Hose Master plans to open an advanced manufacturing plant that fabricates flexible, metal hoses in Northern Nevada with plans to be operational by April and bring up to 30 jobs to Sparks, Nevada.
The company manufactures and fabricates custom, high quality, hose assemblies and expansion joints that are used in a variety of applications. The company originally opened its doors in 1982 and was the first hose company in the United States to be ISO certified. The company has additional manufacturing sites in Cleveland, Ohio, Houston, Texas and Atlanta , Georgia. Hose Master's success has come from its unique ability to create custom products specifically designed for each application, and deliver them quickly. Opening a plant in Northern Nevada is an important step in this strategy.
Anthony Foti, the firm’s Executive Vice President said, "The new Sparks plan allows us to be strategically located to better meet the demand of our West Coast customers and help us to grow our business. Lower operating costs and a business-friendly environment were also key factors in our decision to move to Northern Nevada."
Hose Masters's expansion in the Reno-Sparks market is exciting and a confirmation that this region is a great place for business. It is Important to attract national companies like Hose Master as they grow, because they add to the diversification of the region and support the growing realization across the country that Reno-Sparks is the advanced manufacturing hub of the West, officials from the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada reported.
