Allen Engineering (AEC) is a family-owned and operated company founded in 1964 and based in Paragould, Arkansas, USA with a high vertical range of manufacturing capabilities including raw material, sheet metal work, welding, and assembly of hydraulic machines. This makes them an ideal partner for HYDRO Systems KG, as our values align perfectly with their owner-operated business model.
The cooperation between HYDRO Systems KG and AEC will focus on the production of the new RA Axle-Jacks, which are manufactured in the US. The RA Axle Jack is an innovative piece of equipment with a unique design and features that make it highly versatile. It is suitable for use on both narrow and wide-body aircraft and offers reduced maintenance costs, increased versatility, and ease of use with large castors for ground clearance. It is also robust enough for outdoor use, making it a highly desirable product for aircraft maintenance professionals.
The RA Axle-Jacks engineered by HYDRO Systems KG and manufactured by AEC will be produced and shipped directly to customers. „This cooperation is just the beginning, and we plan to expand it to other products in the future“, emphasized Martin Dürr, Executive Vice President Ground Support Equipment & Military Business, and adds, „We have been in talks since last year in autumn, and we are thrilled to be able to finally announce this exciting partnership.“
“AEC is honored and excited to work with such a world class company as HYDRO Systems to meet their customers’ needs for high quality products in North America. With the cooperation of HYDRO Systems KG and AEC, customers can rest assured that they are receiving high-quality equipment that is manufactured in the USA. This partnership is a testament to our commitment to producing innovative products. We look forward to a successful collaboration with Hydro Systems KG to delivering the best possible products to their customers.” Jay Allen, CEO of Allen Engineering Corp.
