Most small businesses are created out of need. This is certainly the case for Specialty Hose Express as founder Eric Plagenza felt something was missing from the Community: A farming and Industrial processing place where local businesses could go to get hoses to quickly solve problems and resume operations with little or no downtime. Aided by 30 years of experience in supplying processors with industrial products (hoses, bearings, filters, etc.) and a passion to help customers solve problems, Specialty Hose Express has filled this community need and experienced substantial growth since its founding in 2016. This growth has made it more than a hose shop but a place where customers can go to get knowledgeable service expertise and the critical equipment needed to keep their operations running.
