They supply the aerospace, military, material handling, construction, and oil and gas industries. In Canada, they own multiple facilities totaling 63,000 sq. ft. and employing upwards of 90 employees.
Despite all that success, Lynch knows, like a great painting, his business is never finished. In 2017, he put his eyes on a new frontier: American expansion.
With the help of Invest Buffalo Niagara, in just a few months, Lynch USA, the U.S. subsidiary company, was born.

In each of their first 10 months, Lynch USA has hit targets, reaching 210% of their goal in June.
Sun Hydraulics announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Faster Group, a leading global manufacturer of quick-release hydraulic couplings headquartered in Milan, Italy. Strategically, this represents an extension of Sun’s current hydraulics product offering and expands our global reach. Faster’s strong engineering and manufacturing presence in Europe and access to trend-setting global OEMs will significantly expand our opportunities in the hydraulics industry.
In addition to its primary manufacturing operations in Milan, Faster manufactures or assembles product in Toledo, Ohio, and Pune, India. The company also has sales offices in China, Brazil and Germany. We welcome Faster to the Sun family.
Sun Hydraulics has launched its new Sun FLeX™ family of competitively priced, high-performance electro-hydraulic products. These 16 completely new solenoid-operated cartridge valves and three new coils are the first products in the FLeX Series Solenoid Valves for both the mobile and industrial hydraulics markets.
Such an exciting new product line! The interchangeability of the FleX line makes it very versatile & cost effective.

Consistently better pressure drop in a virtually leak-proof poppet-style valve
Designed and tested to exceed 10-million-cycle operations
Zinc-nickel plating standard (1000-hour salt fog) on valve and coil

“Our Entrepreneur Of The Year finalists are helping lay the foundation for a better working world”
The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year award is presented to risk takers who set high standards and demonstrate a desire to be successful through overcoming obstacles. “Our Entrepreneur Of The Year finalists are helping lay the foundation for a better working world,” says Colleen McMorrow, National Entrepreneur Of The Year program director. “In North America, their contributions go well beyond the bottom line — they’re job creators.”
The Canadian Minister of International Trade, the Honourable Edward Fast, Member of Parliament for Abbotsford, British Columbia and Brad Butt, the local Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for the Mississauga-Streetsville riding, visited Lynch Headquarters.
“(Lynch is) one of those companies that we, as a government, are so proud of”
Following a meeting with President Ernie Lynch, the company’s CEO/president, the Minister of International Trade was impressed with Lynch’s ability to export its products to over 50 countries. “(Lynch is) one of those companies that we, as a government, are so proud of,” he said, adding that most small to medium-sized enterprises are reluctant to make the leap to international trade. “Canadians are a cautious lot. For us to venture into something new, we need a bit of a nudge.”
Fast said that the government can help Canadian companies trade with international markets by putting in place policy framework agreements, which overcome barriers such as tariffs and red tape. “We want to make sure that when Canadian companies invest all over the world, those investments are secure,” he said. Along with the Minister, Lynch Fluid Controls was host to numerous media representatives including The Canadian Business Journal, South Asian Weekly, Polish, Italian media, as well as Mississauga News.

Mississauga’s Lynch Fluid Controls Inc. has, for a quarter-century, been a North American leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of hydraulic motion control manifolds, and integrated hydraulic systems.
From its cutting-edge, 40,000-square-foot facility at 1799 Argentia Rd., Lynch supplies motion control to industries such as: automotive, aerospace, material handling, mining, logging, industrial, mobile equipment, plastics, medical, and even entertainment – from hit productions like Miss Saigon, the Phantom of the Opera, Cirque de Soleil, to movies like Terminator 2 and Universal Studios’ productions.
This kaleidoscope of business interests comes to a head in April when Lynch celebrates 25 years serving its growing list of customers.
“We sell into 48 countries, and have a goal of one hundred by 2020,” says president and CEO Ernie Lynch.
At present, exports account for approximately 30 per cent of the firm’s total sales, and Lynch is eager to up that to 80 percent by 2020.ISO 9001 and AS9100B certified, the Lynch Group of Companies is divided into Lynch Fluid Controls Inc. (manufacturing and distributing for mobile and industrial markets), and Lynch Dynamics Inc. (design and manufacturing for the aerospace and medical industries).
Lynch’s exclusive distribution arrangement with the Florida-based Sun Hydraulics – a leading designer and maker of high performance screw-in hydraulic cartridge valves, and manifolds – has been the backbone of its manifold manufacturing division. They’ve been able to take valve integration to a new level and are now suppliers to many well-recognized fluid power establishments and OEM’s.
“We’re the master integrator/distributor for Sun Hydraulics Corp,” explains Lynch.
“That’s a huge help, having that relationship with a publicly traded company on NASDAQ. “We’re also a certified manufacturing partner with Sun Hydraulics.”
Lynch provides complete and fully functional manifolds ready for the customer’s application – both from its standard product line, or customised to specifications.
