What the business does: Northwest Tubes N' Hoses helps customers design hoses and fluid lines for a variety of automotive, industrial and heavy-equipment applications. Jason Turner, lead technician, said his company can duplicate virtually any tube or hose, metric or standard measurement. The company builds replacement hydraulic hoses and hydraulic tube assemblies; creates customized plumbing for hot rod and custom cars; and supplies businesses with inventory such as DOT brass fittings, hydraulic hose and hose ends, and hydraulic adapters.
Steps to building your business: The hose company is currently building a new website with the ability for customers to view products and place orders online. Turner also said the company has created new brochures/product-line cards that clearly display their products and services.
Greatest challenge in running your business: Turner said the greatest challenge is finding new loyal customers to expand their client base. The company continually works with suppliers to remain competitively priced while still providing quality products.
What's ahead: Tubes N' Hoses hopes its new website will reach a larger, broader client base. Its goal is to serve customers nationally and it will soon hire another technician/outside salesperson.
