Mobile Hydraulics Equipment Company, manufacturer of the HIPPO Multipower product line, is a leading producer of severe duty mobile power systems. The HIPPO Multipower unit combines hydraulic power units (HPU), electric generators, air compressors and DC welders into a single, tough, mobile unit designed to power all the tools in a heavy duty toolbox, simultaneously if necessary.
Their customers work in demanding conditions, often in remote areas where access to dependable power to run tools is a challenge. Customers range from contractors to railroads, utilities and the military. They also partner with major manufacturers such as Polaris and Caterpillar, who incorporate HIPPO Multipower units into their vehicles and equipment to bring efficient power capabilities onto diffi cult job sites easily.
Working as an OEM supplier can be demanding, and a new job they were awarded required Mobile Hydraulics to provide comprehensive quality documentation. With a tight timeline, they needed someone with the deep knowledge and ability to do the job quickly and accurately. Missouri Enterprise was the perfect solution.
Working with Mobile Hydraulics’ engineers and production people, the quality management experts at Missouri Enterprise produced detailed PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) documentation of the company’s production processes, showing the OEM Mobile Hydraulics’ ability to produce a consistent product on spec and on quote.
“Missouri Enterprise did a great job,” says Chris Klope, Chief Operations Offi cer at Mobile Hydraulics. “They were active and diligent, always mindful of our timeline, and prodded us forward without acting as though they were the only thing on which our people had to focus. They were very helpful, very effective, and fi nished the job on time and under budget.”
Mobile Hydraulics Equipment Company reports their work with Missouri Enterprise helped them enter a new market and generate $3 million in new sales over the next 12 months.
