"Over time we realized that many of the attributes of this small but very well adapted bird are actually traits that we admire as a fluid power innovator."
Flying Harlequin Duck

Nature's answer to fluid dynamics….we have great respect for a 600 gram bird that can walk against the current at the bottom of a frigid, swift moving mountain stream…. Why is Lynch Fluid Controls so attracted to the Harlequin duck?

Doesn't it seem like an odd thing for a fluid power company to have as its mascot and logo?

A few years ago Ernie Lynch saw a film on TV about the Harlequin. He was very impressed with the bird and made a mental note of it. Over time we realized that many of the attributes of this small but very well adapted bird are actually traits that we admire as a fluid power innovator.

When we say small, we mean small. The male checks in at 700 grams (22 ounces) and the female at 600 grams (19 ounces). They are known by many names, "sea mice and squeakers" because of their mouse-like call, and also as "rock ducks, lords and ladies, ladybirds, white-eyed divers, painted ducks and totem-pole ducks."

The colorful Harlequin is one of the most attractive sea ducks and gets its English name from the characters in an Italian comedy that wear a mask and have oddly painted costumes.

This little bird is impervious to salt water, and can be found wintering on the rocky coasts of North America, although it is regarded as an endangered species on the east coast. It takes food by diving into the foaming surf, and must work hard to survive due to its small body mass.

In Summer and shoulder seasons this amazing bird migrates to breed in the mountain streams of Alaska, Yukon , British Columbia, Alberta, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Washington.

This is where the Harlequin really demonstrates how well it has adapted to the environment. The bird dives to the bottom and walks against the current, prying at rocks and substrate in search of larvae of flying insects such as blackflies, caddis flies, stone flies and midges. As far as we can see, this bird adds new meaning to the term "good flow characteristics".


Quality at Lynch is not just a requirement, it’s part of our culture. It's what we do on a day to day basis in order to deliver a world class product. For three decades, Lynch Fluid Controls Inc. and its Lynch Dynamics Inc. division have taken pride in maintaining rigorous quality accreditations.

AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Our ISO9001:2015 and AS9100D Quality Management System Certification exemplifies our commitment to deliver superior products with unsurpassed attention to quality, safety, and reliability.

ISO 9001:2015 was developed by the International Organization for Standardization and promotes the adoption of a process approach when developing, implementing and improving the effectiveness of a quality management system. The standard necessitates a high level of management responsibility and commitment, and specifies requirements for processes such as, design and development, purchasing, production and service, monitoring and measurements, and ultimately delivery of products to customers.

AS9100D, established by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), include the ISO 9001:2015 standard, but also contains over 75 additional requirements designed to meet the stringent, complex and unique demands of defense and commercial aerospace industries. Certification requires more rigorous auditing and periodic surveillance performed by accredited registrars.


Controlled Goods Certification

The Controlled Goods Program entitles the certified company or person to "examine, possess or transfer controlled goods in accordance with the Defense Production Act and the Controlled Goods Regulations. Lynch is certified by Public Works Canada under the CGP.

Lynch takes pride in being a supporter of youth engagement in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). Over the span of the past decade, Lynch employees have volunteered their time in support of the Fluid Power Challenge, a partnership of the Canadian Fluid Power Association and Toronto District School Board. During the annually held CFPA Challenge, 19 Toronto middle schools fielded student teams of 4 to design and build fluid-power mechanisms.
The Challenge is intended to provide students with hands-on building experience with real world applicability and to open their eyes to the world of technology careers and, in particular, careers in fluid power.
We are also a proud supporter of the Learning Partnership, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing together business, education, labour, policy makers and the community to develop partnerships that strengthen public education in Canada. Each year, we in participate in Take Our Class to Work Day. Highlights of the event include a tour of our automated facility, engaging experiences with our employees and a workshop on entrepreneurship strategies and goal setting with our President .
