Headquartered in Gainesville, Texas, the Petroflex family was founded by Pete and Susie Shauf in 1983.  The company is a leading extruder of HDPE conduit and accessories.  We SPECIALIZE in preinstalling cable inside our conduit for the Cableguard  products.  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.

Petroflex is a family.  We have team members who started in the plant right after high school and are now our plant, sales and specialty products managers, with us 25-35+ years later.  Mutual respect for each other and pride in the company have been key to this loyalty and longevity.  With this level of continuing experience, our customers and partners win with solutions to questions and innovations that only come with experience.  A robust safety program ensures all team members have a safe place to work.  We proudly support our community through youth program scholarships, as a United Way Pacesetter company, as an active supporter of our Volunteers In Service To Others (VISTO) food bank, and close to our heart, My Brother’s House, a sober living facility.  We support our local media.  We support our local businesses.  We are proud of our team and community.

At Petroflex, we have always prided ourselves on providing quality products and a high level of service to meet our customer’s needs.  Rigorous quality control standards are maintained on all production shifts  and in our on-site inspection laboratory.  Petroflex manufactures duct from top quality polyethylene material.  A robust 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 for our customers.  This quality and service has resulted in many long-established relationships we value.  The majority of our total sales are generated by repeat orders from active, existing customers.


Petroflex believes customer retention is directly tied to service and quality of product.  With this guiding principle in mind, we offer 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 Petroflex the condition of the product upon arrival.  Mitchell Shauf personally reads every postcard and send respondents a letter thanking them for their comments.  He also takes immediate action if a problem occurs.
