Eaton launches Industrial Hose Unit
Apr 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Eaton Corporation has announced the formation of a new Eaton Industrial Hose Unit to enhance the firm's presence in the industrial rubber and thermoplastic hose markets.
“Industrial hose has been part of Eaton's fluid conveyance product line for many years,” said Eaton Vice President of Fluid Conveyance Jeff Finch, “but our customers want a more focused approach and we have responded with the creation of the Industrial Hose Unit.
The Industrial Hose Unit is supported by inside sales people in Cleveland TN, the primary distribution location for industrial hose, said business unit manager Joe Mika. “They have extensive hose experience,” he said. “They are supported by additional product experts in Guelph, Ontario, dedicated product sales managers tasked with helping Eaton regional and local sales managers service the Industrial Hose market, and dedicated product and market development personnel.”
Technical support for Industrial Hose Solutions is provided by the Eaton Fluid Conveyance team in Maumee OH.
The Eaton Industrial Hose Unit will handle the full range of products currently part of the Fluid Conveyance industrial line, plus the recently acquired hose products from Arrow and Durodyne. Many of these products will be rebranded as Eaton Industrial Hose. Those with strong identities, including certain Boston brand products, will continue to carry existing product identifiers.
