Historical Background and Evolution

Established in 1978 by our founder, John Penny Senior, Penny Hydraulics originally focused on the service and manufacture of hydraulic roof supports for the coal mining sector. This work demanded a wide range of engineering expertise that was the key to our innovation and diversification to expand rather than decline as the coal mining industry wound down.

Diverse Portfolio and Leadership

Today, the company is led by the founder’s sons and, while hydraulic engineering remains a vital part of our operations, it represents just 15% of our diverse portfolio. Our capabilities now extend across a wide spectrum of engineering solutions including, goods lifts, cranes to load vehicles, multi-directional forklift trucks, lighting winch systems, nuclear decommissioning equipment, and much more.

Reflecting Growth and Capabilities

In response to these advancements and to better reflect our expanded range of services, the Board decided to rebrand the company as Penny Engineering Limited. By adopting the new name, we aim to highlight our comprehensive engineering capabilities and attract a broader client base seeking innovative solutions.
