Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have been experiencing longer than usual delays and increased lead times when importing hoses and fittings into Australia from overseas.
As a result, it’s not surprising that there’s been a shift towards buying locally manufactured hoses and fittings, instead of relying on cheaper goods manufactured overseas. Companies are choosing to buy locally supplied products that are delivered on time, without the added logistical complications of importation.

Why buy Australian made hoses and fittings?

2. Improved lead times and reduced costs
Importing hoses and fittings from overseas can be a timely and expensive process, especially in the current climate.

All our Australian made products are 100% tested and inspected by a dedicated quality control team here in Australia. This ensures our clients receive the highest quality hoses and fittings that meet all Australian certification standards.
For that extra peace of mind, Pacific Hoseflex offers a hose management system to trace and maintain all the products we supply, which can be customised to suit your needs.
5. No minimum order quantity
When you order products overseas there is often a minimum order quantity (MOQ), but with Pacific Hoseflex there’s no minimum order. Whether your order is big or small, we’re here to help.
With Pacific Hoseflex there’s no minimum order.
Purchasing smaller quantities will free up cashflow that would otherwise be tied up with increased stock holdings due to MOQ.
6. Buy in AUD
Overseas pricing can be greatly influenced by currency fluctuations and a weak Australian dollar. Buying products in AUD minimises the influence the foreign exchange rate has on your purchases and could save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
