DNC Hydraulics Graphic


Celebrating 30 years in service, DNC Hydraulics has grown from a garage operation in rural Rawson, OH to become one of the premier hydraulic component rebuilders in the Midwest.

DNC’s history began in 1991 when Dave Conaway started the company in his two-car garage with the help of his wife, Carolyn. In 1999, Dave and Carolyn built a 2,400 square foot building on their property to expand their operations. By 2011, the business had grown to 10 employees and the Conaways bought the property DNC now occupies on County Road 313. Today, 29 years and nearly 40 employees later, DNC Hydraulics has grown to become an industry leader in the Midwest servicing customers in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

“It’s an American dream come true. I never thought I would be a part of an American dream, but as the years went by, I could see it, this is really happening.”
