«YeletsGidroAgregat» PLC: Experience Plus Innovation

In September 2014, “YeletsGidroAgregat” PLC celebrated its 70th anniversary. Over the years, the company managed not only to survive, but to carry out large-scale changes, which allowed it to take a leading position in the market of hydraulic components in Russia and the countries of the CIS.

The factory was founded in the ancient town of Yelets on September 4, 1944, and during the war time it repaired engines for military aircraft. After the war the production of various types of agricultural machinery and spare parts was launched. And then, in response to government regulation No. 268 from December 22, 1956, it developed the manufacture of new products: hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic amplifiers and hydraulic accumulators for tractors. The area of the “YeletsGidroAgregat” PLC is 14.5 hectares, the total production area – 40 thousand square meters; the number of employees is 678 people. The company is located in the Lipetsk region, at the crossroads of South, Central, North-Western, Volga and the Ural Federal Districts.

By the early 1970s, the company has become a leading developer and supplier of hydraulic cylinders for all tractor factories of the Soviet Union and one of the recognized leaders of agricultural engineering of the country, and by the end of the 1980s the product output reached 1.2 million hydraulic cylinders per year. In addition to civilian industry product, in the late 1970s the plant has successfully mastered the production of components and hydraulic units for the defense industry. In the turbulent 1990s, when the traditional links with suppliers and customers collapsed, the company leadership was able to keep the personnel and production potential, which allowed to begin a systematic and large-scale technical re-equipment in 2004. The factory bought modern metalworking machinery (including with CNC) of the leading European and Asian manufacturers, automated welding, testing and painting facilities, modern design and technology software products. In 2012, the modernization of the plant continued.

The company includes modern procurement, machining, galvanic and thermal, assembly and test and painting production, as well as the united engineering center. This allows “YeletsGidroAgregat” PLC to develop and produce more sophisticated and high-quality products and develop new types of hydraulic components, as well as to manufacture products according to customer’s drawings. The main types of products include the following:

  • Hydraulic cylinders for various purposes, with a sleeve (piston) diameter from 30 to 300 mm and strokes up to 9000 mm, with different attachable elements and for any pressure;
  • Pumps for different purposes – for fuel and hydraulic systems, as well as for water drainage systems;
  • Mechanisms of distribution of the working fluid in the hydraulic systems;
  • Valve and shut-off equipment of hydraulic systems;
  • Filters of pressure and discharge hydraulic lines;
  • Connection elements (pins and bushings);
  • High pressure hoses (HPH) from Dn-6 to Dn-25 mm.

“YeletsGidroAgregat” PLC is constantly working to improve the technical level and quality of the products, developing new technologies, improving its management practices. The company operates a quality management system in accordance with GOST R ISO 9001-2008 and GOST RV 15.0002-2003.
