Our history

In 1953, Plastiflex was founded in Fountain Valley, California by Lewis Herrmann and Jack Baker. They developed a novel process to spiral wounding plastic hoses. After that, the company was immediately positioned in its markets as the Hose Innovator.

Nowadays, Plastiflex is operating in five key markets: Floor care, Healthcare, Swimming Pools, Industrial applications, and White goods.

In 1998, 3D Participaties, Belgian-based family-owned private equity firm and partner of Plastiflex since 1991, took over the company.

In 2018 Plastiflex acquired Haviland Plastics a key player in the US pool business. With this acquisition Plastiflex became the absolute market leader in that segment.

To further expand our pool and carwash market share we acquired Smooth-bor Plastics US in 2020.

Plastiflex continued its growth path in 2021 with Amnitec Netherlands joining our Group operating under the new name of Amniflex. A key market player in the industrial hoses for chemicals and other heavy duty applications.

At the end of 2021 IK Investment Partners became the new owner of Plastiflex Group.

Under the new ownership of IK, Plastiflex continues his growth plan with in 2022 the acquisition of Walter Potthoff Gmbh a strong market reference in the injection moulding industry specialised in healthcare and industrial solutions.
