In 1999 after over 20 years in the industrial hose market in Minnesota, Roy Vance wanted to start his own nationwide business and do it right. Roy was very fortunate to have loyal customers and vendors that encouraged him on this new adventure. Right from the start Roy’s unofficial motto has been to be the best vendor to the customer, be the best customer to our vendor and to offer a comfortable and safe working environment for our employees. This philosophy has proven well for Engineered Flexible Products, Inc.
For over 20 years we have been supported by great customers, vendors and employees which has led to a rapid growth in business, a strong financial position, and a reputation second to none in the hose and expansion joint markets.
