Metalflex and Artifex form strategic alliance

19 August, 2016

After a long working relationship, the opportunity recently presented itself for Metalflex and Artifex to join forces in the form of a strategic alliance, offering major benefits to both businesses.

Since its formation in 1999, Metalflex has become one of the UK’s foremost manufacturers of flexible stainless steel and PTFE hose assemblies.

For the past 45 years, Artifex has been well-known throughout the metallic hose industry for its high-quality British manufacturing of flexible metallic hoses. From the beginning, Artifex has been the sole manufacturer of the hoses used in Metalflex’s metallic Powerforce range of assemblies. Metalflex comments that the high quality of both Artifex’s metallic hoses and its service as a whole has been unwavering.

John Milsom, managing director of Metalflex, commented: “The aim of Metalflex was to better secure our current supply chain, allowing us to continue to offer our customers the same high-quality British manufactured hoses they have received from us for the last 17 years.”

Ideally located

Paul Hamilton, managing director of Artifex, added: “It gives us a huge advantage to sell our hose and braid through one of the UK's premier distributors of metallic hose assemblies who are ideally located in the heart of the UK's largest industrial area to sell our high-quality product to its full potential.”

Powerforce is a range of high-performance engineered flexible stainless steel hoses. They are British manufactured and are popular in industries where high quality and full traceability is required such as nuclear and off-shore.

Milsom and Hamilton commented that, with Artifex's manufacturing capability offering the full range of metallic hose from 1/4" - 12", combined with Metalflex's ability to distribute large numbers of metallic hoses in the UK market, it will mean both companies will prosper and grow.

They added that the alliance will mean the two companies can work more closely together, giving customers the confidence to buy metallic hoses manufactured in the UK with the relevant accreditation.
