Hydro Group Systems has also expanded its footprint and workforce in the region with the launch of its manufacturing facility in Pinellas County, Florida, and the appointment of Christopher Scanlon, as senior design engineer.
Bill Mildon, Hydro Group Systems’ president, said: “We are proud to have been selected to provide this comprehensive scope to the US Navy, which further underpins our reputation as a serious provider of bespoke engineered cable and connector assembly solutions.
“We are firm believers in offering excellent service quality, and a permanent local presence in the US allows us to continue to surpass client expectations by offering a superior service, while building on our customer base.”
Furthermore, Hydro Group Systems has also announced a new partnership with Texas-based Design Forward an agency representing manufacturers who specialize in custom-engineered components.
