About Us

Ray Jones, Founder HTL (Hire Torque Ltd) -1996

Hire Torque Ltd was founded by Ray Jones in 1996 and is based in Northumberland, UK, an area which still to this day has a rich heritage of controlled bolting equipment suppliers. Ray's career started in the very early days with Hedley Purvis Ltd (now Enerpac), progressing to Hytorc and then onto HTL. After shared success and pioneering with a number of major bolting companies, Ray’s focus moved to his own company ‘HTL’ which he drove forward with a very simple strategy, "Customer Service is our number 1 priority, 24 hours a day, every day." HTL continues to serve its customers with an even wider range of products and services and enjoys very dynamic growth under Ray’s guidance and operates today, globally, as HTL Group. Ray and the entire HTL team extend their thanks to customers past, present and future and we would like to invite you to join us celebrating our 20 year anniversary in 2016.
