Founded by a group of highly skilled technocrats, Global Hydraulics Pte Ltd (GHPL) has developed a leading reputation for its specialisation in servicing hydraulic deck equipment for clients operating within the marine, offshore, industrial and civil construction markets.

Through the successful completion of operations in Singapore as well as overseas, GHPL has established a strong reputation for executing projects on time and on budget.

This office and workshop facility boasts 54,000 square feet of land, comprising 30,000 square feet of covered workshop space and 20,000 square feet of open yard area. Furthermore the location also includes its own comprehensive test rig facilities, allowing GHPL a high-level of on-site quality assurance and testing capability. The workshop’s high ceilings conveniently allow GHPL to operate cranes with safe working loads of between five tonnes and 32 tonnes indoors, which further allows the company to cater to the needs of its clients.
