Organization Consolidation And Presentation Of Financial Statements [Abstract]  


Sun Hydraulics Corporation, doing business as Helios Technologies (“Helios” or the “Company”), and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, is an industrial technology leader that develops and manufactures solutions for both the hydraulics and electronics markets.  On August 6, 2018, the Company announced that it had adopted Helios Technologies as its business name.  Sun Hydraulics, LLC (“Sun Hydraulics” or “Sun”), a newly-formed Florida limited liability company that holds the historical net operating assets of the Sun Hydraulics brand entities and Custom Fluidpower Pty Ltd (“Custom Fluidpower”), along with Enovation Controls, LLC (“Enovation Controls”) and Faster S.r.l. (“Faster”) are the wholly-owned operating subsidiaries of Helios Technologies under the new holding company name.

The Company operates in two business segments, Hydraulics and Electronics.  There are three key technologies within our Hydraulics segment: cartridge valve technology (“CVT”), quick-release hydraulic coupling solutions (“QRC”) and hydraulic system design (“Systems”). Within CVT, our 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. In our Electronics segment, we are a leader in display and control integration solutions offering rugged and reliable instruments, coupled with expertise in J1939 engine protocol, to produce an industry-leading array of easy-to-read displays and gauges for controller area network (“CAN”) transmitted engine data and faults. We refer to this technology as Electronic Controls (“EC”).
