The ProPulse Difference
We offer the right balance of technical excellence, industry knowledge, and flexibility to make incredible improvements to a wide range of markets.
Our team is comprised of bright technical experts who are ready to help you solve tough problems.
We are large enough to be a leader in the fluid power industry but small enough to be responsive, proactive, and fast on our feet. By embracing change and innovation, we craft individualized products and solutions specific to your needs.
We live for this—and you’ll be glad—because we will help you get the right hose with optimal fit, form, and function.
QUALITY & PERFORMANCE
On-time delivery and quality are automatic when information, documents and processes are controlled.
More often than not, it’s the hose that makes or breaks that end goal. Yet sometimes, the hose doesn’t get the respect it deserves. It does at ProPulse. We have devoted significant time and brainpower to controlled performance resulting in a series of policies, procedures, technologies, and tests with the highest level of quality and performance for our high-pressure hoses.
Allowing for easier tracking and replacement, lot and batch traceability are built into our manufacturing process of every single hose. Our proprietary PLC-controlled automatic assembly lines and crimping technology are the most innovative and advanced machinery in North America; they support the low cost of throughput with very high-quality results.
Beyond that, day in and day out, we are continually monitoring, documenting, and controlling every aspect of the manufacturing, and assembly process. Our on-time delivery is at a sustained success rate of 99.99% for two years in a row.
ProPulse is ISO 9001:2015 Certified
ISO 9001:2015 certification provides us the ability to enact growth, profitability as well as cost savings.
We rigorously vet all suppliers.
Outside suppliers are subject to stringent visits and on-site visits. All incoming shipments are counted, verified, inspected, and documented by in-house quality assurance technicians.
Hose Lot Testing
Every lot of hose manufactured is inspected, tested and recorded.
Quality assurance technicians perform elongation, burst, and leak tests to verify the hose is made to spec. In addition, technicians will diligently inspect the cover, layline, OD, ID, and concentricity to ensure the highest level of quality.
Each work ticket requires first piece inspection
During assembly, each work ticket requires first piece inspection, validation, and approval before production can continue. Qualified personnel inspect the date stamp, crimp specs, and hose length. Beyond that, technicians continually conduct out-of-box audits.
After a box of assemblies has been packaged, box quantities, placards, labels, ties, and overall condition are inspected by job title will go here and must be approved before advancing to the loading dock.
WHERE WE ARE HEADED
Past. Present. Power Moving Forward.
Longevity isn’t just company history—it’s about being industry specific and knowing where our business is headed.
ProPulse—a Schieffer Company is backed by nearly a century of innovative and precise German design and engineering. We partner with vendors and OEMs from across the globe and network in diverse market groups.
We have done a comprehensive analysis of the high-pressure hose market and identified your company as a leader among your peers. We know that what you do dovetails with our core strengths. We can’t say that about every company, and frankly, we don’t sell to just anyone. We are quiet confident that what we do is better than anyone else who supports production lines with concentrations of high volume, small bore hoses.
Today, ProPulse is successful and growing, having doubled in the last five years. Our management team is focused on a detailed strategic planning process that considers and addresses both the internal and external factors and conditions that affect the business. Most recently, we invested in a new building with office space, warehousing and land for further expansion. Additional equipment was also purchased to increase manufacturing hose capacity by another 50%.
We work closely with customers to bring the best innovative products to the marketplace by:
Always focusing on customer satisfaction and success
Continuously improving products and productivity for the entire life cycle of the products
Responding rapidly to changing customer needs and market demands
Continually working to reduce total cost while maintaining top quality and performance

Shaped For Your Business.
Custom Hoses Engineered For Your Industry.
Let us take you on a power trip—our facility, technical excellence and equipment are state of the art.
Two decades of partnering with numerous worldwide OEM’s has built the foundation for our business ethics and experience. ProPulse consistently fulfills strict quality and delivery requirements, because we can handle the pressure.

Our manufacturing capabilities have a reputation for unsurpassed turn-around time; engineering, design and development; and prototype assemblies to help get projects off the ground quickly. 99.99% on-time delivery doesn’t happen by accident. Sustaining that rate for over 3 years is technical excellence.
ProPulse's in-house testing capabilities account for every dynamic test within SAE and EN norms.
Our evaluations focus on simulating environmental concerns to see how hose assemblies will perform under different types of stress. We recently invested heavily in the infrastructure and capital equipment needed to help OEM customers reduce downtime, increasing safety and reducing costly damages from failures is priority. Consistent testing and retesting, in conjunction with audits and ISO 9001:2015 certification, assures the quality of our operation and products.
Heat Shrink Capping Technology
We use heat shrink technology to securely seal the ends of their hydraulic hose assemblies, providing a superior alternative to traditional caps and plugs. The seal cap uses a tear strip that can be removed in just seconds. This improves the customer’s speed of assembly and further mitigates the risk of contamination by keeping the hose covered until the exact moment of installation.
We use spectro technology to measure reflected or transmitted light at many points on the visual spectrum, which results in a curve. Since the curve of each color is as unique as a finger print, it is the optimal tool for identifying, specifying and matching exact pantone colors for branding purposes.
Our proprietary PLC controlled automatic assembly lines and crimping technology are the most innovative and advanced machinery in North America; we support the low cost of throughput with very high-quality results.

We’ll help you be better at any stage, whether you choose to engage us early in product ideation sessions, in design review and feasibility or in prototyping and packaging development.
