The demand for the hydraulic hose is estimated to grow at a substantial rate from the construction industry owing to the requirement of high operating pressure and maximum abrasion resistance to the equipment.
Hydraulic hoses and fittings play a vital role in the fluid power transmission in hydraulic equipment. Construction and mining equipment will continue to be a major growth driver for this segment.
Uniflex has recently started a new plant in Uttarakhand, and plans to start two more plants in the long term. Venkatesh S Aiyer, Director, Uniflex, shares more on the market trends and the company’s plans.
Established in 1987, UNIFLEX today has five manufacturing plants - three belonging to the Hose Products Division and two to the Tube Products Division.
Started manufacturing custom-built hose assemblies in 1976 in Mumbai, UNIFLEX established a 100,000 sq ft modern factory in Bengaluru in 1986 and became self-sufficient in designing, manufacturing and testing a wide range of hose and tube products that meet and exceed international standards.
With four facilities for manufacturing hose assemblies, tube assemblies, hose fittings, adapters and fabricated parts Uniflex looks forward to further modernize and expand its facilities.
