Lockhyd Industrial Hydraulics was formed in 1986 as the result of a decision of the Automotive Products Group to dis-invest in the Republic of South Africa. The Manager of the Lockhyd Industrial Hydraulics division of Automotive Products Group, Mr. Neville McCallum, the incumbent Manager of the Industrial Hydraulics Division of AP, as it was then known, when hearing of the planned closure the division, proposed a Management buy out, to fulfil the need for continuing support of the substantial amount of Lockhyd hydraulic equipment already in use in the country. This would also serve to rescue staff members, and himself, from looming retrenchment. The offer was duly accepted by AP, and Lockhyd Industrial Hydraulics came into existence, with Mr. McCallum becoming the Managing Director of the new Company. (Reg. No.1986/004349/07) During this time, much equipment was supplied to the power generation, mining, industrial and agricultural equipment industries. The mid-nineties saw the patenting and development of the pneumatic mill loading cylinder (commonly referred to as the bag cylinder), which has positioned the Company very favourably to supply hydraulic equipment, incorporating up to date technology, to the Power Generation and Cement Manufacturing industries, among others. A license agreement exists with a British associate, to manufacture and market these products in the U.K., and other parts of the world where Babcock, ball type, vertical spindle, pulverizing mills are used. Manufacturing and repair facilities, allow for manufacture, or repair, of a wide variety of hydraulic, or pneumatic cylinders. Maintenance and repair of our various ranges of hydraulic equipment, such as valves, pumps and control systems can be carried out to the manufacturer’s specifications. Hydraulic test facilities are available to test and monitor the performance of all products sold or repaired. General engineering repair and maintenance work can also be handled in our large, well-equipped facility.
