The Hydraulink national hydraulic hose, fittings, and service organisation is expanding throughout Australia and giving mechanically minded self-starters the opportunity to add income and become successful business owners

Hydraulink explains that its extensive national network includes 15 company-owned sites in Australia, 115 network partners, and more than 250 service vehicles offering 24/7 onsite and mobile services to the same uniformly high levels of outstanding service, safety, standards compliance, traceability, and diverse machinery and equipment knowledge.
“Hydraulink provides accredited training, outstanding support, and the backing of a nationally recognised network, so anyone who has mechanical aptitude and is looking to take the next step in their career can find it here,” Hydraulink National Franchise Manager, Wayne Abbott, said.
Examples of Hydraulink success stories, of which there are many, include those of Giorgio Katsambalos, Sascha Humphreys, and Mathew Xuereb.

Every day offers a different service opportunity for Giorgio, from truck and forklift fleets to heavy civil engineering and mining equipment

Giorgio Katsambalos – Hydraulink Bibra Lakes
After watching his father travel around for technical service work, Giorgio Katsambalos followed a similar passion and has become a dedicated mobile service provider in the Bibra Lakes area of Perth, specialising in the complex machinery and fleet needs of clients spanning market spectrums ranging from civil engineering, mining, manufacturing, metal fabrication, road and rail transport, agricultural tractors, heavy machinery, and hire equipment.
“I compared the best way to get ahead with my own abilities and the best backing out there – and the name Hydraulink kept coming up,” Giorgio said.
“It was recommended to me by industry insiders as a company with a long, 75-year, reputation for quality and service as well as for backing self-starters with training and career progression.
“And that is exactly how it has worked out – Hydraulink started me out at the ground level at the local office, getting me familiar with branch operations and systems in WA.
“Then they recognised my eagerness by putting me in the deep end to learn and work out on the road with some of the most experienced people in the business.
“Their backing and enthusiasm to see you progress motivates me now to always do the best for the customer and for the company that is backing me, because they looked after me. It has been a very good experience.”

Sascha Humphreys realised a dream in running his own business backed by a respected national brand with which he can apply his wealth of experience to customer service

Sascha Humphreys – Hydraulink Thomastown
Sascha Humphreys – a mechanical engineer with more than 20 years’ experience in Melbourne’s construction, manufacturing, and industrial sectors – says he is relishing the opportunity to serve the huge diversity of industry requiring hydraulic services to optimise the uptime and reliability of machinery in the major economic generator region for the city of Thomastown, north of the Melbourne CBD.
“I love technical details and solving the challenges that get people and their machinery moving, having spent the last 20 years down there in the trenches designing, managing, and commissioning engineering projects,” Sascha said.
“I have always wanted to run my own business but, with mortgages and children like most younger people, you need solid backing to step out with confidence.
“I had seen and heard of Hydraulink plenty of times before this opportunity came along, and I understood them as a trusted brand which I could optimise my skills and broaden their reach to the local market.
“All the staff I have met throughout this journey into a franchise are well skilled and have outstanding product knowledge.”

Mathew Xuereb has taken his future into his own hands by becoming a franchise network partner serving the Hawkesbury region of Sydney, where he was born and raised.
“I love the idea of putting my skills to work in my own home area – backed by the network quality and training standards. This is a dream come true for a guy with a passion for all things mechanical – it couldn’t be better,” Mat said.
“The great thing about Hydraulink is they give you a foundation of excellent training in all aspects of the job and encourage you to go out and run your own business if you want to.
“Their support and training are both wonderful,” added Mat, who was a fully qualified mechanic with seven years of trade experience before joining Hydraulink two years ago to broaden his horizons.
The Hydraulink family
As a family-owned company, Hydraulink says it places a strong emphasis on growing and nurturing its employees and franchisees through training and support.
It states that across more than 75 years it has attracted a broad pool of hard-working talent dedicated to 24/7 hydraulic services.
“Hydraulink attracts quality franchisees with a variety of skills in areas such as mechanical engineering, diesel fitting, machining and maintenance fitting, and other industries,” Wayne said.
“Many regional franchisees have existing workshop businesses and see Hydraulink as the ideal opportunity to grow their business and add another revenue stream to an already successful business.
“For anyone mechanically minded looking to take their future into their own hands, I would encourage them to explore what Hydraulink can do for them.”
