Hycom is the leading specialist in complete hydraulic systems, including their control systems for the industry, offshore, dredging, civil works & aviation. Hycom originates from the Werklust company. Werklust was specialized in the production of earthmoving machines. A department of this company started to work in hydraulics. The technical possibilities of hydraulics developed quickly, as too did demand, mostly from the mechanical engineering and dredging industries. As a result a separate division specialized in hydraulic systems was established in the 1970s: Hycom. The company grew and began to serve an expanding range of markets such as the aviation, industry and civil engineering. Hycom remained part of Werklust until a management buy-out in 1986, which allowed Hycom to spread its wings further and expand its services.

Hycom has an appropriate answer to every problem in the field of hydraulics. They are ISO 9001 certified and also hold the EN9100 revision B-quality certificate for the aviation industry.
