When buying a hose reel, quality is crucial. A poorly made hose reel can break very easily and make your life more difficult rather than easier. And there are lots of cheaply made hose reels out there. Usually, they are manufactured in overseas facilities using cheap materials. In this article, I’ll be looking at American made hose reels.
Which Companies Sell Hose Reels Made in the USA? (The Short Answer)
After a lot of research, I found 3 companies that produce hose reels in the USA. They are Reelcraft, Coxreels and Hannay Reels.
American Made Hose Reels (3 Options)
Now that we know which companies offer US made hose reels, let’s take a look at each one in a little more detail.
Reelcraft has been manufacturing hose reels since 1971. It is a well-known hose reel manufacturer that sells products to people across many different fields. According to the company’s about us page, Reelcraft manufactures the largest range of hoses, cords, cable reels, and more.
It is unclear whether all of Reelcraft’s hose reels are made in the USA. That said, it does conduct at least some of its manufacturing at a facility in Columbia City, Indiana.
I came across a few listings on Amazon from Reelcraft’s official store that clearly states they are made in the USA. Here are a few of them for you to check out.
- 7650 Heavy Duty Spring Retractable Hose Reel

Founded in 1923, Coxreels is a well-known hose company that offers products for many different applications. Over its 100 years in the business, it has picked up a reputation for offering exceptionally well-made hose reels.
Coxreels manufactures its products in the United States. By keeping its manufacturing operations within the US, the company is able to closely monitor and control the production process. This ensures that each of Coxreel’s products meets strict quality standards and is built to withstand even the toughest conditions.
Its primary manufacturing facility is located in Tempe, Arizona. I found this information from Coxreels’ official website. For more information regarding the company’s manufacturing processes, check this out.

Hannay Reels was founded in 1933. Over the company’s history, it has been able to continuously grow and it now offers products to people in countries all over the world.

Hose Reels that People Think Are American Made (But They’re Not)
One company kept popping up during my search for American made hose reels on third-party websites. However, the company’s official website clearly states that its products are made overseas. Here’s what I found.
Liberty Garden Hose
Some readers may be surprised to learn that Liberty Garden Hose doesn’t manufacture its hose reels in the USA. There are many third-party sites that have this company down as an American manufacturer. However, Liberty Garden Hose’s official FAQ page clearly states that its products are made to high standards in China, Vietnam, and India.
It is unclear where these third-party sites are getting their information from since this information is readily available on Liberty Garden Hose’s website.
