A Letter from the Husco CEO

It’s an exciting time to be at Husco! Before I left Husco in the summer of 2016 to spend one year working in the White House, Husco announced a restructuring of our North American manufacturing footprint. We have successfully completed the restructuring and are currently in the midst of major renovations in Shanghai, China; Waukesha, Wisconsin; and Maquoketa, Iowa to upgrade our manufacturing capacity and modernize our facilities. In addition, we have opened offices in Germany and Detroit to better serve our customers around the world.

Our updated facilities will help us launch a number of market-shifting new technologies that will dramatically improve the productivity, efficiency and safety of excavators, forklift trucks, motor graders, agricultural tractors and automobiles. All of these new products are based on proprietary designs and many incorporate Husco’s new suite of electro-hydraulic cartridge valves.

In conjunction with the investment we are making in new equipment, facilities and talent, Husco is updating its brand and logo to better align with the innovative, risk-taking, high performance culture that we have built over the last 35 years of Ramirez-family ownership. A refreshed website marks the official launch of our new brand and you will see the new look incorporated into all product materials and correspondence going forward.

Husco’s Off-Highway and Automotive divisions pride themselves on the research, development and high-volume manufacture of electro-hydraulic flow and pressure control solutions. I encourage you to browse through our new website to learn more about these exciting new products. In particular check out how Off-Highway is breaking down the barriers of manual hydraulics, and how Automotive is creating the digital fluid control needed to achieve peak vehicle performance.

Alongside all the positive developments at Husco, we are also navigating the fallout from the Trump Administration’s new tariff policies.  We will collaborate with our suppliers and customers to adapt to the rapidly evolving global trade environment as quickly and effectively as possible.
