At All-American Hose, we’ve built our reputation on manufacturing industry-leading quality firehose in the United States. It all started in 1969, when Snap-tite formed its Hose Products Division and in 1977, entered into a joint venture with a West German company to manufacture lay-flat hose in Union City, Pennsylvania. Snap-tite is credited with introducing the concept of large diameter hose (LDH) and driving its widespread use throughout North America. Today, virtually every fire department in America uses LDH to move water efficiently.
In 1980, Snap-tite bought out its partner to form Snap-tite Hose, Inc. In 1990, the Company purchased Ponn Hose and in 1995, it acquired National Fire Hose. Snap-tite sold the hose division to All-American Holdings, LLC in June 2010. In April 2016, a group of private investors acquired the assets of All-American Hose, making it one of the largest fire hose manufacturers globally.
Today, All-American Hose remains true to our commitment to engineer and manufacture the industry’s best firehose. Every day our team, 150-strong, works at the Company’s two facilities in Pennsylvania to deliver on that quality promise.
