FAIRLAWN, Ohio—Continental has partnered with Coxreels of Tempe, Ariz., for a new, one-stop-shopping industrial hose package, the companies said late last month.
While Continental will produce the rubber and hybrid air and water hoses made from thermoplastic elastomers, Coxreels will produce its P Series custom reel assembly for the hoses. The hose package is intended for applications in residential garages, hose shops, manufacturing facilities and automotive repair.
"We believe this application is an industry first," said Randy Kish, head of distributor marketing for industrial and hydraulic hoses at Continental. "This will enable our customers to acquire high-quality hoses in a premium package for repetitive applications."
Coxreels said its P Series reel will work with Continental's 3/8-inch, 50-foot hose with 300 psi. The hoses are manufactured at Continental's Mount Pleasant, Iowa, technology center and finished assemblies will be produced at Coxreels' facility in Arizona.
According to Coxreels, the reel has no welds, using a quarter-inch steel base with adjustable hose stops.
The products can be purchased through Continental's normal distribution chain.
