Fast fluid power
The independant hydraulics supplier for South Wales
On 1st December 2002, Leigh Haslett opened Fast Fluid Power's first trade counter in Raglan, Monmouthshire. Primerily a one man operation, opening 7 days a week for the local agricultural community providing hydraulic hoses, valves, filtration products and lubricants.
Over the years, the support The Fast brand has gained from the local agricultural, industrial and plant community has enabled us as a group to grow into South Wales' largest hydraulic hose & associated products supply companies. With the Fast Fluid Power agricultural, plant & industrial supply company, FlexSol on-site hydraulics division, Fast Lubricants and Fast Engineering divisions, we are now the first and only phone call in South Wales for service and supply.
We have branched out by listening to our customers feedback to take our expertise into relative sectors to give us a total supply solution. With over 20 staff, we are continuing to expand throughout South Wales with further expansion of both Fast & FlexSol in the Bridgend & Swansea area by 2019.

Re-branded in 2018 to FlexSol - 24/7 Flexible Solutions, FlexSol have now grown to be South East Wales’ largest mobile hydraulic hose company.
