TIPCO Acquires Fluid Power Distributor Hose of South Texas

The acquisition of HOST significantly boosts TIPCO’s fluid conveyance and sealing solutions presence in the Texas markets.

As part of its mission to become the largest independent distributor of fluid conveyance and sealing solutions in the U.S., TIPCO Technologies acquired industrial and hydraulic hose distributor Hose of South Texas (HOST).

The acquisition “significantly boosts” TIPCO’s presence in the Texas markets, further establishing its prominence in the region, company officials said in an April 2 news release.

Hose of South Texas, which has served South Texas and beyond since 1978, will continue to operate under the leadership of Tripp Batey as President.

“What TIPCO is creating is different from anything else in the current landscape of distribution,” Batey said. “Our philosophy extends beyond simply selling hose, we prioritize finding solutions for our customers. This partnership with TIPCO aligns perfectly with our goal. Driven by our dedication to customer satisfaction, we are eager to broaden our product range and pioneer new methods to meet their needs.”

Established in 1888, Owings Mills, MD-based TIPCO provides comprehensive fluid solutions. December 2023 marked a significant milestone as TIPCO expanded nationwide through a merger with HydraTech Industrial Solutions, catapulting its presence to 30 locations spanning 15 states. (Now, 31 locations with the addition of HOST).
