About us

We are driving the success of our customers.

To meet this objective we have been developing, designing and manufacturing high-quality hydraulic cylinders since 1973, which today are in demand all over the world.

Many of our individually developed cylinders are industry-standard, which is the result of a modular product line policy thus offering our customers efficient individuality and quick availability.

Developing the vision on obvious elements and maintaining trusting relationships with our business partners are part of our tradition.

Since 2010 AHP Merkle has been located in the completely redesigned company head office in Gottenheim near Freiburg. Here internal routes have been shortened even further, the goods flow optimised, space created for ideas and competency of our employees and our common objective: Success for our customers.

AHP Merkle set up a subsidiary in Shenzhen China in 2007. In order to better serve customers in East China and North China, we moved to Suzhou including warehouse in 2016. The company was renamed Suzhou Merkel Hydraulic System Co., Ltd.
