On November 1, 2022, SBP Holdings joined forces with Central Hydraulics. Central Hydraulics will operate within the Fluid Power Division of SBP Holdings. With this addition SBP Holdings will increase its North America footprint to approximately 85 locations with over 1,000 employees.
Central Hydraulics, established in 1983 is owned and operated by T.F. Strickland, Chris Chavez, and Scott Strickland. The business operates from five locations in Daytona Beach, Cocoa, Leesburg, Ocala, and Tampa Florida. Central Hydraulics is the region’s leading expert in hydraulic parts, systems, and repair and clearly understands and responds to the urgency of customers’ requirements. The business serves several key markets including general industrial and construction. Chris and Scott will continue to manage the operation during the transition and plans are in place to expand the enterprise through organic growth and cooperation with other SBP Holdings companies. “Our Team has been proud to serve Florida for decades,” said Chris Chavez. “We are confident that this transition will benefit our employees as well as our customers by providing a stronger network and expanded offerings.”
“The Central Hydraulic team is the perfect partner for us as we enter the Florida market,” said SBP CEO Craig Osborne. “The team they have built, the products and services they offer and their five locations are a perfect complement to our business and culture.”
SBP Holdings accelerates business with industrial solutions by providing hose, rubber, belt, fluid power and automation products and services throughout North America.
