Control Line Equipment began as a support division to a fluid power distributor providing
modifications to standard products. The concept of providing special modifications lead to
the start of manufacturing unique, niche marketed products for OEM and distributors alike.
The first product lines were the small bore air and hydraulic cylinders followed shortly
after by the modular hydraulic hand pumps. Lines acquired from other fluid power manufacturers
complimented the original product offerings. Since 1980, nineteen other product lines have
either been acquired or developed to fill a niche market need.
As the product offering grew, so did the markets served. The early days were concentrated
on the mobile hydraulic markets in underground mining and aircraft ground support. Current
day markets include semiconductor, agricultural, industrial and marine just to name a few.
Our distributor network has grown along with the product offering. The coverage from our
distributors encompasses most of United States and parts of Canada.
