Company History

Our Beginnings

The HUSCO International story began in 1983 when Agustin Ramirez, Jr. was assigned to develop a strategic plan for HUSCO International, a subsidiary of Koehring/AMCA. Ramirez recognized the tremendous growth potential that could be unlocked by separating HUSCO from AMCA and allowing the company to market its products to other major OEMs of off-highway equipment. This conclusion ultimately led Ramirez to lead a management buyout of HUSCO in 1985. Over the subsequent twenty years, HUSCO grew from a niche North American supplier into a global industry leader.

Today HUSCO International, Inc. is a global leader in the development and manufacture of hydraulic and electrohydraulic controls for off-highway applications. HUSCO assists OEM engineers throughout the product development process – working as an extension of the OEM engineering staff. Experienced in concurrent engineering practices, HUSCO provides support from the conceptual stage to the production stage of product development to maximize product value and performance. With facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, HUSCO is strategically positioned to meet your hydraulic power control application needs. Since 1999, HUSCO has been expanding its presence in the automotive component space, focusing on technology to make vehicles more efficient. The company is pioneering many engine component technologies to increase vehicles’ actual miles per gallon including variable valve timing, variable pumps, cylinder deactivation and other methods.

Measured by the National Fluid Power Association, HUSCO is an industry leader in virtually all measures of productivity, quality, R&D investment intensity, market share and sales growth. HUSCO continues to expand its production capabilities around the world. In addition to its exceptional growth, HUSCO continues to be a global manufacturer focused on offering cost-effective, superior engineering solutions. HUSCO’s uncompromising dedication to providing the highest value products and exceptional customer service remains unchanged.
