our Onsite journey
Since 1987 Eastern Hose has a rich and proud history of servicing the UK’s fluid power industry. From humble beginnings we’ve grown into one of the UK’s leading hydraulic powerhouses.
Part of the Eastern Hose Group, Eastern Hose Onsite was established in 2017. Starting with just two hydraulic breakdown vehicles, our Onsite business has gone from strength-to-strength, culminating in us now operating the largest independent hydraulic breakdown fleet in the UK of 42 modern breakdown vans.
From the start of our journey in Ipswich, Suffolk, to more recent months, we have expanded our operation with new depots opening in Bristol and Newcastle. This is a direct result of accelerated job flow.
But we’re not stopping there!
We have plans to open further depots right across the country, over the coming months, as we enter the next phase of our expansion strategy – so now is the time to join our team!
Building a highly successful team is the backbone of any business. It’s no exception for us here at Eastern Hose.
We pride ourselves on having the highest performing team of British Fluid Power Association Approved Engineers in our sector. Eastern Hose is a company built on strong communication, hard work, market-leading products and excellent customer service.
Hand-picked by our Senior Management Team, we have the most highly skilled engineers within the hydraulic industry. Ranging from former RAF, Army and Royal Navy submarine engineers, we are proud to be able to offer customers the service of our very talented team – who are all BFPA passport holders.
“The job is rewarding and we get to work on some mega pieces of kit. The products make the job easier compared to others I’ve used. The bonus scheme is phenomenal and has been life changing.”
“Coming from a military background I was used to a structured workload and being busy. The job flow at Eastern is incredible. When there’s so many jobs it makes it even easier to earn vast amounts of money.”
“When joining I wasn’t expecting such varied scope of work. I’ve worked at the Houses of Parliament and some well known football clubs. It’s a fantastic company and I’m proud to be a member of the Eastern Hose team.”
our fleet, customers & Products
Operating the UKs largest and most modern hydraulic breakdown fleet – of 42 vans and rising – our team have ‘fully loaded’ vans that include market-leading products and the latest in hose assembly technology – all of which provides our team with a great platform to deliver an unrivalled service to businesses across the UK.
Working with some the biggest names in the UK construction and machinery industries, we have national contracts with companies such as Ardent Hire and Hitachi. Servicing over 5000 hydraulic breakdowns per year for these two companies alone ensures our Engineers are kept busy at all times.
We take pride in all we do, so using the best products available on the market is what sets us apart from the competition. Our unique relationship with Dunlop Hiflex gives our team exclusive access to their next-generation hydraulic products. Offering ultimate flexibility, these products allow our team to complete the most complex jobs with ease – something our Engineers love.
what’s in it for you?
Looking after our people is of utmost importance to us. We believe in rewarding our team for the job they do.
With an unrivalled bonus structure, our engineers are rewarded for the hard work they put in. It is a challenging and stressful job and we appreciate that but their ability to earn with our uncapped bonus scheme makes it rewarding and worthwhile.
Our large customer base provides continuously high levels of job flow, this allows our team to reap the benefits of our uncapped bonus scheme. It’s our belief that hard work, time and effort deserves huge financial rewards. We reward our people for their dedication to our customers and Eastern Hose.
Progression is part of your journey with Eastern Hose. Access to a full range of BFPA courses, training days and refresher programmes are all made available to our Engineers. It’s not just about the job you do for us, it’s how we can help you build your skillset along the way.
