The company was created in 1952 by Ken Davis Sr. Mr. Davis was a wealthy Texas oilman
who owned Mid-Continental Supply, an Aeroquip Distributor. A dispute between the
two companies arose. Mr. Davis’s response was to set up a few screw machines in one
of his buildings located at the Unit-Rig Corporation. Stratoflex was born and became
a well known name in the 1960’s and early 1970’s.
The Stratoflex aerospace Division still exist today in Ft. Worth, Texas. The company
is now owned by Parker.
