Our team of about 40 WDH employees knows how to respond and act swiftly. Our short lines of communication are very efficient and effective, and we have an aversion to departmental dividing lines within our company. Knowledge and expertise flow freely in order to keep a level of service that is second to none.

The best materials and components

Only the best materials and components are selected to ensure the longest-possible life cycle of a cylinder. Hydraulic cylinders must be kept functioning in every conceivable situation.

Cylinders are used in situations where warmth, cold, salinity, moisture, wet and/or dirt are challenges . Such demanding environments must be accurately understood to select the right materials for each application and any circumstances. For example, selecting the correct piston rod coating and seals is crucial. Also, the paint system must be determined based on the environmental conditions. The one affects the other. Every step in the production, modification, and repair processes is extremely important.

Intricate knowledge, expertise and craftsmanship

The highest levels of quality, knowledge, expertise and craftsmanship are key for success in our industry. WDH continually invests in further making improvements on all of these factors. Quality goes beyond materials, environmental circumstances, and durability.

Making solid stress calculations for cylinders and assemblies and meeting the requirements of inspection authorities are just as crucial. We fully understand the current requirements of authorities such as Lloyd’s, Bureau Veritas, DNV, CCS, ABS and Rijkswaterstaat (NBD 600 norm). Our products comply with the PED guideline wherever necessary. Further information regarding the various certifications can be found on our “About Us” page.

Total cost of Ownership (TCO)

Many industrial companies consider Total cost of Ownership (TCO) a key factor. We focus on the long-term effects and we wish to contribute to the sustainability and profitability of your business with as little unexpected costs as possible.

Insight in the life cycle of hydraulic cylinders

We understand the routine of preventative maintenance on your cylinders. At which moment does the piston rod coating have to be repaired or replaced? This routine ensures that your operation can continue with minimal interruption and maximum efficiency

Insight in the durability and a thorough understanding of the environment in which the hydraulic cylinder is used allows one to anticipate wear and tear and as a result, we can deal with the situation in a preventative manner.

Hydraulic problems are there to be resolved

Our engineers have never encountered a problem that they could not resolve with their years of experience, ingenuity, and CAD expertise. For our customers, this means that an effective and durable hydraulic cylinder solution will always be found.

A good collaboration cannot exist without trust

You can trust that agreements with us will be honoured and that promises will be kept. That everything will go as planned and agreed. In case something unexpected happens, we will promptly inform you about the issue and how it will be resolved. You can count on us!

“WDH’s efforts are of the essence for us. For example, we have the planned overhauls of existing hydraulic cylinders that have been working non-stop for a certain period of time. At that point, the cylinder goes on a transport to WDH.

There, the cylinder is inspected, revised, tested and returned ready to use. Sometimes, however, it turns out that overhaul is no longer sensible, from an economic point of view. In that case, the hydraulic cylinder will be mutually rejected and replaced by the WDH with a completely new cylinder.

They have also grown on the field of knowledge and expertise. We keep on raising the bar and WDH has understood this very well. Even after twenty years our collaboration still feels good and that gives us confidence for the future.”
