Customers are discovering one of the great things about FLEX-ING™ brand FLEX-ON™ hoses from Franklin Fueling Systems is that they can be ordered complete with swivel fittings on one or both ends of the hose. With the hoses coming direct from the factory with integrated swivel fittings, customers don’t have to purchase and install another manufacturer’s hose swivel.
“When you look at the average cost of a FLEX-ON™ hose and the additional cost of adding a competitive hose swivel to the hanging hardware set, you can save around $10 per set for a gas application and even as high as $18 per set on a diesel application,” said Franklin’s Southwestern Regional Sales Manager Keith Hitchcock. “When you multiply those savings by each set of hanging hardware at a site, you can imagine how quick the savings add up.”
Keith has seen distributors across his market start to make the switch to FLEX-ON™ hoses, both hardwall and softwall, and Franklin anticipates the trend to continue to spread across all markets.
“Distributors are not only excited about the integrated swivel fittings and the savings they provide, they also appreciate how extremely versatile this curb hose is,” said Dispensing Systems Product Manager Jeff Strey. “It is fully compatible with gasoline, diesel, Ethanol (up to E85) and Biodiesel both inside and out. It also features an ozone resistant cover that resists fading and cracking. When you consider the elements these hoses have to stand up to, you definitely want to make sure you choose a highly durable curb hose solution.”
