OEM Solution Centers and Hydraulic Hose Assemblies

A key advantage our customers have is working with a large manufacturer who owns the entire manufacturing process from start to finish, and is able to support it with experienced technical design engineers. Another advantage is our capability with the breadth of hydraulic solutions we deliver every single day. This includes our OEM Solution Centers and hydraulic hose assemblies as part of our customer centered products and services.
Located in Livonia, Michigan and Charlotte, North Carolina, our OEM Solution Centers serve under the Hydra-Flex Hose and Fittings Solutions Centers name.

Whether you’re looking for hose fittings, hose assemblies, or hydraulic line hose ends, we have what you need. Can’t find exactly what you are looking for? Don’t worry, our technical engineering team can easily customize any part to find a quality solution to your hydraulic fitting issue.
We offer complete hydraulic assemblies to some of the most recognized OEMs in the world. That didn’t happen overnight and is a result of the many years of combined experience between Air-Way and Manuli in manufacturing hydraulic hose and adapter products that meet the rigorous demands of our global OEM customer partners.
What Straight Threads Do I Need?Threads are complex, and these simple designation techniques are just the tip of the iceberg. Keep in mind, these procedures should only be used to identify a thread, not for thread inspection. However, following these simple guidelines will get you on the right track to identifying the threads you already have or need.
