The Early Days….

Established in 1963, Hydor initially imported fans for poultry applications. As the business developed, so did Hydor’s capabilities, application knowledge and expertise in supplying a wide range of original equipment manufacturers in the UK market.

Hydor’s continued growth established the company’s presence in the agricultural markets of South Africa, Australia and Italy, as well as becoming a dominant supplier in the Middle Eastern Countries with high performance fans and control panels.

Hydor also moved into industrial ventilation with the development of the High efficiency range of fans, also fundamental to poultry farming applications.

In the mid eighties, The Turbulator fan range developed Hydor’s presence in Horticulture and Industry. Side wall and roof ventilation units complimented an extensive range, by now, widely used throughout the agricultural marketplace.

Hydor has always been proud of its history and now, as always, Hydor products feature the attention to detail you would expect - all drawn from the company’s philosophy of designing around the customers specific requirements.

And Now...

The tradition of first class ventilation products lives on, underpinned by the very best in system design to meet today’s exacting applications and modern building techniques.

Hydor still operates from its original home town of Downton, Wiltshire in England, although it now boasts ultra modern premises and representation worldwide.

In 2003, following the acquisition by Elta Group, Hydor still continues to adopt the same cultural values - An enthusiasm, drive and determination that is expected of a privately owned family enterprise.

Then, as now, the company was a byword for excellence in design applications. This expertise has grown over the last 45 years and Hydor now leads the field in the design and technical innovation of its products and systems for intensive livestock buildings, commercial horticulture and industrial ventilation applications.
