History

Peter G. Sloan started this company on July 1, 1969. He was the 13th direct descendant of William Bradford, a Mayflower Pilgrim. Peter attended Yale University and served as a bomber pilot in World War II. While serving in the Air Force Pete met a gentleman by the name of Larry Hansen, who was a pilot as well. When Pete returned home, he started selling Hanson Couplings from the trunk of his car. He was successful and decided it was time to open his own company which became Sloan Fluid Accessories.

In 1985 due to health reasons, he connected with Mr. Robert Franklin and on October 10, 1985 Mr. Franklin of Franklin Engineering purchased all the outstanding stock of Sloan Fluid Accessories, Inc and became the new owner. The Franklin Family has continually provided an extraordinary workplace for all the employees. Mr. Franklin passed away in 2016, and his wife, Cornell, is retired living in the Memphis area.

Josh Williamson, the grandson is now serving as Executive Vice President along with the granddaughter, Shannon Williams who is serving as Treasurer. Wayne Mangrum, who has been with the company since 1983, now serves as President, Mark Santschi, serves as Vice President of Sales, and Anita Mangrum, Corporate Secretary, has been with the company since 1995.
