President | Delta Hydraulics & Service Inc
Phillip Alexander began his career in hydraulics at the young age of 18 when he enlisted in the United States Army. His mechanical ability secured him a position as a helicopter crew chief in the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam for 18 months maintaining and repairing helicopters while performing flight missions. From Vietnam he was transferred to a medivac unit in Schweinfurt, Germany where he continued maintaining the fleet and performing medivac missions. Phillip’s return to civilian life led him to a career with an oilfield manufacturing company maintaining and repairing machinery used for manufacturing equipment until the oilfield market crashed in the 1980’s. The job market was bleak when Phillip decided to start his own business repairing and renting hydraulic equipment.
He developed a good reputation in a small town increasing the business to several employees. His two sons enjoyed hanging out at the shop taking things apart and putting them back together learning the skills of the hydraulic trade hanging out with Dad. An opportunity arose for the start of a hydraulic business in the Houston area and Phillip took the risk. His son Jeffrey decided to join him in the adventure and Delta Hydraulics & Service Inc was formed in 2009 on Almeda Genoa Road, Houston, Texas. It didn’t take long to outgrow the small shop, so the business moved to 8421 Industrial Drive, Pearland, Texas which is its current location.
Phillip enjoys deer and dove hunting while seeing and visiting his native state of Texas. He loves his state and the United States of America which he served actively for 4 years in the army during the Vietnam War. His dream has been to own land in the wide regions of West Texas where the jack rabbit and deer roam in John Wayne territory.
