The Group prides itself on building long-standing partnerships with its OEM suppliers and in September was extremely pleased to announce the signing of a master trading agreement with the Hydraulics Group of the Eaton Corporation for the distribution of PMC products and the sole distribution of Eaton Winner hose, hose fittings and adaptors. The Flowtech Group of companies have had a long association with Eaton which dates back over 25 years. During this period, Primary Fluid Power became Eaton's leading PMC (power motion control) distributor and provider of total systems capability for branded Eaton Vickers Power Units in the UK.

The Group constantly looks to optimise its product offering. The business therefore nurtures its relationships with UK and European OEM suppliers whilst developing its complementary Exclusive Brands. The ability to develop and extend the range of Exclusive Brands in line with industry requirements has been accomplished by developing stronger relationships and working closely with the Far East supply base. This ensures targets in consistency of quality, high technical specification and product performance are achieved.

With the ongoing recruitment of locally-based employees in the Far East, coupled with the quickening pace of the sourcing programme, it was important that the Group moved quickly to create a more efficient stockholding strategy; a policy that will in time reduce the UK footprint and cost base, and streamline the overall Far East supply chain. The establishment of a small logistics facility in Guangdong province in southern China is the first step in a long term plan to extend resources in the region and support future growth across the Group.
