Our Team

Our Columbus, Ohio headquarters alone houses a specially trained team of experts with a combined experience of over 200 years of hydraulic and industrial knowledge. And, each member of our team is dedicated to bringing you the very best in service, support, and product knowledge.

Our Services

For over 50 years, Mid-State has offered the very best in hose assembly, tube assembly, and hydraulic adapter value. As a fabricator and distributor of fluid transfer products, we cater to OEM and industrial customers alike, and can provide a complete package of design, engineering, and quality services along with the products you need to meet your unique requirements.

Capabilities

Whether you’re in the market for a few hoses, or a few thousand, we have you covered. With three production facilities, a veteran staff of experts, and over 75,000 sq. ft of inventory, we can ensure you receive the high quality assemblies you need in time to get the job done.

Selection

Our massive selection of hydraulic, industrial, air, water, general purpose, thermoplastic, Teflon, and stainless steel braided hoses means you can fully customize your order to suit any application. Plus, our dedicated team of industry professionals can even assist with product selection, routing, design, and more.

Delivery

Speedy delivery, customized packaging, and a wide variety of freight options are just a few of the benefits available to our customers. Our massive inventory allows us to fill most high-volume product orders in two weeks or less. Only need a few assemblies? Most orders of 10 or less can ship same or next day, depending on availability and time of order.

Capabilities

When it comes to producing formed-products, we have all the bases covered. Bending, flaring, brazing, welding, painting, plating, powder-coating, leak-detection, CMM inspection...should we keep going? Whether you need to outfit a refuse truck, fit up a cylinder, or make a custom hose-end fitting, Mid-State has the tools to get the job done in a timely fashion.

Selection

A wide variety of carbon & stainless steel, DOM, and structural tubing allows us to cater to most hydraulic and industrial applications with ease. With the same protection, labeling, and fully-customized packaging options as our hose assembly products, you can rest soundly knowing your order is in the hands of hydraulic experts. You can even combine your tube assemblies with hose and fittings, adapters, or whatever else you'd like, all in one convenient package.

Delivery

Tired of waiting 12+ weeks for your order? Let Mid-State be your new go-to. With one of the fastest leads times in the industry, we can typically provide your tube assemblies in less than 6 weeks from time of order. We also offer prototyping and expediting options, and our quantity-break pricing structure ensures you save even more on our already great prices.

Design

Regardless if you're designing equipment from scratch or up-fitting an existing piece, we have the capabilities to assist with everything from the product selection phase, to design, engineering, routing, and even installation. With a full-range of software packages and product experts, we can help produce 3D models, prints, drawings, and save you time and money in the process.

application

At Mid-State, we want to ensure you always have the right product for the job. When our experts assess your current or future design, we closely examine every aspect of the product specification, including pressure ratings and circumstance, temperature, environment, bend radius, abrasion, cleanliness, mounting, and protection, as well as dozens of other aspects. Because of this unique approach to doing business, we can typically improve the performance of your equipment and increase the life expectancy of your system, while saving money in the process.

routing

One of the most important aspects of product design, the proper routing of your hose or tube assemblies can mean the difference between successful performance and catastrophic failure. Understanding the costs of unexpected downtime, our team of experts is dedicated to ensuring your assemblies are built and designed to stand the test of time.

testing

Quality is in our DNA, and therefore we perform a wide range of testing on the assemblies produced in our facilities. Impulse pressure frequency, hydro-static pressure, proof, and burst testing, leak detection, cleanliness, and particle counting are the most common forms practiced internally, and are also available as outside services for your products upon request.

metrics

As an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, quality procedures are a part of every operation performed in our facility. Not only do we rigorously inspect each process of assembly fabrication, but we constantly track our on-time-delivery, defects per million, cost of quality, and several other factors. As a distributor, we hold our suppliers to the same standards we've set for ourselves. Each supplier is closely monitored and graded on a monthly basis to ensure they meet our standards for quality goods.

missioN

Per our quality policy, no employee can come aboard the Mid-State team without adopting our culture of "doing things things the right way." Our customers expect excellence, and therefore we strive to deliver our products and services 100% correct, on-time, all of the time.

kitting

As your one-stop-shop for all things hydraulic, Mid-State can package your adapters, hose assemblies, tube assemblies, and other hydraulic components in one convenient package, or however else you'd like it. With a focus on bulk and individual kits for our OEM customers, we have years of experience custom-tailoring our products to met a wide variety of demands and requests. Contact our team today to learn more details regarding our capabilities.

protection

If you've worked in the hydraulics industry, you've probably heard the phrase "abrasion is the number one cause of hose failure." From firsthand experience we agree, and therefore offer a bevy of protection options such as abrasion resistant sleeves and guards. We also provide several means of thread and rust protection during transit and storage. Plus, we can also provide the mounting, routing, and installation assessments necessary to ensure your products reach their full life-expectancy during operation.

labeling

With more equipment manufacturers adopting the "kitted" method of fluid transfer products, labeling has never been more necessary to ensure your operators reach maximum efficiency during installation. Gone are the days of sorting through tangled crates containing hundreds of skus. At Mid-State, we provide clear, legible labeling options to help you stay efficient. We offer a full suite of label sizes, types, colors, and will work closely with you to guarantee success with every order.

stock

Not only do we cater to OEM customers, but as one of America's largest distributors of fluid conveyance products, we  offer expertise in stocking the only the most relevant products, whether that be bulk hose and fittings, adapters, or assembled kits. We regularly work under Kanban systems, just-in-time delivery options, and blanket orders, and can always find a solution that meets your needs.

crimp options

Whether you build 5 assemblies or 5 thousand a month, Mid-State offers the right crimping units, tooling, inventory, and training necessary to turn your facility into a first-class hose assembly shop. We offer a full array of mobile and stationary crimp machines, as well as the accessories needed to produce only the highest quality assemblies. Need help with your setup?
