Each decade since the 80’s has seen hyde make significant advancements taking opportunities to develop and grow its business while maintaining its core values of performance, quality, service and technology.

The factory is wholly owned by Hyde and all the 250 staff are Hyde employees ensuring that the operation retains the same values and ethos as when manufacturing was based in the UK
