About HTL Group

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 the 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, putting customer service as the number 1 priority for the business, 24 hours a day, every day. It’s a tradition that continues to this day as HTL serves its customers with an even wider range of products and services.

Operating 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 visit us at our Corporate HQ.
