Hydraulic Supply Company, a fluid power distributor of hydraulic, pneumatic and industrial products, reached a major milestone in its company history this July by celebrating 70 years in business. The company organized an event to commemorate this special day, which included the participation of company employees, vendors and partners.

Hydraulic Supply Company was founded in 1947 by Harold Inglis as Aero Hardware & Supply in Miami Springs, Fla., to provide hardware and tools to the aviation market. With only two team members and the desire to do things right, the company became Aeroquip's very first distributor and gained recognition as a leader in the fluid power industry.

Driven by its core purpose and principals “to make every experience with our organization a positive one,” as well as the company's dedication to its customers and its exceptional team members, Hydraulic Supply Company quickly developed a solid reputation in the market, which made it successful for the past 70 years, according to the company.

Such a long and successful history could not have been achieved without the people who have supported its continued growth. Jim Inglis, HSC CEO and owner, spoke at the event and recognized team members who have been with the company for more than 10 years.

John Serra, president of HSC, spoke about the company's milestones, its dedicated team members and the support from its partners over the last seven decades.

Craig Arnold, chairman and CEO of Eaton Corporation, and Lori Kieklak, president of Eaton Hydraulics — Americas, shared congratulatory remarks with those present and recognized HSC for its long partnership with Eaton.
