On the 15th February 2013 BMI Hose UK announced they had ceased to trade and subsequently administrators were appointed on 18th February 2013. Hydraquip Hose and Hydraulics have taken immediate action to provide continuity of service to existing customers and national contracts.
We are pleased to announce that Linda Wilkinson who formally ran the National Accounts call centre at BMI Wolverhampton has been employed to manage requirements from national accounts and in the first instance Hydraquip will provide an instant account to any former BMI Hose customers to ensure no delays in reacting to critical breakdowns. Authorisation for repairs will require an email or faxed instruction issuing the job to Hydraquip.
Until further notice the same pricing terms offered by BMI will be held with the intention to hold these prices for as long as possible.
Hydraquip acquired 16 virtually new VW Crafter mobile workshops all less than 3 months old that had been supplied via Fleet Provider Ogilvie, this extends the Hydraquip mobile fleet to 62 Vans effectively now covering around 85% of the UK population with approved sub contractors backing up areas Hydraquip do not have coverage.
