Complete Technology from One Source

Proud History

Optima Hydraulics was started by Helmut Herbst in August 1980, and quickly established a reputation for complete turnkey engineering solutions, to the highest European standards.

Today, Optima Hydraulics is a leading supplier of hydraulics, pneumatics and control systems, operating from a state-of-the-art complex with a factory floor space of 1500m².

Our speciality is the manufacture of special purpose machinery with integrated hydraulics, pneumatics and electronics.

Optima offers a complete hydraulic drive solution, backed by ongoing support and maintenance, scientific research and analysis, sophisticated testing and an uncompromising approach to quality.

Our clients span a diverse range of industries: from marine engineering and mining, to sugar milling and materials handling.

Our slogan 'complete technology from one source' is a reflection of our multi-faceted application of technology, and is supported both by the structure of the company and by an extensive product range: from mini hydraulic power packs and manifold blocks to high pressure test benches and compact, low-weight cranes.
