Reelcraft History
Reelcraft products began as the Equipment Corporation, in Delta, Ohio and supplied hose reels to distributors, who then sold the products under private labels. On June 11, 1943, the assets of Equipment Corporation were acquired by the Wayne Pump Company and moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Six years later, following the purchase of the company by C.J. Symington, the Wayne Pump Company merged with the Martin Schwartz Company from Salisbury, Maryland. Symington combined the field working group and the senior management group of Martin Schwartz with the Wayne Pump Company name and location. In 1951, poor labor conditions and a strike in Fort Wayne forced Symington to move the Hose Reel Division and the Gasoline Pump Division back to Salisbury, Maryland, leaving the Air Compressor Division as the only product line left in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

During the late 50’s, the Wayne Pump Company name was changed to Symington - Wayne to include the Symington - Gould Company in Depew, New York. In the next ten years the Symington – Wayne Company would experience more changes than just its name. The following decade saw controlling interest change to Dresser Industries. After a one year legal fight, which pronounced Dresser victorious, a forced merger resulted. Following the merger, Dresser divested itself of the Hose Reel Division because of insufficient sales growth and in 1964 the Hose Reel Division was moved back to Fort Wayne, Indiana.

In 1969, the company changed hands once again when it was sold by Dresser Industries to Mr. Richard Schaller and Mr. Stan Penn, Jr. It was after this change in ownership that the company was renamed Reelcraft Industries. In 1971, using all fixtures, jigs, drawings, and finished and unfinished inventory that were included in the sale, Reelcraft began manufacturing hose reels once again. Following Richard Schaller’s retirement in 1981, Stan Penn became the sole owner and president of Reelcraft Industries.

In 1991, Reelcraft purchased Nordic Systems, of Mississauga, Canada. Nordic Systems manufactured specialty fire, fuel and custom designed reels and related fire and petroleum OEM equipment. In 2006, Nordic Systems was consolidated into Reelcraft’s Columbia City, Indiana facility and continue to manufacture custom, fuel and fire reels under the Reelcraft name.

Stan Penn passed away on January 2, 2004, and the ownership of Reelcraft Industries, Inc. transferred to a corporate trust, with his wife, Sally, serving as senior trustee. On August 16, 2007, Reelcraft Industries, Inc. was acquired by LN Acquisition Corp. a Harbour Group company headquarted in St. Louis, Missouri.

On December 28, 2010, SKF Corporation, a publicly traded company, purchased Lincoln Holdings Enterprise.

Widest range of products
Reelcraft manufactures over twenty five hundred models of hose, cord and cable reels, as diverse as heavy-duty hose reels used in the marine industry, hose reels within robotic automotive assembly cells and reels needed to syringe the greens of a golf course. These models include spring retractable, motor driven, hand crank, stainless steel, twin welding, twin hydraulic and electric reels, handling hose lengths up to six hundred feet and ranging from ¼ inch to 4 inches in diameter. The spring retractable models are widely used in industrial applications to improve safety by keeping hoses and cables off the floor as well as maintenance areas to provide air or power when and where it is needed.

The majority of Reelcraft hose reels deliver fluid and air, with the others designed to coil welding cables, extension and power cords. Our reels are used to transfer anything from air, water, transmission fluid, grease, oils, antifreeze, diesel fuels, welding gases, liquid pesticides, fertilizers, detergents, solvents, chemicals, blacktop sealers and printing inks, in industries as diverse as aviation, industrial and automotive markets, to reels for the residential garage. Reelcraft has proven itself as a highly innovative company in developing new products for a wide range of markets.

Industry leader for quality, service and delivery
Reelcraft`s dedicated workforce, together with implementation of programs such as Lean Manufacturing and SKF`s Business Excellence, have contributed to Reelcraft becoming the industry leader for manufacturing spring-driven reels in the United States and worldwide.

Country: United States
Origin: Domestic
Testimony: Thank you for all your time and support, and direction on how to make my project work. This is one of the reasons I will keep buying American! Sometimes I have my doubts about American stuff, but this is what sets us aside, service and good guys like you! Thanks again!
Ron Tremblay
Country: United States
Origin: Domestic
Testimony: `We have been using eight of your cord reels (#L4035 163 1) for 20 years now and have never experienced any problems with them in all that time. The only thing we have done is to replace the light fixture from time to time and on two of them we replaced the cord because we kept shortening up the length when repairing the damaged light fixture. They were all new in September 1995 and I remember thinking these things better be worth it. They sure as heck have been...`

Testimony: We are very happy with the Reelcraft Reels we use at our plant. We insist on Reelcraft because we appreciate the American made quality and the reliability we have experienced with them.
Becky Koenig

Origin: Domestic
Testimony: We bought this Reelcraft Hose Reel when we purchased our Jenny hot pressure washer 12 years ago. We use it daily and are very pleased.
Tom Baldacci and Claud Guidice
Country: United States
Origin: Domestic
Testimony: `Reelcraft`s quality, price competitive product has allowed us to compete in markets that were previously inaccessible. We can now offer an American Made, excellent quality product that is only marginally more expensive than the imported reels that we are seeing on the low cost competitor`s units. Additionally, the compact design of the DP Series and 4000 and 5000 Series reels allow us to fit our units into confined space, cabin

Origin: Domestic
Testimony: `Cahaba Truck and Equipment Co., Tuscaloosa, AL, has been using Reelcraft Industries hose and cord reels as their preferred choice of reels since October of 2010. Beginning with their initial shop set-up and use, and continuing with use on their Hi-Rail Truck and Equipment packages. The TP7650-OLP/L4545-123-3 twin pack is their most recent addition to in-plant reel usage while the TH88050 OMP and 7670 OLP are popular additions to their contractor Hi-Rail Material Handler product line.`
Duncan Brazier
Country: United States
Origin: Domestic
Testimony: `As the manufacturer of the CTE fuel and lube body I have used Reelcraft reels for the past 11 years and with a previous employer for 5-6 years before that. Throughout that time I`ve made two misguided forays into competitive products. Both times the poor quality of non-reelcraft products taught me an expensive lesson. Throughout my years using Reelcraft products I have never had a customer complaint about the product. In the sales process with competitive reels when you are asked what type of reels do you use
