Most legacy Hydromat machines are still in service in some capacity, so the marketplace is always in need of rebuild and retool services. Hydromat Inc. and Motch & Eichele Co. have created a third entity, Hydromat-RE Inc., which will specialize in the refurbishing, retooling and selling of legacy Hydromat rotary transfer machines.

Legacy-type machines are the original hydraulically controlled machines that Hydromat Inc. started to import into the U.S. during the 1970s.

Hydromat-RE will provide everything from used or reconditioned parts, all equipment needed for a manufacturer’s retool and full rebuild turnkey machines for selected projects. Brokering of used machine sales will also be a service Hydromat-RE staff members will offer. “We believe that Hydromat-RE has the potential to bring a new spirit to the Legacy machine business,” says Bruno Schmitter, president and CEO, Hydromat Inc. “This team has all the experience and knowledge to make a positive impact within the marketplace.”

Willie Eichele, an experienced business leader with over 30 years of experience in the rotary transfer industry, has been appointed as Hydromat-RE’s president. "I'm very excited about the possibilities that we can realize through our new Legacy rotary transfer company," Mr. Eichele says. “We aim to develop novel approaches and technologies at our one-stop shop to help improve the solutions our customers require

One goal of Hydromat-RE is to develop new technologies in partnership with Hydromat Inc. and Motch & Eichele to advance the legacy machine user’s capabilities. With products such as the Epic RS & Epic SS packages, Hydromat-RE will add CNC technology to existing Legacy machines. “My goals and objectives all revolve around finding new ways to increase our customer’s competitiveness by supplying them quality Hydromat legacy machines and related services,” Mr. Eichele says.

Hydromat-RE’s location has been established in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, home of the Motch & Eichele Co.
