Since its inception in 1962, Hydrasearch Company, Inc. has been involved in the development and manufacturing of fluid systems and components utilized in demanding military and commercial applications. Founded in Annapolis, Maryland, home of the United States Naval Academy, Hydrasearch quickly established a close connection to our nation’s defense through a commitment to making excellent quality a constant in both our products and our services.
As a subsidiary of Dixon Valve, a leading innovator in the hose coupling industry for over 100 years, Hydrasearch has grown to expand its product line, as well as its customer base, dramatically. In 1994, the company relocated to Stevensville, Maryland, and in early 2016 it moved once again. Still located in Stevensville, this new 65,000-sq. ft. facility houses our production, warehouse, and administration in an open and collaborative environment, allows for increased efficiency in production and energy use, and offers space for further expansion.
With a strong desire to meet needs in all segments of the Maritime Industry, Hydrasearch acquired two new product lines in 2016: Arctic Steel Water Strainers and Pro-Mar Maritime Venting Solutions. These acquisitions were foundational in expanding our base of offerings and refocusing our supplier efforts to include the commercial and workboat sectors of the industry.
Through all of our growth and development, Hydrasearch has remained consistent in its allegiance to quality and customer satisfaction. We look forward to continuing to grow and improve to provide the best service possible to our customers throughout the industry.
