Why HYMIX

Celebrating 30 Years of Engineering & Innovation

Known for our ground-breaking innovation, HYMIX completed a game changing move at the start of 2018 with a new strategic business model. Analysing market need, HYMIX entered into a long-term supply agreement with a leading manufacturer. This has helped us to transform from a traditional manufacturing model to one which is backed by modern global automotive engineering standards.

The transition has took 2 years in planning and execution and involved a number of challenges.   The outcome can be seen in the product, processes and performance resulting from our investment that when combined together represent 10 years worth of progress.

The new HYMIX design was a key part in this strategy.  Sustained, long term research and development resulted in optimum materials and quality component selection.  Excellent mix and discharge performance now comes with the best payload in class.  The controls offer possibilities of integrated functionality that deliver real competitive advantage to our customers and their environmental impact reductions also possible.

We are also often regarded as supplying the best-looking machine in the market, the HYMIX design ethos of integration gives the impression of effortless ability enhancing our customers’ brand. It’s easy to keep clean too!
