Sun
Hydraulics Corporation
(NASDAQ:SNHY) ("SNHY" or the "Company"), a
global industrial technology leader that develops and manufactures
solutions for both the hydraulics and electronics markets, today
announced the adoption of Helios Technologies as its new business name.
The use of a new name for the parent holding company is in alignment
with the Company's progress toward its Vision 2025 strategy, which is to
achieve global technology leadership in the industrial goods sector by
2025 with critical mass exceeding $1 billion in sales while maintaining
superior profitability and financial strength.

The use of the new name reflects the fact that the Company now has
several operating companies under its umbrella, one of which will remain
Sun Hydraulics. The Sun Hydraulics business has joined the previously
acquired Enovation Controls and Faster Group companies as wholly-owned
subsidiaries of Helios Technologies, under the new holding company
structure. Shares of Helios Technologies will continue to trade on
Nasdaq using the Company's existing ticker symbol, SNHY.

"An integral part of our Vision 2025 is to recognize that the parent
company is evolving and needs to remain independent from its operating
brands," said Helios Technologies' President and Chief Executive
Officer, Wolfgang Dangel. "The new name reflects a progression of the
Company's corporate strategy, which encompasses a solid foundation of
multiple brands committed to becoming a leading designer and
manufacturer of intelligent systems and controls.

"In addition to our organic growth initiatives, a key component of our
Vision 2025 is the smart acquisition of aligned companies to broaden our
end market coverage in both hydraulics and electronics, and eventually
with technologies that link those applications," added Dangel.

Along with the use of a new name, the Company is also launching its new
corporate website and domain at www.heliostechnologies.com.
