Today, Questas Group announces that effective 1 July 2021 the Berendsen Fluid Power and Pacific Hydraulics businesses are merging. The merger marks a significant milestone in each company’s history and allows the combined group to offer an industry‐leading range of products and services
to their customer base.

This is a transformational step forward to form a national Australian leader in mobile and industrial hydraulics and is a once‐in‐a‐lifetime opportunity to combine our largely complementary portfolios, and geographic footprints.

Pacific Hydraulics CEO, Andrew Parkin and Berendsen Fluid Power CEO, James Leach

James Leach, Berendsen Fluid Power CEO, is hugely excited by the opportunity, “Pacific Hydraulics is a highly respected player in the market, well‐known for its dedicated people, and strong alignment to the globally recognised Danfoss brand. By combining the knowledge and experience of our two businesses, our customers will benefit from unmatched expertise from a single partner”.

Parkin, Pacific Hydraulics CEO, believes that, “the Pacific business will benefit greatly from merging with Berendsen, enabling an expansion of their current footprint, and access to Berendsen’s first class service teams across Australia. When complete, this deal will bring together two talented teams with deep hydraulics knowledge and expertise. The combined business will benefit our customers by offering an industry‐leading service and broader portfolio of hydraulics solutions”.

Both the Berendsen and Pacific Hydraulics businesses are leaders in the industry and, as part of the Questas Group, have common organisational support structures, similar company culture and an unwavering focus on customers, engineering and delivering a quality service. Both businesses operate nationally across Australia with complementary geographic footprints and the combined business creates a broader presence across Australia.
