Formed in 2000, Hose Connections Inc. started off as just a small hose shop. Today, Hose Connections is becoming the premier leader in the hydraulics industry with locations in Hammond, IN and Michigan City, IN as well as a fleet of mobile hose shops providing RYCO 24•7 onsite hose replacement in the region. “We are a one-stop-shop offering quality hydraulic and pneumatic products and services. At Hose Connections we take pride in the fact that we not only meet, but exceed our customers’ expectations,” says owner Ray Dills. “The RYCO 24•7 program was a natural fit for us as our customers started asking for an on-site solution for costly equipment downtime resulting from a failed hydraulic hose.”
Hose Connections Inc., in conjunction with the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) and RYCO 24•7, is also committed to having the most knowledgeable staff in the greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana area. “I recently had the pleasure of working with some of the Hose Connection team members to support them in becoming IFPS Connector and Conductor Certified,” said Gwyn O’Kane, Business Development Manager for RYCO 24•7. “IFPS C&C Certification requires passing a 3-hour written test as well as a 3-hour practical test and provides an objective, third party assessment of an individual’s technical skill level. It is proof to our customers that certified RYCO 24•7 operators are professionals within the fluid power industry.”
