Yates Powering America Press Release

St. Clair Shores, MI

What do Nucor Steel, Cirque Du Soleil, the U.S. Soo Locks, The Boeing Company, Georgia Pacific, Disneyland, Siemens, Coe Press Equipment Company, Norfolk Southern Railroad, the United States Department of Defense and Leigh University all have in common? They all use Yates Industries cylinders.

Since its inauspicious start on Detroit's eastside in the summer of 1972, Yates Industries has been providing quality new and repaired hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders to all types of OEM manufacturers. Over this 42-year period, the company has forged a reputation that has enabled them to expand beyond the steel industry and into the mainstream of American commerce.

As the legendary football coach Vince Lombardi once said, "Success demands singleness of purpose." This single-minded purpose is the driving force motivating Yates' team of dedicated professional craftsmen to produce reliable and cost effective products that operate at peak performance, every time. Yates is so confident in their product quality, that they offer an industry-leading three-year warranty on new N.F.P.A. mounting style cylinders.

Yates Industries, with offices in St. Clair Shores, Michigan and Decatur, Alabama, is supported by a national distributor network and direct sales force headed by Steve Cavera. According to Vice President, Mark Cook, "Two additional facilities have opened to better serve our diverse and national customer base."

The company also offers 24-hour emergency service, pick-up and delivery service, design and engineering services and field application service. In addition, Yates Industries maintains the largest most complete repair facility in the Midwest. They warehouse a huge inventory of tubing, rod stock, cold rolled bar, and seals both standard and metric, enabling them to build and repair cylinders immediately.

From Sault Ste. Marie to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, Yates Industries has been supplying the country with new and repaired cylinders that are reliable and operate at peak performance. Yates Industries is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company.
