Flexitech has sites in 7 different countries to ensure we are close to our customers and can maintain agile design and manufacturing processes with controlled costs and short lead-times. Our head office is in Saint-Etienne, France, near to Lyon.

One thing that sets Flexitech apart is that Flexitech is the only global brake hose supplier that has at least one factory in each of the 4 main automotive regions: Europe, Asia, North America and South America. This local presence supports our ability to develop products and solutions that meet our customers’ requirements.

Flexitech France

Flexitech has 3 sites in France:

Montrond les Bains: the group’s historical site which contains a brake hose assembly plant and a complete test laboratory.

Panissières: opened in 2001, this site produces hoses to be fitted in European factories.

Saint-Just-Saint-Rambert: the company’s head office, which also houses the Research and Innovation and Customer-projects departments, as well as the company’s support activity departments (Sales, Purchasing, IT, Finance, HR).

Flexitech China

In Wuxi, a city close to Shanghai, the hose manufacturing and assembly plant was opened in 2016. It contains a complete test laboratory and the best human resources for engineering, project and sales management.

Flexitech Romania

The plant is in Ploiesti, an hour’s drive from Bucharest. Opened in 2003, it has a large production capacity with 28 assembly lines. It is an agile set-up and a supplier to a lot of our partners.

Flexitech USA

Flexitech has been present in the USA since 1999, and in New Boston (Michigan), near to Detroit, has set-up a centre of excellence that brings together Research and Development, customer project management and commercial activities for our North American customers.

Flexitech Brazil

We are the only brake hose manufacturer with production facilities in South America, in Sao Paulo, which enables us to satisfy customer requirements and become involved at all project stages quickly and at lower cost. The environmental impact due to transport is also considerably reduced to deliver customers on this continent. Our hose manufacturing and assembly plant also has a test laboratory, “technical support” and sales departments.

Flexitech Italy

In 2021, Flexitech acquired BHP, one of the European leaders in OEM brake hose and shock absorber hose spare parts. The company is based in Pinerolo, close to Turin, and has extensive know-how, organisation and production equipment dedicated to this market.

Flexitech Mexico

Flexitech has 3 factories in San Luis Potosí, three hours’ drive from Mexico City. The first hose assembly plant was built in 2009. The Group’s strong growth in the region led to the construction of a second plant for manufacturing hoses for the region’s needs in 2012; in 2021, the third plant was built to double our assembly capacity.
