Capabilities

Flexco Inc. is a longtime supplier of complex nonmetallic components to the aerospace industry. Typical Flexco parts include both rigid and flexible ducts, plenums, hoses, tubes, and other aircraft components. Flexco offers a wide range of aerospace standard hoses and ducts as well as build-to-print components. With over 50 years' experience, Flexco has become a leading producer of trapped tool composites, utilizing both pourable plaster mandrels as well as complex breakdown tooling.

While many Flexco parts are used in environmental control system applications, Flexco produces fabric-reinforced composite and rubber assemblies for myriad aircraft and ground-based applications. In addition to fabrication of simple laminates, Flexco offers added value by providing customers with complete assemblies, reducing project management costs and simplifying procurement processes. With a history of supplying entire ECS ducting systems for new commercial aircraft to supporting low volume spares for legacy military programs, no job is too big or too small for Flexco.
