Price Engineering recently expanded its repair, rebuild, retail, and field service operations, with the opening of a 15,000-ft2 addition at its headquarters in Hartland, Wis. The new addition will also serve as the central location for Price On-Site, which provides in-plant and remote field services within Wisconsin and the U.S.

The expansion also allows Price Engineering to offer expanded capabilities in cylinder repair, pump, motor, valve, gearbox, and hydraulic system repairs. A variety of machine tools, test equipment and welding equipment allow the company to service a wide variety of hydraulic system components. In addition, four 1/2-ton Jib cranes and a 15-ton bridge crane allow it to tackle small- to large-scale projects.

The Hartland addition is home to the soon-to-open Hartland Price Hose Center, an authorized Eaton Aeroquip express hose store that specializes in the sale of fluid conveyance components and on-demand, custom hose assemblies. Extended capabilities include, but are not limited to:
