About Us

We deliver site specific training both online and onsite to companies who want to offer continued personal development for their site engineers. Our in-depth personal training can be completed online at any time through our course portal, live at one of our online training webinars or onsite in person, our programmes form a solid base for engineering staff to work from, when dealing with maintenance and fault location of their system at their place of work.

This flexible approach to our course delivery means that you can further equip staff with the additional skills and knowledge that will have a significant impact on reducing breakdowns and production downtime and improving system performance for your business.

Our flagship course covers just some of the following key’s areas:

  • The basic principles upon which all hydraulic and pneumatics systems are based.
  • The ability to read a hydraulic and pneumatic circuit diagram and to be able to identify key components within the system.
  • Understand the operation and functions of components within the system.
  • Undertake basic routine maintenance and monitor the performance of the system to identify potential problems and faults which could cause a failure of a component and the system become inoperative.
  • To quickly identify a fault within the system, rectify the problem, and make decisions which would prevent the fault reoccurring.


The company was originally founded back in 1989 to service the coal and mining industry providing services such as the overhaul of hydraulic equipment such as pumps, motors, valves and cylinders used on underground mining machinery. This expanded into the cement markets with the business continuing to develop the onsite services including design, manufacture, and maintenance for more than 25 years.

Founder of the business Greg Elliott has over 50 years of experience in the industry which began in mining, at this time he won several awards which included being awarded the Silver medal for the top award in the City and Guilds Technicians Certificate and the William Maurice Memorial prize for providing the best examination results, in the country, for AMEME honours, which enabled him to be a mining mechanical engineer.

Greg has also worked as an academic lecturer which shines through in his delivery of the training programmes available. With over 30 years of hands-on experience the business has worked on virtually every hydraulic system, within various sites, for Hanson Cement, Cemex (formerly Rugby Cement), Tarmac, and Lafarge Cement, (formerly Blue Circle Industries). This includes services from the design, installation, and maintenance for the systems.

G. Elliott Hydraulic and Mechanical Engineering Ltd are totally committed to all aspects concerning to health and safety and environmental protection.
