Supporting growth and operational improvement at a
highly engineered hydraulics company
Founded in 1968, Texas Hydraulics, Inc. (THI) is a leading designer and manufacturer of highly engineered, custom-designed hydraulic cylinders, swivels and related components for heavy equipment applications. Headquartered in Temple, TX, THI provides front-end design solutions for the most challenging applications in a diverse range of end markets, including infrastructure, utilities, natural resources and transportation.
Wynnchurch acquired THI in a corporate carve-out transaction from Dover Corporation in February 2016.
THI represented an opportunity to acquire an industry leader with an established track record of working with its global customer base to design custom solutions for the most complex applications.
Wynnchurch is providing support for management’s efforts to further implement lean manufacturing principles and create a culture of continuous improvement. The management team is looking to leverage the company’s engineering expertise and additional capital support from Wynnchurch to expand into new end markets, geographies and product adjacencies through both acquisitions and organic growth.
