MANASSAS, Va.—Tipco Technologies Inc. has opened a new distribution hub and hose center to support the company's growth and increased demand from customers.
Calling itself the "Mid-Atlantic's leading fluid solution supplier," Tipco said in a news release that the distribution hub is strategically located in Manassas to serve as a Super Center and to provide logistical support as the company expands into new territories and expands its E-commerce presence.
The center will offer a selection of hydraulic and industrial fluid conveyance products and, should a product need to be ordered, the hub will serve as the company's largest distribution center to support the E-commerce division.
"Our Discovery Manassas location is designed to provide the highest speed to market from a logistics and operational standpoint," Tipco Technologies President Rob Lyons said in a statement. "In addition to enhancing our distribution operations, we also created the ultimate customer experience from a front-end retention perspective.
"We often offer the analogy that our hose centers are designed around a neighborhood hardware store philosophy. Tipco sets out to serve as a one-stop shop that customers go out of their way to experience."
The hub also includes a 4,000-sq.-ft. Eaton Aeroquip hose center. Besides Eaton, Tipco also works with such suppliers as Continental, PT Coupling, Dixon and Kuriyama. It is an Eaton Aeroquip Diamond and Continental Elite distributor.
Tipco operates 11 hose centers and three manufacturing sites throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
