PARTNERING TO PROVIDE SOLUTIONS

Teknor Apex has been developing new technologies and innovations that change the marketplace since 1924. Our consumer lines of garden and industrial hoses have been so groundbreaking because, at our core, we are a diversified material science company.

World-Class Compound Facililty

Having world-class custom compound divisions separate Teknor Apex's hose products from much of the competition. We are able to develop innovative patented technologies, but at the same time, we never lose sight of the consumer experience. Our leadership status in the marketplace is constantly being strengthened by our comprehensive product research, new product development and our ability to meet the demands of today’s discriminating consumer.

Teknor Apex was the first US manufacturer to launch a kink-proof hose, which featured a patented technology called NTS (Non-Torsion System). The translucent strip that runs the length of every hose reveals the Neverkink secret which solves the #1 consumer complaint: Kinking.

This Neverkink line offers benefits guaranteed unconditionally – producing a hose that is easy to maneuver so kinks, twists and tangles don’t have a chance to get started.

The patented triple frame technology features three raised support frames that help prevent the collapsing that causes kinks.  A hose that will provide increased flexibility and reinforced for high burst strength. This heavy duty hose offers maximum strength and durability with raised touch points to give you better control and handling.

In 2013 we focused on partnering with local nursery and industrial sites to review water hose use and pain points experienced.  This lead to the development and launch of Flexalloy, a PVC based elastomer compound formulated to extend the performance of standard vinyl water hoses. With improved toughness, yet extremely flexible, this hose has high burst strength and is abrasion resistant. This hose offers extreme performance to meet the most demanding requirements, guaranteed.
