A Thirty Years Long History
HYDRO-COS. was established thirty years ago in Puglia, a region in the southern Italy that was the heart of the ancient Magna Grecia. A place where every single drop of water is extremely important because of the geological carachteristics of the soil – highly permeable – that make very difficult the formation of surface water reservoirs to exploit.
In the first years of its activity, company’s core business was the manufacturing of special pieces for several worksites spreaded on the whole suthern Italy to moderinze irrigation network.
In that period reclamation consortiums and contractors were the Company’s main customers.
Over the years the evolution of the market, as well as the need to explore some new horizons, led the Company to explore some new areas, such us the manufacturing of couplings. Inventiveness and its long experience as installer, helped HYDRO-COS. to give a great potential.
Over the years, thanks to the introduction on the market of the Super Hydro fabricated carbon steel universal couplings, HYDRO-COS. almost dicontinued the production of special pieces, becoming a real market reference as coupling manufacturer. This led the Company to be a highly appreciated partner for public and private companies involved in water management, such as municipalities, contractors, reclamation cosortiums, etc.
More and more private and public companies recognized the HYDRO-COS. as a perfect partner, capable to help them fixing their problems thanks to tailor made solutions designed around their needs.
Over the years the product range was extended also to the designing and manufacturing of a new and revolutionary class of products: “Hydro Stop”, “Hydro Fast” and “Hydro Smart” encapsulation repair collars, designed to repair leaks on living pipelines without shutting down the service.
These products captured the attention of the AVK International A/S Group, the Danish leading company in manufacturing of equipments and couplings for waterworks and oil & gas.
The Danish giant was really interested to extend its business by including HYDRO-COS.’ innovative products, aiming to get new and interesting market segments.
In october 2020 – less one year since the negotiation started – HYDRO-COS. officially became a member of the AVK International A/S group, as a compamny specialized in manufacturing of encapsulation repair collars, couplings and tailor made solutions.
This was the best way to celebrate these first thirty years af activity, with the awareness to have achieved a huge milestone that will lead HYDRO-COS. into a new international dimension, ready to write a new wonderful chapter of its history.
