The Oilpath story began in the mid 1970s when the company founder Brian Baker saw a gap in the market for directional control valves to be delivered better in Australia. Soon, the OP20 was born instantly becoming the industry benchmark.
In 2013 Oilpath were awarded an AusIndustry (Australian Government) grant in recognition of our team’s success in taking a complex hydraulic solution from concept to commercialisation. We have the team and infrastructure to do the same for your project.
Our factory is located in Adelaide and we continue to be proudly Australian owned and operated. With a vast understanding of the national and global market we are able to provide world class service with a local feel. You can talk to one of our friendly staff members at any time who will be glad to discuss our range of products and how they fit your needs.
Products are tested before leaving the factory, so when it arrives at your business, you can be rest assured it will work, 100% of the time. When providing a complete hydraulic solution Oilpath uses a 4 phase design procedure:
Rigorous simulation testing of circuit prior to manifold design.
3D CAD design and manufacturing drawings.
Prototype manufactured utilising our in house CNC facilities which include 5 axis machine capabilities, backed up by our on-site engineering team.
Full on-site system testing prior to project sign-off.
Partnerships – as a customer of Oilpath you can be assured that you have chosen a transparent partner to your business. We pride ourselves on our open communication and ability to deliver your requirements on time, every time.
Oilpath have been operating from our Adelaide factory since 1977. We have distributors in all states who proudly stock a large range of Oilpath products but if by chance you need something that isn’t off the shelf, our central manufacturing hub can supply direct.
Oilpath are passionate believers in the innovation that exists in Australian manufacturing but also understand the importance of a global supply chain, including many key suppliers and key customers all around the world, such as HydraForce (the world’s largest hydraulic cartridge manufacturer). In fact, in 2012 Oilpath was awarded the distinction of being the 5th largest international HydraForce distributor in the world.
