Blaine Brothers has expanded its diverse capabilities into fluid power with the acquisition of Hydraulic Specialty Inc (HSI), a Fridley, MN-based company that offers hydraulic service and repair, custom manufactured cylinders, power units, winches and manifolds.

Hydraulic Specialty is a complete source for hydraulic products and service for on-highway and mobile needs. But HSI’s specialty is in the challenging and ever-changing off-highway markets, such as rail, mining and construction. Customization is their specialty.

“If it’s got oil going through it, we can do it – that’s our motto,” says Kevin McCarty, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Hydraulic Specialty offers repair services, systems engineering and design, and a complete inventory of products. HSI is an exceptional compliment to the Blaine Brothers entity. For over 45 years, HSI has been offering the expertise and full service operation of a big company with the attention to detail that a small company thrives upon. This emulates the Blaine Brothers model.”
