Houston Hydraulic is a third-generation family business owned and operated by the Spencer family.
Webster Spencer Sr. founded the company after returning from World War II service as a U.S. Navy Seabee.
Activities during the first years included repairing hydraulic jacks and machining parts for the U.S. Navy. An early project involved retrofitting a Houston Fire Department fire truck with telescoping lights to provide illumination for night time fire fighting.
In the 1960’s, we became a build center for Racine power units and even consulted on the hydraulics of the NASA Apollo program moon lander.
Hydraulics remains our passion and the primary technology that we sell, service, support, design, and build with.
