I was a service manager for an industrial control systems provider. One of our customers had a problem with a hydraulic system they had designed but could not get to work properly. After coming on site I realized that the hydraulic system would not work in it’s current configuration.

I called Mark and told him how the system was performing and provided the relevant system information. Within 24 hours he designed a new hydraulic configuration and sent me the corresponding hydraulic schematic, with instructions and a sequence of operation.

We provided it to our customer, they implemented his new design, and the problem was solved.

I would definitely recommend using Ascension Hydraulics for any hydraulic training or future Hydraulics projects.

Mark White has been a great resource for my hydraulic applications. He has been  helpful in the design of custom hydraulic motion and control systems.  Mark is both knowledgeable and passionate about hydraulics.

He  is very responsive and always  provides solutions specifically for our application needs.

Ron Geither
Maxcess Project Engineer

Mark and I worked together in the design and manufacturing of mobile construction equipment. As the main hydraulic engineer on our project, Mark provided designs that were optimized with both cost and manufacturability in mind.

With an ambitious outlook, he was able to quickly and accurately troubleshoot any issues that were present in both prototype and production machinery. Mark is a valuable and effective asset that I would recommend to anyone.

Mark was the hydraulics product manager for the capital equipment business I managed.  During that time, he demonstrated the capability to blend theoretical knowledge, engineering practice, and process know-how to deliver the optimal solutions covering linear motion and hydraulic control applications.

Mark is able to execute and deliver across the entire product management spectrum from engineering calculations to product design through prototyping and product launch to serviceability and lifecycle maintenance.

Vice President/General Manager at Overhead Door Corporation

I worked with Mark White for seven years in industrial control systems.  His knowledge of hydraulics and controls was critical to our success.  Mark had years of field service experience which when coupled with his hydraulic technical capability enabled us to provide exceptional and valuable solutions for our customers.

Mark is also a very talented mechanical engineer who designed unique mechanical and hydraulic systems.  By combining his knowledge of customer’s applications, in depth hydraulics understanding and clever mechanical design, Mark created a servo valve system that enabled us to capture a greater market share in the profitable customer base that was predominantly in the metal processing sector.

Mark is a skilled professional and is driven to provide sophisticated hydraulic solutions.

Pultrusion Technology Manager at Anderson Corporation

I asked Mark to design a hydraulic system to aid with tooling in my machine shop. From the start, he asked all the relevant questions about the application and then presented me with different options.

He explained the pros and cons of each potential solution. He understood how important cost was and stressed which solutions would be the most energy efficient. He also explained how each option could be modified to minimize heat rejection.

The system we selected worked exactly how Mark predicted. I would definitely use Ascension Hydraulics for future hydraulic projects.
