New facilities and mobile workshops

The number of HANSA-FLEX branches around the world continues to grow month by month. In addition to the new country organisation in Singapore, further hydraulic shops and specialist workshops have been opened in Tuzla (Bosnia-Herzegovina), Kaliningrad (Russia) and São Paulo (Brazil). Parallel to this, the expansion of the Rapid Hydraulic Service in Germany and Austria is continuing. At the central locations in Bremen and Linz, five and two new service vehicles have been put into operation respectively. In addition, an additional vehicle of the Fluid Service was put into service, which is used in the region of East Germany.

Lim Thye Ann is in charge of HANSA-FLEX Singapore

Lim Thye Ann knows the hydraulic business in the ASEAN region in all its facets. Over the past 17 years the experienced sales manager has worked for Parker and most recently 12 years for Uniflex in Singapore. He was instrumental in making the Uniflex brand known in the region and developing the company into one of the leading suppliers of hose assembly machines.


During this time he was in close contact with HANSA-FLEX China and Thailand. Looking for new challenges, he decided to go back into the hose business and set up HANSA-FLEX Singapore as Managing Partner. “HANSA-FLEX’s exceptional product quality, high degree of professionalism and customer-oriented corporate culture convinced me to seize this great opportunity,” explains Lim Thye Ann.


He launched operations in Singapore with a small team, comprising one Rapid Hydraulic Service technician and an office worker. “We’re starting here on a very small scale, but the ASEAN region is huge and you can grow very rapidly here if you’re faster and more customer focused than the competition.”

New Sales Manager for HANSA-FLEX Spain

Julia Ade is the new Sales Manager at HANSA-FLEX Spain. The internationally experienced sales specialist will initially take charge of sales in the Cataluña, Levante and Aragón regions, where she will be responsible for key account management and new customer acquisition. There are plans for her to assume responsibility for the nationwide sales management in approximately one year’s time. In addition, she already heads the Manresa branch near Barcelona.


Julia Ade studied in Tübingen and San Francisco, and worked for many years in Canada and South America. She has in-depth experience in the international purchasing and sale of steel products, and left her position as Business Development Manager with Thyssenkrupp in Chile in order to join HANSA-FLEX. The Stuttgart-born manager has moved her place of residence to Barcelona in order to take up her new post, and says she is very much looking forward to the possibilities it offers: “Because I was looking for a new challenge it was my wish to work abroad in Europe and get to know a new company and new products.”
