Geib Provides Quality Hose Assemblies by Adhering to NAHAD Safety Institute Standards


A member of NAHAD’s (The Association for Hose & Accessories Distribution) Hose Safety Institute, Geib Industries trains its staff on and adheres to the rigorous NAHAD Hose Assembly Guidelines.

Chris Geib, President of Geib Industries, is a member of Eaton's advisory board and active in NAHAD. A member of the NAHAD board since 2011, Geib served on the Education, Training, and Services Committee and Young Executive Council. Geib believes that it’s important to get young executives and future leaders involved in the industry and facilitate more business succession.

Business is All in the Family

In the business since 1989, Chris Geib started out pushing a broom and working summers at the family business. By the time he went to college, he had earned a sales position and beat the streets cold-calling in and around the Chicago area. After stints as sales manager and vice president, Geib is now the president and owner of the company.

“Growing up in the hose business has been great. I wake up every day excited about what the new day will bring for my company and our industry”, states Geib. He firmly believes that the success of Geib Industries is built upon meeting the expectations of their customers. “We are a job shop, not a large production house,” Geib says of his talented and hardworking staff.

Offering Smart Technology Solutions to Customers


This specialization allows them to work with customers to implement new smart technologies – monitoring the condition of a hose throughout its lifetime, warning users of a possible impending failure and preventing potential hazards and spills. 

An ISO certified company, Geib Industries has been using ERP business management software by Tribute, Inc. to run their business for over 25 years.

Open six days a week, they operate a full service counter and strive every day to fulfill their mission – to be the leader in the hose and fittings member
