Safety and quality over the entire service life

From the development phase, which features advanced manufacturing techniques, to our after-sales service, we remain committed to safety, quality and durability.
Most of our mechanical components are manufactured in-house. Additional components are exclusively manufactured by internationally reputable vendors. All tripod-jacks are fully OEM approved.

Even in harsh environmental conditions our tripod-jacks perform their maintenance-service reliably. Every single product must prove its quality on the test stand before it is delivered to the customer. All our tripod-jacks, regardless of the capacity, are designed for outstanding robustness and therefore tested with 10% side load ability and 150% proof load.

„I thought I let you know how impressed the Engineers were with the new jacks we received.
The build quality and simplicity of operation made them a joy, in this world of ever increasing complication.
The quick response times of the technical department to queries have been very impressive and support staff are always courteous and responsive.
Overall I have always found Hydro jacks to be best quality, easy to use, and support and training is second to none."

„The EJAL systems has been successfully used on all our fleet including A340, B747, A330, B787 and will be used on our new fleet of A350 thus containing to bring a safe level of efficiency to our jacking operations. The system saves significant number of hours on each jacking and introduces the potential to reduce the numbers of engineers required to compleet the task. The EJAL jacks are safer to operate and in our experience have been 100% reliable.

VAA would highly recommend the EJAL system to any airline or MRO that are looking to invest in a tripod jacking system.“
