#IDCO Success Stories: Flexaust + McGill Hose & Coupling


Great relationships are grounded in mutual respect and trust. And, that is exactly what Endorsed IDCO 1st Supplier Flexaust and IDCO member McGill Hose & Coupling have built their business partnership on.

Flexaust has been a long-term supplier to McGill, particularly through the firm’s Amesbury, MA, location.  Having a local manufacturing facility near McGill’s headquarters in East Longmeadow, MA has been a significant benefit for the IDCO member because Flexaust has been able to provide on-site technical support for McGill’s outside sales force and customers over the years. Together, they have been able to solve a number of ducting problems for McGill’s customers, including hi-temperature applications, transferring abrasives and venting chemical fumes. In addition, Flexaust provides everyday products to McGill that are used in lawn care by homeowners and small and large contractors, which are common in the region. (more…)
