Family man Matt Palmer upgraded from a franchise to a full Hydraulink hose centre branch to meet growing demand from industry in Perth’s northern suburbs.

A Western Australian man who has gone from being a full-time employee to now expanding a major Hydraulink franchise in Western Australia says he and his customers are benefitting from a corporate policy that benefits self-starters who bring in-depth industry knowledge and expanded skills to their local communities.

The Hydraulink hose and fittings organisation has a strong focus on education, integrity, and making the very best of employees who want to join the company and those who want to take the next step – instilling pride in achievement every step of the way.

As the Western Australian government continues to stimulate the economy to combat the effects of Covid-19, Hydraulink franchise owner Matt Palmer has been operating at full capacity, servicing machinery large and small.

To meet demand in Perth’s northern suburbs – for industries such as roads, rail, marine, mining, quarrying, waste management and infrastructure including civil engineering and construction – Matt is now upgrading to a full Hydraulink hose centre branch in Wangara, WA.

“Having a hose centre means I hold greater stock, and I can serve even more customers to keep busy industries in Perth’s Northern Suburbs moving, saving downtime and delay,” says Matt. “Companies here value Hydraulink’s efficient, dependable service, and quality product that’s backed by total safety standards compliance and traceability. They are not going to risk putting their valuable machinery and plant into untrained hands, where problems cost time and money,” he said.

The hose centre will service the Wangara, Landsdale, Gnangara and Neerabup areas, with efficient 24/7 mobile service covering further afield. The centre forms part of Hydraulink’s network of more than 400 hydraulic service points across Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, bringing essential, safety-complaint hydraulic hose and fittings, as well as traceable service expertise, to industries requiring prompt, quality 24/7 service either on or off site.

“Hydraulink has backed me every step of the way. They supported my franchise journey, and they’ve been really helpful in the upgrade to a hose centre, including assisting me with finding the perfect location. Hydraulink is a family-owned company with quality products, so we’re proud to fly the Hydraulink banner in the Northern suburbs,” said Matt, who says he made the decision to upgrade in partnership with his wife, where they both thought it would provide the stability needed for their young family, including their two boys.

Matt has more than a decade of experience as a hydraulic technician, in New Zealand and Australia, and moved to Hydraulink because of the company’s can-do ethos and the clear pathways that reward competence and dedication.

Pathway to success Hydraulink’s Franchise Pathway model is designed to encourage talented and hardworking
employees to take the next steps with the company, with backing and support from a proven model.

“Matt is a real self-starter. He’s motivated, dedicated, talented and professional, so it has been no surprise that his franchise has been so successful. We’re thrilled to see him take the next steps in his career, and we have no doubt that Perth’s Northern Suburbs will benefit greatly from his expanded service offering,” says Hydraulink Australia Managing Director, Denis Matulin.

“This is our Franchise Pathway model coming to fruition. This is a great accomplishment for Matt, which has been well supported by WA State Manager, Andrew Lever, and the entire Hydraulink team,” he said.
