"McGill Hose has always been focused on being a solution-based hose fabricator and supplier, and that is why this move is so important to us," said Alex McGill, McGill Hose & Coupling's vice president. "We base our decisions on forward-thinking, customer-focused analytics and experiences. By increasing our fabrication capabilities, in not only square footage and equipment, but also personnel, we are now better positioned to serve our current customers as well as new markets."
He said the new facility will allow for more inventory capacity, improved retail space and, most importantly, additional fabrication space to be able to accommodate the increased demand from customers, particularly for custom hose and fittings.
In conjunction with the move, McGill Hose has partnered with a local trade school, Lincoln Tech in East Windsor, Conn., to offer one-on-one tours and job expectation interviews to enhance employment opportunities for newly graduated welding students. The firm recently hired two graduates from the program.
McGill Hose & Coupling also serves customers at two other locations, in Woburn, Mass., and East Providence, R.I.
The family-owned distributor was founded in 1962. It specializes in high quality products and custom hose and fitting solutions, serving many industries, including: industrial/mechanical, food/beverage, pharmaceutical, fuel transport/transfer and refinery, government, municipal, aerospace and OEM sectors.
