About Yates

Yates Cylinders is a manufacturer and rebuilder of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders.

Going Strong Since 1972

Growth

Yates Industries is a manufacturer and rebuilder of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders of world-class value. Established as a fluid power distributor by William H. Yates II in 1972, Yates has evolved into a state-of-the-art company with over 300,000+ sq. ft. of manufacturing and repair space.

In 1993, William H. Yates III took over the business, and his innovative vision of making Yates a leading manufacturer and repair facility in the U.S. became a reality. In just five short years, the viable demand for Yates quality products and services continued to grow, prompting several expansions in Georgia and Alabama. Adding these facilities gave Yates greater capacity for our welded and mill duty cylinder lines; enabling us to provide faster turnaround times and increase our service area throughout the southern U.S.

Yates strives to maintain our reputation as one of the largest most complete pneumatic and hydraulic cylinder manufacturers in the country.

Yates Timeline

1972

1972

In the spring of 1972, William H. Yates II founded Yates Industries Incorporated, a distributor of fluid power products and a repair facility for the fluid power industry. In early 1975, the Yates Cylinder Division was created to provide heavy-duty N.F.P.A cylinders to our local customers, and by the late 1970’s, our cylinder line expanded to include medium-duty hydraulic and steel pneumatic products.

1985

1985

By the mid 1980’s, the Yates name had become synonymous with Quality Cylinder Repairs. Our Yates Cylinder lines were being distributed by an ever-growing international distributor network. To ensure our continued growth, Yates Industries purchased multiple state-of-the-art CNC machines. A short time later, we computerized our inventory control, accounting, purchasing, and sales processes to further increase production and shorten delivery times, for complete customer satisfaction.

In 1998, Yates Industries purchased a 100,000+ square foot facility at 23050 Industrial Drive East, St. Clair Shores, Michigan, which allowed all three operating units to sit under one roof. This new facility allowed us to expand our engineering and manufacturing departments.
