BLAINE, Minnesota, August 7, 2012 — Aggressive Hydraulics, Inc. announces the acquisition of the intellectual properties of United Hydraulics Corp. from Jarp Industries of Wausau, WI.  United Hydraulics designed and manufactured heavy duty mobile style hydraulic cylinders in Hampton, Iowa during the 1960’s, 70’s & 80’s.

United Hydraulics’ cylinders and service parts are a great fit for Aggressive Hydraulics as it’s consistent with our growth initiatives within the “service” sector of the mobile hydraulic cylinder industry.  Our ownership and staff have been working within the cylinder industry since the 1980’s.  Aggressive Hydraulics has an infrastructure which provides for timely responses on quotes to manufacture cylinders and parts from the blueprints of United Hydraulics.

Effective immediately, please contact Aggressive Hydraulics directly with any requirements for replacement parts and / or complete cylinders which were originally manufactured by United Hydraulics.

Paul Johnson, President of Aggressive Hydraulics, commented:  “I am pleased to have completed the acquisition of these intellectual properties of United Hydraulics which represent over 20 years of high quality hydraulic cylinder designs for a variety of OEM manufacturers and applications.  Most important, these blueprints are a wonderful opportunity for our resellers throughout the country to provide a greater offering of products and services to their respective geographical areas.  These blueprints are a great compliment to the Benton Harbor intellectual properties we acquired 5 years ago.  Information regarding the breakdown of cylinders that these prints represent by OEM, part number and application can be found on our website.”
