Founded by Florencio Chacartegui, father of the current CEO of the company, Hidral was born in 1975 in the basement of his parents' house, in San Jerónimo, Seville. After acquiring experience in shipyards and in the elevator sector, Florencio and his associate decided to leave their respective jobs and create Suministros Auxiliares, a small company that has been operating until recently. They started making elevator accessories in a craftsmanship way.
At that time multinational companies began to arrive to Spain and new opportunities to grow started to open before them, and they knew to see that it was time to offer a different product. It was time to stop manufacturing and start marketing components and focus the business on manufacturing and supplying complete and ready-to-install elevators.
Since its creation Hidral is a company that manufactures exclusively for elevator professionals, this requires to maintain high standards of quality and self-demanding, as it is a knowledgeable and rigorous audience, which demands the highest quality and safety.
Our differential advantage is the wide range of products available. It is a flexible offer that adapts and personalizes according to the needs of each one of our clients.

Nowadays Hidral is a company that bets on technology and the maximum updating. Proof of this is the recent change in corporate identity, which is no more than an example of the pursuit of continuous excellence we have been practicing for more than 40 years.
