 A brief history of Yates Industries

      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.   With an ever-increasing customer base, Yates Industries purchased the Horace G. Preston Company, a local leader in the packing and seal industry, to better serve its customers.  Moving into a  larger facility became a necessity, so operations were moved into a 30,000 sq.ft. facility located on 9 Mile Road in St Clair Shores, Michigan.

     Due to our early involvement with the local steel mills and the auto industry we realized the need for a high quality, competitively priced cylinder line.  In early 1975 the Yates Cylinder Division was created to provide heavy duty N.F.P.A cylinders to our local customers.  Into the late 70’s our cylinder line expanded to include both medium duty hydraulic and steel pneumatic products.

    In the early 80's, Yates Industries purchased three honing companies which increased our efficiencies and allowed us to economically repair cylinders, even  on an emergency basis, without sacrificing quality.
