We stand for 100% quality

Quality prevails

That is our firm conviction. You therefore will not find our hydraulic cylinders to be your least expensive option, but rather, the best and most reliable solution for your application. We want you to be able to rely on our cylinders 100%, and make the right adjustments in many different areas to achieve this goal:

The quality of our cylinders

Anyone wishing to offer innovations has to know what is really important at the core of the matter. That is why we always direct our thinking and our creative potential towards finding solutions that are optimal for the customer, while also breaking new ground. Our top priority here is to continuously improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of our products.

Customers who turn to AHP Merkle can count on a product range that is based on systematic logic and the service that goes with it. This includes in particular our modular design system, which provides wide scope for putting together individual cylinder types, while also facilitating the development of new customer-specific products.


The quality of our production

If you have to answer for the quality of a product, the best approach is to make it yourself – and with the highest possible in-house production depth. We therefore manufacture our hydraulic cylinders exclusively at our headquarters in Gottheim located in the South Baden region of Germany. Here we can rely on a modern machine park which is clearly defined according to DIN ISO 9001 certified processes and our highly motivated, comprehensively trained employees. And, as our customer, you profit threefold: from our outstanding product quality, high flexibility and short delivery times.

The quality of our consulting

We don't just sell you hydraulic cylinders – we offer you custom-fit motion solutions for your applications. For this reason, the members of our Sales and Technology Teams are not classical salespersons, but rather, technically skilled men and women, i.e. 17 experts with a total of more than 200 years of experience in the field of hydraulics.

We are only a phone call away. Every day, our customers make use of the comprehensive consulting and development expertise of our staff, who are in turn driven by a single maxim: '100% Quality'.


The quality of AHP: Compliant with standards and directives

Our clear commitment to quality pays: through long-term, trustful relationships with our customers, through the continuous, measured growth of our company, and above all, because we always can determine that our developments have meanwhile become benchmarks in the various sectors.

Declarations of conformity

We work hand in hand with our suppliers, with most of which we have collaborated for a long time, to ensure compliance with various applicable legal requirements along the supply chain that affect AHP Merkle GmbH. This particularly applies to restrictions or limitations with regard to materials used in the production and distribution of our hydraulic cylinders. In this context, we make our declarations of conformity concerning REACH, RoHS, conflict minerals, and TSCA available here. These declarations are subject to regular review and adaptations as necessary.
