Aero-Flex Corp. was founded in 2008 by the father and son team of Josh and Michael Deakter. Michael has over 40 years experience in cryogenic valves, vacuum jacketed piping and flex hose with his previous company CPC Cryo Lab. His company had the pleasure of working on the space shuttle program, top secret DOD facilities and with the cryogenic liquid and gas manufacturers to supply them with cryogenic hoses and piping for a variety of different applications.
A few years later Josh and Michael along with another father and son team opened an Aerospace hose shop in Jacksonville Fl. They were responsible for most of the hose assemblies going to the major airlines to be put directly on the aircraft. The plan was to help the other father and son team grow the business and then open up their own shop closer to home. Jacksonville was 4 hours away from Jupiter so it was time to stop traveling every week for work and be closer to home and family.
