About Us

HYTECH (the manufacturing division of HYSPECS) manufactures aluminium and steel hydraulic manifolds. The company was established in 2002 to fulfill a growing industry requirement for timely, small run, CNC milled aluminium and steel components.

What We Do

HYTECH produces and stocks a full line of standard hydraulic manifolds. With the aid of in-house designers, custom aluminium and steel manifolds are also designed and produced. Custom manifolds offer multiple function, layout, port and cavity options, to suit your specific requirements.

In addition to hydraulic manifolds, HYTECH is also geared to supply small and medium production runs of general engineering components for a wide range of industries.

Hydraulic manifolds are hydraulic valves that control the directional flow and pressure of oil in a hydraulic system, combining many separate valves into one compact integrated circuit.
