George A. Smida started with a simple idea over 70 years ago. Provide a great product and service to the customer. Over time the business innovated, product lines expanded, and the company reached out to new markets.
in 1946, george a. smida worked with johnny rodgers at rodgers hydraulics in st. louis park, minnesota designing and building prototype hydraulic equipment to power hand chucks for expanding plastic tubes.
2013历史全年开码记录george and his wife louscinda purchased the pump, valve, and tools portion of rodgers hydraulics in 1959 to continue supporting existing customers, while the remainder of the business was sold to victors fluid power in san francisco, california.
in the beginning, george set up an 800 square foot machine shop in the garage at his home to supply parts, offer repair service, and develop innovative hydraulic machine and tool solutions.
the model a-6b air-operated power pump was an early product development, designed as a power source for hand chucks used in expanding, testing, and shaping of tubes for heating, ventilating, and refrigeration coil manufacturing. the air-mo hydraulics inc. company name originated from the early "air" over "motor" system design concept.
