Key Hose, now a division of KFH Industries, was established in 1988 in Miami, Florida by Charles Genthner. Charlie began with 16 looms purchased from Europe and transformed Key Hose into the largest manufacturer of hose and related products in the world.
In 2010, Key Hose completed a relocation, which began in 2005, from Miami, Florida to Dothan, Alabama. This relocation allowed Key Hose to double its manufacturing space, streamline efficiencies, and increase stock of raw materials and finished goods while conforming to ISO style quality control standards.
Key specializes in the design and manufacture of hose related to the following industries: Municipal Fire Fighting, Industrial, Military, Marine, Mining, Agricultural, Irrigation, and Forestry applications. Key produces hose to meet NFPA, UL, MSHA, FM, FDA, and MIL‑H‑24606 standards.
Hose manufactured by Key designed to meet military specifications and USDA forestry standards have successfully passed first article testing standards set forth by the United States Federal Government.
