History

Rob’s Hydraulics is a family owned and operated business based out of Grimesland, NC, just a few miles outside of Greenville.  In 1998 Rob and two other guys began rebuilding cylinders in a school gymnasium.  In just a short time Rob built a full time mechanic and fabrication shop.  Priding himself on customer service and top notch quality work Rob decided to begin selling construction equipment and became a dealer for Hyundai Construction equipment, selling and renting excavators and loaders.
