Our History

Wesley M. McAfee founded Alliance Hose & Rubber Co. in 1932, in the heart of the Great Depression, after he was laid off by another hose company. In 1953 Wes McAfee's son-in-law, Bud Heckler, joined Alliance Hose as a salesman. In 1974 Alliance Hose moved to 1061 W. Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, and the following year Bud took over control of the company. In 1994 Bud's son, Dave Heckler, joined Alliance Hose after working in the electronics industry for 12 years. Dave became president of Alliance Hose in 1999. In 2007, Alliance moved to 91 Joey Dr., Elk Grove Village, IL. By 2013 Alliance out grew that space and moved to 945 N. Larch Ave., Elmhurst, IL 60126.
