Over 40 years of expertise

In our forty-years, we’ve become the UK’s leading lorry-loader crane manufacturer, goods lift manufacturer, and lighting winch manufacturer.

Dedicated to the local community

Like many businesses in our area, Penny Hydraulics has roots in the mining industry. Our mining roots sparked a flair for innovation as well as an appreciation for the community we work in.

Community and engineering are important driving forces for us at Penny Hydraulics, so we are dedicated to giving back where we can. We invest time, effort and funds into local community causes and open a gateway for young engineers through our apprenticeship schemes. In fact, over 10% of our workforce are apprentices.
