About Us

Thank you for visiting 1ST Choice Hydraulics Ltd.


I’m Daniel Germishuys, Managing Director.


I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, where I completed my three-year mechanical engineering apprenticeship. In 2005, I moved to London and have been living here ever since as a South African British citizen.


Since 2005, I have worked for both international and national companies and completed several industry courses and accreditations relevant to hydraulic engineering. This includes Hydraulic Hose Assembly Systems and Components by City and Guilds accreditation.
