UFI Filters Hydraulics Strengthens its Presence in Korea with a New Production Plant

UFI Filters Hydraulics is pleased to announce a significant milestone in its commitment to the Korean market – the inauguration of a state-of-the-art production plant in Gimpo, Korea.

A Strong Presence in Korea

UFI Filters Group’s Hydraulic Division broke into the Korean market with a dedicated sales office in 2017.
The first Korean sales office was established to provide local customers with prompt service and access to a wide range of high-quality filters, elements and hydraulic accessories manufactured by UFI Filters Hydraulics.
Over the years, the company has developed a strong partnership with the HCE Group, a world leader in the manufacture of excavators and construction equipment, to provide a complete range of pilot and return line filters to ensure optimum performance within hydraulic systems.
For this reason, UFI Filters Hydraulics is recognized as a reliable supplier to the Korean market.

The New Production Plant in Gimpo

In 2024, UFI Filters Hydraulics opened a new production facility to meet the growing demand for high-quality hydraulic filtration products.
This cutting-edge facility, covering 1,000 square meters, is exclusively dedicated to the manufacture of hydraulic filters and elements for the local market.
Moreover, the new production plant is equipped with a pressure drop test bench that is also suitable for high flow rates.
The establishment of this local manufacturing facility is an important demonstration of UFI Filters Hydraulics’ commitment to the Korean market.
Indeed, the company is increasingly positioning itself as a key player in meeting the evolving needs of the region.

Advantages of Localized Manufacturing

The establishment of the Gimpo structure illustrates UFI Filters Hydraulics’ approach to efficiency, flexibility and responsiveness.
Local production of hydraulic filters allows UFI Filters Hydraulics to reduce lead times, improve product customization and respond quickly to the needs of the Korean market.
This strategic choice provides customers with high-quality products and simplifies logistics management, making it faster and easier.

Comprehensive Local Support and Service

With the combination of a dedicated sales office and a new manufacturing facility in Korea, UFI Filters Hydraulics offers its customers unparalleled support and service.
The company’s team is committed to understanding the unique needs of each of its clients and finding the right hydraulic filtration solution for each specific hydraulic system.
This localized approach not only strengthens UFI Filters Hydraulics’ relationship with its existing partners, like the HCE Group, but also establishes a foundation for building new collaborations in the region.
As UFI Filters Hydraulics continues its global expansion, the new production plant is a tangible demonstration of its vision for innovation, quality and total customer satisfaction.
