Corporate group

In 1971, Dipl.-Ing. Horst Watz founded a sales company for hydraulic and pneumatic systems. A short while later, it began to design and produce its own hydraulic systems.


Today, the parent company, Watz Hydraulik, manufacturers for customers across the world. It produces individual special solutions and also standardised units and cylinders.


With the acquisition of HydroService in 2014, Dipl.-Ing. Horst Watz took control of a company which was founded in 1964 which is specialised in the manufacture of custom and large cylinders.


Both hydraulic companies are complemented by Watz-Service GmbH, which takes on the on-site services such as assembly, maintenance and repair work.

Many years of experience make the companies within the corporate group to strong business partners.

With over 250 employees; today Watz Group is your point of contact for individual and standard hydraulic products as well as plants and systems for filtration technology.
