Standex's Hydraulics business segment, known as Custom Hoists, is a leading manufacturer of mobile hydraulic cylinders including single- and double-acting telescopic cylinders and piston rod cylinders. Custom Hoists is a global supplier of hydraulic cylinders to manufacturers of trucks and trailers along with airline support, mining and farm equipment.

Sales are made directly to OEMs manufacturing dump trucks, trash collection vehicles, lift trucks and other mobile units requiring hydraulic power.

The cylinders provide the hydraulic power to lift the payload of vehicles designed to haul and unload heavy material loads, such as rock, gravel, earth and coal. The cylinders are reliable and durable, even under challenging applications. A testament to the company’s quality engineering, Custom Hoists provides its customers with both the highest performing and lightest weight cylinders in the market, helping operators to reduce the weight of their trucks and thus reduce their fuel costs.

Custom Hoists has two manufacturing facilities, one in the United States and one in China. Warehouses and service centers are strategically positioned in Germany, Portugal and China. The Hydraulics Group’s headquarters are in Hayesville, Ohio.
