About the Company

Apache is widely recognized across the US for the variety and quality of our hose, belting, custom fabrications, onsite belt services, and consumer products.

We specialize in the value-added fabrication of belt, hose, and cut & molded products for a wide array of industries and applications. Our products are available nationwide through our network of distributor, dealer, and retail customers, or sold directly to OEMs.


Our organization began with the vision of Bob South. In 1963 he saw an opportunity for a Midwestern company that aspired to be more than a distributor of industrial hoses. He saw a thriving operation that could supply vital parts to both industry and agriculture.
Over the years that vision has expanded, and today Apache is a highly driven, global organization with offices throughout the U.S. As we move into the future Apache will play a more strategic role in industry leadership with the ability to provide a broader portfolio of products, OEM components, and custom-designed parts for unique applications.

Part of our strategy for growth and expansion of our existing capabilities is through acquisitions. We’ve acquired Hose Central, a respected wholesale distribution company; EX-Cel Industrial Belting, a major player in the heavy-duty belt market, and a significant manufacturer and fabricator; AG Belt, Inc., a leading fabricator of baler belting for the agricultural market; Seals Unlimited, Inc., a manufacturer of rubber extrusion, rubber moldings, gaskets, and hydraulic gate seals for both government and private industries; and Trico Belting & Supply Company, the leading supplier of lightweight belting solutions. As a result of this most recent acquisition, the new Apache | Trico Industrial Division is now one of the largest belting suppliers in North America.
