In the spring of 1972, in a small Detroit location, Yates Industries Incorporated was founded by William H Yates II. Yates Industries began as a distributor of fluid power products and a repair facility for the fluid power industry.
Yates Industries has always been known for quality, consequently, it was a seamless transition to become ISO certified in 2000. We are currently ISO 9001: 2008 certified. With diligent attention to detail and quality, we offer one of the industries best warranty policies. Three years on standard N.F.P.A. mounting style Yates cylinders, one year on custom and special manufactured cylinders, and six months on repaired cylinders.
The twenty-first century has been promising, increasing our customer base and the number of distributors throughout the United States and internationally. We were very excited to introduce the latest additions to our cylinder lines with the YS line of custom round body and welded cylinders, as well as the YRL series static rod locks.
