History

Freelin-Wade was started in 1980 behind the vision of our founder Fred Plews to, "Find a need and fill it." Fred's long career building dental equipment led him to design a special polyurethane tube for that industry. His high-performance tubing became the foundation for Freelin-Wade.

We quickly learned that polyurethane not only works great in dental equipment but has applications across virtually all industries. In the decades that have followed, we've been expanding our product line to include more than 4,000 stock items. In addition, we have increased our custom capabilities so we can do an infinite range of variations.

The company that started in Fred's garage now employs more than 100 people in a large manufacturing center in McMinnville, Oregon. We are located among the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley in the middle of the region's famous pinot noir vineyards. We continue to hold to Fred's vision, filling our customer's needs with our large inventory of plastic tubing, flexible hoses and rapid turn around of variations.

Freelin-Wade was acquired in 1990 by Coilhose Pneumatics, of East Brunswick, New Jersey. Many of our more popular items can also be found in their catalog.
