On the 10th of Dec 2020 AAE and Eaton signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish an exclusive TSO approved aerospace hose shop in Australia, supplying hose assemblies and fluid conveyance products from the Aeroquip® product line. This capability within the Australasian region will support the Australian Defence Force and commercial industry with an important sovereign capability. AAE will be approved to manufacture and repair a wide range of low, medium and high pressure aerospace hose assemblies, tested and certified to the highest possible quality control requirements.
"We've engaged with Eaton as they are the world-leading OEM of fluid conveyance products, and we are excited to be launching the Aerospace Hose Shop. Having discussed this capability with our well established customer base across Defence and industry, we are confident our Hose Shop will be a welcome addition to our existing product and service offerings. " Viv Johnston, Sales Manager.

Supporting Australian Defence and Industry
While AAE and Eaton are working hard to establish the Aerospace Hose Shop, AAE is already stocking a wide range of fluid conveyance products that can be found in the online AAE eStore. AAE also has weekly shipments out of the USA for hose assemblies and can right now support your hose assembly requirements.
We have become renowned for our aircraft hardware distribution business, and we pledge to deliver the same level of customer service and support with our Aerospace Hose Shop.
Current Hose Shop Status
We'll keep you updated as to when our shop is ready to produce hose assemblies, but in the meantime we can still support you through our USA based Master distributor. To help keep costs and turnaround times down, we have weekly consolidated imports of hose assemblies from this facility. Let us quote on your next hose requirement!
