Founded in 1985, Hydroflow initially specialised in servicing pump shops and milking machine companies with predominantly rural water regulating products. From humble beginnings supplying from the owners garage, Hydroflow now operates from purpose built warehousing and distribution facilities in Auckland, Christchurch and Melbourne.

Leading with Knowledge gives Hydroflow its competitive edge and governs the way we interact with our customers.

Everything we do drives us towards one goal and that is to be Best For Project.

Hydroflow distributes many of the world’s leading industrial brands in New Zealand and each of these has been selected not only on product innovation and quality, but also on the quality and availability of industry leading technical support.

We pride ourselves in being able to add value to every project with which we become involved, with specialist technical knowledge and experience.

Suppliers rely on Hydroflow to establish and develop their brands in New Zealand.  Our success in achieving this is reflected in the strength of the brands we represent, such as APEX, gained in 1986 and Bugatti, gained in 1997.

The VICTAULIC brand, gained in 2009 is a significant addition to our brand portfolio and already progress has been made in gaining acceptance for the innovations this product range offers.

A major development in 2010 was the addition of ANKA Fittings for polythene pipe, with supporting products RX Threaded Fittings and Guyco Full Flow Ball Valves, to complete the rural market offering.
