Welcome from Rick & Patti Peterson, founders and owners.

My wife Patti and I have built a sterling business reputation through a lifetime commitment to innovation, quality and customer service. My welding shop, founded at Lake Benton, Minnesota in 1988, introduced the world’s first production range of hydraulic doors in 1992.

Our patented HydAway door and wall designs, with hydraulic components fully concealed when closed, are state-of-the-art access solutions for any residential and commercial application.

We understand it’s simply not possible to provide personalized manufacturing, delivery, installation, and support across a continent from just one manufacturing site. We have built solid relationships with professional HydAway fabricators who share our customer-centered ideals. Instead of a single production facility, HydAway has manufacturing and service locations across North America.

Our business model is unique in the industry. It offers single source accountability, since every phase of your project is completed locally. Our professional wall and door design capability is a part of every new or retrofit HydAway project we’re involved in.

Rick and Patti Peterson.
