Eaton Forms Industrial Hose Unit

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corp., Eden Prairie, MN, has formed a new Eaton Industrial Hose Unit to boost the company'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."
Finch said that industrial hose customers have different expectations than hydraulic hose customers. "While hydraulic hose and accessories tend to be ordered for stock, by specific part numbers, industrial hose tends to be ordered by need and by specific application or size. This requires a different kind of operator on our end to make sure customers get what they need."
