BMI Hose is number 2 in the emergency hydraulic hose repair market and a leading supplier of hydraulic and industrial hoses, related components and accessories. 

The first pilot BMI Hose centre opened in Dudley in November 2007, just a few miles from the corporate headquarters in Wolverhampton. The acquisition of Hiflex Fluidpower, in September 2008, catapulted BMI Hose to the number 2 position in the industrial and hydraulic hose market. 

BMI use world class products, from leading suppliers, including Bridgestone hydraulic hose and Intertraco hose fittings. 

BMI offers a convenient, fast, and efficient nationwide 24/7 emergency on-site hydraulic hose repair service from a network of 15 service centres (March 2010) and a fleet of more than 75 fully equipped service vehicles. 

The BMI network is a mix of company owned stores and franchised outlets, which means that the local service and supply centres have the commitment and personal touch of small businesses, but are backed by the resources of a national company. 

Opportunities for new BMI Hose service and supply centres exist throughout the UK.
