Direct Parts Ltd was formed in 1993 by the majority of the current Group Board of Directors. After being extremely successful in the Coach and Bus Industry with Power Steering and Hydraulic Fan equipment the product portfolio was expanded to include Hydraulics for Industry and Off Highway in 1995, at this point Direct Ltd was formed.
It’s not surprising to understand that with rapid expansion in these market sectors that we needed our own machining facility. In 2002, Direct Development Engineering Ltd was created to support the expanding business, working out of its own fully equipped machining facility.
The Group structure was completed when in 2006, Direct Hydraulic Services Ltd was developed to enable further company growth. This new company provided in-house and onsite Hydraulic Fabrication repair and refit capabilities from its own factory near the rest of the group in Cheddleton, Staffordshire.
