Thank you for visiting 1ST Choice Hydraulics Ltd.


I’m Daniel Germishuys, Managing Director.


A bit about me. I am South African British, born and raised in Cape Town, where I completed my three years apprenticeship in mechanical engineering.  In 2005 I moved to London and have been living here ever since.


Since 2005, I worked for international and national companies and completed several industry courses and accreditations relevant to Hydraulic engineering, including Hydraulic Hose Assembly Systems and Components by City and Guilds accredit.


I have a real passion for hydraulics, and always had the ambition to create my own brand. With the great support of family and friends my dream came true, and on 1st March 2021, 1ST Choice Hydraulics Ltd was launched.
