ProPulse Celebrates 25 Years

Twenty-five years ago, Schieffer Co. International opened in Peosta with just six employees in a 12,000-square-foot facility. In the two and a half decades since, the Iowa hose manufacturer has changed its name and expanded exponentially.

Now known as ProPulse, a Schieffer Company, it employs 130, utilizes 130,000 square feet of space, and is celebrating its silver anniversary in March. “25 years is a long time,” said Jeff Theis, President and CEO of ProPulse, “but I believe ‘blink of an eye’ is appropriate when describing our journey.”

To achieve this milestone ProPulse endured a shift in mentality and manufacturing capabilities. Over the last 25 years the hose manufacturer transitioned from a small hose distributor to a mid-sized hose manufacturer who supplies major original equipment manufacturers across the country. In 2021, ProPulse added 20,000 square feet of manufacturing space to the production facility and allowed ProPulse to invest in industry leading hose manufacturing technology.

“We say what we are going to do, and we do it on-time, every time,” said Theis. Much of ProPulse’s success stems from their ability to uphold customer satisfaction, which in turn allows them to consecutively increase sales year over year. And that customer-focused mindset isn’t going away anytime soon. “ProPulse will always be known as a company that keeps its commitments to our customers,” said Theis.
