ELEY® Corporation, [pronounced 'ee-lee'], is a Nebraska-born, family-owned company that has been designing and providing commercial-duty garden hose, hose reels, and watering tools since our start in 1990. Growing up in rural farm & ranch country, we quickly learned the importance and value of quality-built equipment. By focusing on these small-town values, ELEY® (previously branded as Rapid-Reel®) has grown into one of America's most respected and leading brands of outdoor watering products. The three founding brothers, Mark, Warren, and Craig, still manage the organization, personally ensuring a Midwestern-style commitment to product quality and customer support.

        3. Sell these premium products at fair and reasonable prices
        4. Back them with unparalleled warranties and customer support

    Looking for Rapid-Reel?

    Don't worry, you found us. ELEY Corporation and Rapid-Reel are the same company...always have been.

    In 1990, when the John Eley family started a hose reel manufacturing company in their rural Nebraska hometown of Orchard, John and his three sons initially named it Reel Quick, Inc. However, in the mid-1990s, they decided to transition to the less confusing and more easily remembered, Rapid-Reel brand name. A few years later, they also introduced the sub-brand of TRITON. They marketed their hose reels under these brand names until 2010 when the product offering started expanding beyond just quality hose reels. With the addition of newly developed garden hose and watering tools, the need arose for a brand name that wasn't singularly focused on just hose reels. As a result, the company was renamed after the family's surname to Eley Corporation, and all products were consolidated under the ELEY brand name.

    We take a great deal of pride in being able to design, produce and deliver the finest garden hose reels, garden hose and watering tools on the market. We wouldn't put our name on it if we didn't.
