About Us

Joseph A. Wade, Inc. has been serving the south central counties of Kentucky with quality industrial hardware and hydraulic hoses since 1985.  An operation that started as a garage business for owners, Betty and Jerry Allway, has grown into a large supplier for all of the area industries.  In response to the growing needs of our customers a 10,000 square foot storefront was built and over 15,000 inventory items were put on the shelves to keep area businesses and farmers up and running.  Items such as fasteners, custom hydraulic hoses, fittings, metal tube fabrication, belts, safety products, brass fittings, cutting tools, black pipe, abrasives, roller chains, and bearings.

In 2001 we became a dealer for the Tubes 'N Hoses line of products, thus expanding our capabilities in tube bending and fabrication.  Our knowledgeable technicians can duplicate almost any tube or hose assembly such as air conditioner and power steering lines, brake lines, stainless braided lines, fuel injection and hydraulic metal tubes. 

Our mission is to provide area industries and farming families with maintenance hardware products to keep equipment downtime to a minimum and our community and its workers productive.

2016 has brought changes to JAW.  As of April 2016 Jerry retired and left his well trained and capable staff in control of the business. 

Susie runs the office, Mary the purchasing and sales,  and Eric manages the service department.
