Lockwood Products are produced in the US and distributed to customers around the world. The modular hose is one of the company’s signature products. Over the years, however, its product line has grown to include many more items. One of its recent innovations, for instance, is the mirror kit. The company also makes systems for vacuums. Mounts, shields, mirror products, ball adapters, nozzles, and magnetic components are just a few of its other offerings.
As with many manufacturing companies, Lockwood began on the basis of a problem that needed a solution. In this case, the problem was a lack of quality hose products on the market. Made by different brands, they all had their own unique shortcomings and weaknesses. Lockwood’s solution, however, was the Loc-Line. Inspiration for this line came from the modular hose. The company’s line addressed fundamental problems like hoses that slipped out of position, weak metal positioning rods prone to breaking, and more. Designs for the line were formulated in 1981, and by 1983 the company shipped its first products. Fast delivery and a popular response prompted an increase in product demand. It wasn’t long before the company expanded its product lines to address other problems, too.
Encouraged by the success of its Loc-Line System, the company soon branched off into other markets. Now, it makes acid resistant products and vacuum solutions, including an anti-static vacuum system complete with valves, hoses, nozzles, and adapters. Couplings, ball adapters, mirror products, and magnetic products are other products in high demand, too.
Today, Lockwood continues making products in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Although still made in the United States, its products are distributed around the world. If you’re not sure what to get, the company’s online catalog, videos, and customer support team offer assistance.
