Welcome from Rick & Patti Peterson, founders and owners.

welcome from Rick Peterson, founder of HydAway.

My wife Patti and I built our sterling business reputation by a lifetime commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. I started my welding shop in Lake Benton, Minnesota in 1988 and began producing a wide range of hydraulic doors in 1992. Our patented HydAway door and wall designs, with their concealed hydraulic components when closed, are state-of-the-art access solutions for any residential or commercial application.

We learned years ago that it’s impossible to offer custom manufacturing with personalized delivery, installation, and support over an entire continent from just one manufacturing location. We have developed relationships with professional HydAway fabricators who share our customer-centered ideals. Instead of a single production facility, HydAway has 24 manufacturing and service centers across North America.

This unique business model offers single source accountability with every phase of your project based locally. You will appreciate our unmatched professional design capability, which is an integral part of every new or retrofit HydAway project.

Rick and Patti Peterson.
