About Penflex

About Us

Founded in 1902, Penflex is a leading manufacturer of corrugated metal hose and braid products. While flexible metal hose was first produced in Europe in the late 1880s, it was not until years later that it was manufactured in the United States – and Penflex was the very first manufacturer of flexible metal hose in America. Penflex Corporation has been a pioneer from the very beginning and continues today to be a global leader in the design and manufacture of flexible metal hose, braid products and expansion joints.

Penflex focuses on a continuous process of improving our manufacturing processes and is dedicated to providing customers with unparalleled value by offering high quality flexible metal hose and braid products, competitive pricing, on-time delivery, superior customer service and cutting-edge industry expertise.

Beyond our product line, the company runs a Welder Training Certification Program to better support customers in the application and use of Penflex products.

In addition to its Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania headquarters, Penflex maintains stocking warehouses in Chicago, Illinois; Atlanta, Georgia; Houston, Texas; and Reno, Nevada.
