Yates Industries Continues Growth, Acquires 40 Year Old Hydraulics Manufacturer

St. Clair Shores, MI - May 2014

Yates Industries, the leading industrial cylinder manufacturer in the Midwest United States, announced they have acquired certain assets of cylinder manufacturer, Georgia Hydraulics International located in Austell, Georgia.

“This is a very exciting time for us here,” said Steve Cavera, Yates Industries National Sales Manager. “With this strategic acquisition we will be able to effectively increase our manufacturing and servicing capabilities.”

Yates Industries main plant is headquartered in Saint Clair Shores, Michigan with a second facility, Yates Industries main plant Yates Cylinders, Alabama Division, located in Decatur. With these two locations, Yates is able to do high-speed turnarounds on cylinder repairs and customized cylinder manufacturing faster than most of its competitors.

Adding the assets from GHI into a new manufacturing facility will broaden Yates’ welded cylinder line capabilities.

“We are definitely poised for future expansion, but what is most important to us is the addition of a comprehensive welded cylinder line providing our customers with more options and better service,” Cavera added.
