frequently asked questions

Where did the name Dualos name come from?

When Dualos was first founded, the fundamental hydraulic fitting part itself was inspiration for the name. The initial parts being designed had 2 or dual holes, and these two words were combined and shortened to form the word dualos. Moving forward 10 years, we now find our name is more ‘fitting’ (pun intended) then we could have imagined. As our company grows we honor our foundation and what brought us to the place we are today; utilizing complementary technologies to solve everyday challenges.
