About WCE

“Collaboration is at the heart of our business; enabling us to work with our staff, customers and suppliers in a way that delivers common business purposes.”

Manufacturing Hydraulic Cylinders

WCE is a family run business based in Herefordshire that has been manufacturing hydraulic cylinders in the UK since 1969 and following a rebrand in 2009 has gone from strength to strength.

Although farming and agriculture will always remain our core, we have diversified into a wide range of sectors including construction, mining and waste management to name a few.

We invest heavily in our machinery so we have the latest cutting edge technology. This dramatically increases our efficiency, meaning we can offer high quality cylinders at very cost effective prices.

Each element of the manufacturing process is completed on-site by our skilled and experienced team, we have our own in-house welding & automatic welding with MIG/MAG, purpose built test rigs, 2 pac painting system and ultrasonic component cleaning.

Whether you are looking to purchase a standard cylinder from existing stock, a standard cylinder with slight variations, or a completely bespoke hydraulic cylinder designed for your specific purpose, we will work with you to gather your exact requirements so we can recommend the best solution for your needs.

Collaboration is at the heart of our business

We are passionate about our people, our partnerships and our products.
