RW: Hydro has a high quality, innovative product, which requires less maintenance and reduces life cycle costs. Having established its own sales offices and sales representatives worldwide, Hydro is able to provide global services at all times. In order to accommodate customer wishes, Hydro expanded by establishing its own production facility in the USA as well as sales offices in France, China, and Japan. Over the last three years, the company’s turnover and number of employees have doubled to an estimated 165 employees worldwide and that is continuing to grow steadily. We plan to expand further by establishing additional offices worldwide.
