Apprenticeship period of Mehmet Arslan, founder of Hidrolift
HİDROLİFT's dream to grow was initiated by Mehmet Arslan with one lathe and one drill in a 30m² workshop at the Ata industrial area in Ankara. Back then,HİDROLİFT was a small-scale workshop working on hydraulic cylinder revisions and spare parts for construction equipment.
Transition to the Ostim industrial area, built entirely with the savings and hard work of small craftsmen and artisans. HİDROLİFTis now a developed company that has solid goals and dominates the local market
With 60 employees at Ostim, Hidrolift works on the revisions of hydraulic cylinders as required by Turkish industry and contractors in an enclosed area of 2,000m². It also produces hydraulic cylinders for industrial purposes and tractor steering cylinders for the automotive industry. It is a company with great local demand.
HİDROLİFT continues to pursue its goals and dreams. It continues investments with the desire to export and for a more modern facility. The foundations for this facility were laid in the early 1990s and it was completed with an open area of 15,000m² and enclosed area of 9,000m². During this period, a complete hydraulic cylinder production facility was purchased from Austria and moved to the factory.
HİDROLİFT, now has a modern facility with an annual production capacity of 80,000 cylinders, exporting 60% of its production.
With the philosophy of "the most valuable element is human," HİDROLİFT now produces and exports hydraulic cylinders for Turkey and abroad with its qualified personnel working with the mentality of total quality.
