Yates Cylinders is a manufacturer and rebuilder of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders.
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.
Going strong for over 50 years; we proudly serve all industries from agriculture, aerospace, and defense to construction and steel. Our goal has always been to offer our customers the utmost in quality, service, and reliability. We achieve this through our most valuable resource, our people.

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.
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.
In January 2007, we proudly announced the opening of our newest facility in Decatur, Alabama: Yates Industries South, LLC—specializing in servicing steel mills, as well as all our customers’ cylinder needs. Today, Yates Industries and the Yates Cylinder Division continue to grow to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers and the manufacturing industry.
In 2013, 50,000 square feet of warehouse and manufacturing space was added to the Yates Industries’ Michigan facility, opening up many new service opportunities. With the new facility in place, Yates is providing faster order fulfillment, smoother processes, and enhanced custom manufacturing capabilities. More cylinder repair operations are now performed at our Michigan location, allowing Yates Industries South to expand their custom hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder manufacturing capabilities.
In 2014, Yates Industries continued their expansion into the Southeast by opening a third manufacturing plant in Austell, Georgia, complementing their existing facilities in Decatur, Alabama and Saint Clair Shores, Michigan. This plant has become vital to the future of Yates Industries, as the company continues to grow, not just geographically, but also in terms of customer satisfaction and product innovation.
Yates is proud to announce our latest expansion in Ohio. This facility gives us greater capacity to repair all makes and models of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. We understand that breakdowns don’t always happen during business hours, which is why we offer 24-hour service, as well as pick-up and delivery.
