Since 1962, Tru-Flex has been designing and manufacturing flexible metal hose in West Lebanon, Indiana. We are a proven industry leader because of an unwavering commitment to quality, customer service, on-time delivery; best-in-class engineering resources; and innovative design. We also build our own manufacturing equipment which gives us a distinct advantage over our competitors and results in unique customer-focused solutions.


One of every two semi-tractors on the road today contains a Tru-Flex product. Additionally, with concerns for air quality growing, many off-highway machines contain our innovative, emission-controlling flexible hoses. From our engineered product line that includes patented products such as zero-leak torsional bellows, zero-leak Power Flex® and TFL-SSS, to standard strip-wound interlock hoses, our capability to manufacture engineered exhaust components is endless. Tru-Flex is also well represented in other industries that count on flexible hoses to contain, control, protect, or transfer a variety of materials. Those products include crush-proof hoses for moving grains, plastic pellets, wood chips, and other dry materials; heat-resistant ductwork and chimney liner; and flexible hoses that protect less durable tubing or electronics. We do it all.

The Machine Operator is responsible for safely performing machine setups to start the production cycle and as needed when the production schedule demands. Incumbent must also control and adjust the functions and settings of machines and will be responsible for ensuring products meet our quality standards with regard to assembly specifications.
