The Dutch multi-national Hyva Group celebrates 40 years in business in 2019, with Marco Mazzu, CEO at Hyva, explaining: “The journey from a small business in Alphen aan den Rijn to a multi-national business with a global network of 37 subsidiaries, 12 manufacturing plants and more than 200 distributors serving customers on six continents is one of entrepreneurial spirit and success. At Hyva, we are proud of this history and heritage, and it will inspire us to continue our strategy of customer focus and innovation.”
Established in 1979, with a mission to produce the best hydraulic cylinder and provide superior customer service, the business developed internationally in subsequent decades through organic growth and acquisitions to create a broad portfolio of successful products and a global business presence.
In 2017, a significant milestone was reached when the two millionth hydraulic cylinder was produced. The hydraulics business (cylinders and tipping solutions) is now complemented by container handling systems (hook- and skip-loaders), waste handling systems (transfer stations, compactors and refuse collection bodies) and cranes (fixed and rolling). Together with additional products for truck and trailers, this portfolio makes Hyva a one-stop-shop for the truck industry.
Hyva, present in the region for approximately 30 years, opened a MENA head office
in Jafza in 2012, which the company says has become a major factor in its sales volume soaring by 50% and market share climbing a further 25% throughout the GCC during the past five years.
