With high demand for its product range driving continuous growth, Hydrajaws Ltd has relocated its headquarters to Tamworth, UK, in response to its need for additional capacity, unavailable at its previous premises.
Hydrajaws’ new headquarters covers 20,000 square feet and houses Hydrajaws’ manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing, as well as training and service operations, in support of its business in over 70 countries across all continents. It has distributors in the USA, Australia and Europe, as well as a network of global service agents and field support teams, which, together, offer comprehensive support to its worldwide customer base.
The new building has been designed and built to meet high efficiency standards, including using the latest materials, renewable energy in the form of solar panels, water conservation measures and new IT infrastructure. Anticipating growth in electric car usage, charging points for staff and visitors have also been included on-site.
Hydrajaws CEO, Adrian Morgan, said of the move: ‘The high-quality and robust nature of our products has seen demand outgrow our supply capacity, hence our investment in a new HQ operation, helping to ensure continuity of supply and services to our customers. The all new building not only future proofs demand, but also enables a more efficient and cost-effective flow for our manufacturing and distribution process, plus the establishment of more comprehensive training, research and development, as well as service and testing facilities, to serve our growing global customer base.”
Among its business activities, the company supplies several large OEMs in the anchors and fixings sector and its comprehensive range of equipment has been used on several major construction projects, most recently Crossrail and now HS2 in the UK.

He has an extensive background in a diverse range of industries from automotive, and chemicals to off-highway and logistics experience in B2B manufacturing and distribution.

“It’s a very exciting time to be joining Hydrajaws,” commented Stephen. “We have an excellent established team and a trusted name within the pull testing industry. I am looking forward to leading and evolving
the business during its next stage of significant development.”
Adrian Morgan added: “At a time when Hydrajaws is growing and expanding its footprint across our customer base worldwide, it is appropriate, as an important part of our growth strategy, to establish this new leadership role for the business.”
