Organization Consolidation And Presentation Of Financial Statements [Abstract]  


Helios Technologies, Inc. (“Helios,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”), together with its wholly-owned subsidiaries, is an industrial technology leader that develops and manufactures solutions for both the hydraulics and electronics markets.  Sun Hydraulics, LLC (“Sun Hydraulics” or “Sun”), Enovation Controls, LLC (“Enovation Controls”), Faster S.r.l. (“Faster”) and Custom Fluidpower Pty Ltd (“Custom Fluidpower”), are the wholly-owned operating subsidiaries of Helios.

The Company operates in two business segments: Hydraulics and Electronics. There are three key technologies within the Hydraulics segment: cartridge valve technology (“CVT”), quick-release hydraulic coupling solutions (“QRC”) and hydraulic system design (“Systems”). CVT products provide functions important to a hydraulic system: to control rates and direction of fluid flow and to regulate and control pressures. QRC products 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. Systems provide engineered solutions for machine users, manufacturers or designers to fulfill complete system design requirements including electro-hydraulic, remote control, electronic control and programmable logic controller systems, as well as automation of existing equipment. The Electronics segment provides complete, fully-tailored display and control solutions for engines, engine-driven equipment and specialty vehicles. This broad range of products is complemented by extensive application expertise and unparalleled depth of software, embedded programming, hardware and sustaining engineering teams. This technology is referred to as Electronic Controls (“EC”).
