Goodyear to expand hydraulic hose business

Goodyear Engineered Products will become a full-line provider of hydraulic hose, fittings, and crimpers in North America in 2004. The firm will stock a range of hydraulic hose classifications, from R1 though R17, with 3/16" to 2" inside diameters, that primarily conform to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and European Norm (EN) standards.

The company will target maintenance and repair operations for industries such as mining, construction, manufacturing and steel, and will also supply industrial and transportation original equipment manufacturers.

Goodyear will expand into the hydraulics market through a strategic alliance with Italy's Alfa Gomma SpA, a leader in the hydraulic hose and fitting industry for more than 25 years.
