COMPANY HISTORY

Viper Performance Hoses Ltd is an independent silicone hose manufacturer, wholesaling & retailing form the UK.


In 2004, The business started out initially only re-selling generic unbranded silicone hoses made by another existing UK manufacturer to retail customers over the phone.


2005, The Viper Performance brand is created together with a retail website, to enable the public to purchase silicone hoses online, at the time this facility was not offered by any rivals in this industry. Viper's moto and philosophy to this day was fast product turnaround from stock, providing a quality product, and a high level of customer care.


2006, Viper Performance takes complete control of its material sourcing, build quality and tool making. Industrial premises are needed to cope with the growing demand for its products. The trade customer base grew as word spread of the service offered and quick lead times. Customers where able to meet the team at various events and exhibitions. Viper Performance was competing against cheaper imported versions of hoses made with much cheaper materials, loaded with fillers, and poor quality fabrics which were being passed off on various auction sites. The trade was becoming wise to this and was drawn to Viper Performance because of its uncompromising attitude to top quality in all its materials and build protocols.


2007 saw the launch of an improved 2nd generation website, now with a dealer area access, a unique service in our industry at the time. Forward thinking and technical improvements in tool making, manufacturing methods and bespoke IT systems allowed Viper Performance to economically offer small production silicone hoses from a one off prototype to larger volumes.


2008 Viper Performance moves again to larger premises to meet the growing demand and increased product range.

2009 Viper Performance was the first in our industry to launch a 3 year warranty on all its silicone products. Introducing other products to offer a complete fluid transfer solution, to include a range of high quality sourced braided hoses for oil and fuel, offering an alternative product for when Silicone is not suitable.


2011. Viper adds over one hundred new part numbers, now carrying stock in excess of 40.000 silicone hoses and pipes. Introduction of hose fittings for oil and fuel to complement the braided hoses launched in 2009.


2012. Over the years the business has shifted from a sales ratio of 80% private retail customers with 20% trade customers to a more or less exact reversal of this ratio. Today more than 85% of turn over is from wholesale and trade clients buying a mix of universal silicone hoses, and custom build hoses.


2013 In 2012 Viper was spread across 3 different premises. Viper consolidated its sales offices and warehouse and moved to a 7500 sq Ft modern industrial unit in Telford central England. A trade counter & showroom was built for visitors. Viper increases its silicone hose warranty to a lifetime.


2015 A new website is launched with easier navigation for mobile devices. Viper Performance launches a whole range of specialist silicone products to enter other markets such as silicone sheeting, silicone sponge, extruded profiles, and moulded parts. Carbon Fiber elbows and straights now also complement the existing range of hoses and pipes.


2017 Over 250 product demonstrations are filmed and published on the website and Youtube making the most complete website in the market in terms of technical and product information.


NOW AND THE FUTURE. Viper Performance will continue to innovate and develop products, quality, systems, and its market share into new markets.

SILICONE HOSES VS RUBBER HOSES

Compared to standard black rubber hoses, Silicone rubber offer superior resistance to negative and positive temperatures, and offer a much longer service life. Viper Performance silicone hoses are expected to last many times longer than basic black EPDM rubber hoses. (typically working temperatures rating of silicone hoses is -40°C to +170°C) or more! Quality Silicone Hoses will not elongate, stretch, crack or split due to weathering and ageing due to a higher tensile strength compared to rubber. Silicone Hoses have excellent resistance to Ozone, are very reliable, look great, and can be made in a number of colours!

WHY CHOOSE VIPER PERFORMANCE

PRICES

Viper Performance hoses have a very competitively priced RRP against other well known UK manufacturers, our trade customers benefit from an excellent an pricing structure. Yes Ebay can be cheap for silicone but sellers come and go, many selling from the back bedroom shifting boxes of cheap imported goods, with no concern for quality, no technical knowledge, and no customer service. At Viper we use top quality silicone, strong fabrics, highest grade silicone base material, and vibrant glossy fade free pigments. Buy cheap, buy twice, cheap is often false economy.

QUALITY OF VIPER HOSES Vs Cheaper generic hoses

Since day one our philosophy has been quality and service, and this will always be. If you want the cheapest possible hoses, you will easily find hundreds of sellers on auction sites all re-selling cheap quality from the far east and passing this on as good quality.


We conducted some basic tests on some of the cheap hoses, and found that they tend to contain a lot of fillers, and de- laminate easily or in some cases not cured properly. From time to time clients tell us that they can get hoses at half the price elsewhere, although this can be true, we found that these hoses are quite different in quality, material and dimensions. Buy cheap buy twice. For a just few pennies or pounds more you get a quality Viper Performance Hose! Is saving a few pounds worth the risk of damaging your turbo or engine with a failing hose? Cheap quality hoses do not have a guarantee for a reason.

QUALITY MATTERS

Every hose is hand crafted, checked and rejected if there is a defect or incorrect build of any kind detected by our quality control team. Watch our movie on our home page showing our manufacturing.
