RYCO 24•7 and 82°C Hose & Fittings join forces to expand service and product offerings to New Zealand customers

RYCO Hydraulics Ltd has acquired the assets of 82°C Hose & Fittings in a transaction that will result in expanded service and product offerings for customers throughout New Zealand.

Following an eight-year period as RYCO 24•7 New Zealand Network Partner – 82°C Hose & Fittings now becomes fully integrated with the RYCO organisation which will enable the combined business to develop and introduce new levels of service in the New Zealand market.

82°C Hose & Fittings General Manager, David ‘Shaggy’ Lowe said, “this is the start of an exciting era for both RYCO and 82°C staff members, with growth and expansion plans already being discussed”.

“We look forward to continuing to service the customers and suppliers that we have worked with over the past 16 years and in the years to come. Given our strong association with RYCO, it was a logical step to integrate the businesses and fully capitalise on the strength of what RYCO can bring to the New Zealand market.”

RYCO CEO, Leigh Morrison, welcomed the 82°C team to the RYCO organisation and said the transaction is an exciting development for the business. “We are focused on expanding the reach of RYCO 24•7 New Zealand, which currently has 18 service points throughout New Zealand within both the North and South Island providing breakdown service 24 hours, 7 days a week. We can now leverage the strength of both entities to ensure we provide total coverage and even higher standards of service.”
