Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  


Helios Technologies, Inc. (“Helios,” the “Company", "we", "us" or "our”) and its wholly owned subsidiaries, is a global leader in highly engineered motion control and electronic controls technology for diverse end markets, including construction, material handling, agriculture, energy, recreational vehicles, marine and health and wellness. Helios sells its products to customers in over 90 countries around the world. The Company’s strategy for growth is to be the leading provider in niche markets, with premier products and solutions through innovative product development and acquisitions.

The Company operates in two business segments: Hydraulics and Electronics. There are two key technologies within the Hydraulics segment: motion control technology (MCT) and fluid conveyance technology (FCT). Our MCT products provide simultaneous control of acceleration, velocity and position. MCT includes our cartridge valve technology (CVT) where we pioneered a fundamentally different design platform employing a floating nose construction that results in a self-alignment characteristic. This design provides better performance and reliability advantages compared with most competitors’ product offerings. Our cartridge valves are offered in several size ranges and include both electrically actuated and hydro-mechanical products. They are designed to be able to operate reliably at higher pressures than most competitors, making them equally suitable for both industrial and mobile applications. Our FCT products transfer hydraulic fluid from one point to another. FCT includes our quick release couplings (QRC) products, which allow users to connect and disconnect quickly from any hydraulic circuit without leakage and ensure high-performance under high temperature and pressure using one or multiple couplers. The Electronics segment provides complete, fully-tailored display and control solutions for engines, engine-driven equipment, specialty vehicles, therapy baths and traditional and swim spas. This broad range of products is complemented by extensive application expertise and unparalleled depth of software, embedded programming, hardware and sustaining engineering teams.
