About Us

Headquartered in Gainesville, Texas, the Petroflex family was founded by Pete and Susie Shauf in 1983.  The company is a leading extruder of HDPE (high-density polyethylene) duct and accessories. PNA (Petroflex North America, Ltd.) manufactures high-quality products for the irrigation, electric utility, oil & gas, telecommunications, data/voice, renewable energy (wind & solar), and cable television markets.  The product line includes cable-in-conduit, straight duct, corrugated duct, duct with striping, duct over rope and tape, take apart metal reels, lubricants, couplings & fittings, guy guards, and cable markers.  Our duct is manufactured in sizes ranging from 13mm to 6”.  PNA’s products are sold throughout the United States directly to a network of wholesale distributors.  The manufacturing facilities operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Advanced Pedestals (API) www.api-plastics.com was purchased in January of 1997 and moved to Texas from Florida to produce secondary above-ground electrical pedestals and accessories.  In early 2002 API began producing high quality agricultural products such as cattle lickfeeders, stall feeders, mineral feeders and water stock tanks.  API also became more involved with custom rotational and injection molded products.  Currently they produce over 150 custom OEM, proprietary products.

At PNA, we have always prided ourselves in providing quality products and a high level of service that meet the customer’s needs.  Rigorous quality control standards are maintained on all production shifts in our on-site inspection laboratory.  Petroflex manufactures duct from top quality polyethylene material. An adequate in-house inventory is maintained and quick delivery turnaround is provided on all non-custom orders.  Our long-term team members provide a continuing level of expertise and service to customers.  This quality and service has resulted in many long established relationships.   The majority of our total sales are generated by repeat orders from active, existing customers.

PNA believes customer retention is directly tied to service and quality of product.  With this guiding principle in mind, PNA offers the “Picture Perfect” system in order to better serve and evaluate the needs of our customers.  As part of this program, a package is sent with every order that includes the bill of lading, packing slip, a picture of the product as it left the warehouse and a postcard for the recipient to report to PNA the condition of the product upon arrival.  Pete Shauf personally reads every postcard and sends respondents a letter thanking them for their comments.  He also takes immediate action if a problem occurs.
