Hydra-Electric Company 70th Anniversary Celebration

The amazing employees of Hydra-Electric gathered on Friday, August 24 to celebrate our 70th Anniversary in style. The festivities took place at the Los Angeles Burbank Airport Marriott, where the members of Team Hydra feasted on a delicious lunch buffet while enjoying the Caribbean sounds of steel drum music.

One of the great results of this event is that we were able to get a company photograph. Employees and executives alike sported their black polo shirt with our special 70th Anniversary logo. Don’t we look fantastic?

The spirit of innovation is something that has defined Hydra-Electric since its early beginnings in 1948, when Allen Davis invented a revolutionary new design for pressure switches and started the company. This passion for invention lives on today as our our engineers continue to find new solutions to the evolving needs of our customers.
