Hydraulics Technology, Inc. (HTI) is pleased to announce a new strategic alliance with Technofast (Technofast Industries, Pty & Technofast Americas, Inc) an international tensioning solutions provider headquartered in Australia and USA, respectively.

Through the alliance, HTI will now be able to offer Technofast’s patented high-temperature tensioning product lines and other complementary niche products to our customer base. As well as gaining access to Technofast’s markets for HTI highly engineered solutions.

Certainly, Technofast and HTI gain valuable benefits, but the real winner here will be the customers, who now have one-stop access to over 80+ years of combined bolt tension expertise, customer intimacy and value innovation.
