History of Precision Hose & Expansion Joints

The Wright Family has been in the metal hose and expansion joint business since 1956, or 62 years, and is one of the oldest family-owned businesses manufacturing metal hose and metal expansion joints.

  • The family formed flexible metal hose company in 1956 and operated it through 2000 until it was sold to Dormont Manufacturing in 2000.
  • In 1991 Precision Hose was formed to manufacture stripwound hose for the telephone cord industry, fiber optic and off-shore drilling industry.
