AP Hydraulics is a family owned business run by Mark Lewis and his two sons Hamish and Arne.

Mark cut his teeth in the farm machinery industry, originally operating as AP Machinery with the Agco franchise for Gisborne. More recently Mark has been Dealer Principle for Power Farming Gisborne and Hawkes Bay. In 2009, locally based Hydraulics Ltd was added to the business. AP Machinery became AP Hydraulics in 2012 after selling the machinery division to Power Farming.
