“Over the years I have given Hose Doctor “difficult fixes” and they have, one way or another, come up with a solution to get me back up and running.

Thomas Byrne – Bus Eireann.


Hose Doctor was established in 1995 by Michael Cranston, who had the vision of rapid solutions for on-site hydraulic hose repairs. The goal – to keep downtime to a minimum while maximising productivity for their clients. Back then the company consisted of two service vans that focused solely on the construction industry in Dublin.

By 1998 the fleet was up to five Dublin-based vans and a new branch in Cork was opened.

Then by 2003 Hose Doctor had bought its first warehouse, its first trade counter and had also opened up branches in Waterford and Limerick.

As with most businesses, the recession years from 2007 posed some obstacles for Hose Doctor. We had to cut-back on our regional operations to focus solely on the Dublin branch, but during this time we also began exploring new industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical, renewable energy, among others.

And Now

Today, we now have a team of twenty-six staff, as well as twelve fully mobile workshops, equipped with all of the modern technology needed to service any issue our clients face.

We pride ourselves in stellar customer service, giving our clients 24/7 emergency breakdown assistance. In recent years our average response time from initial phone call to arriving on site has been under sixty minutes.
