HLS is a leading engineering & industrial supplies retail company in Ireland. We offer supplies, Graco & Lincoln lubrication and hydraulics repair services to all sectors across the country, covering engineering supplies, construction, industrial and commercial. But we didn’t start out this way.
A Little History
HLS began in 1992 as ‘Procrop’, where we offered specialists services to the agricultural sector in the form of the supply of hydraulic hoses and fittings. Although we began in very small premises, we became well known for our top quality services in this area and slowly began to diversify into the supply of equipment and consumables such as oils, tools, nuts and bolts, etc.
By 1996 this supplies part of our business had grown into a large enough operation that it warranted the creation of a retail division in its own right situated in larger premises in County Meath, which allowed us to expand our offering to our growing customer base.
In 1997, we were appointed as Leinster agents for the supply, installation and service of Lincoln Lubrication Systems to support the needs of customers that required centralised and automated grease and oil lubrication on their machinery and equipment.
