New Year, New Facilities at Yates

February 22, 2013

Everyone at Yates is excited about our new repair facilities. Though we didn’t have to move too far – the new building is just next door – it is a big deal for us. This massive and beautiful new facility has given the repair department 3x the amount of space, allowing us consolidate our industry leading cylinder repair services all under one roof. All of our repair machinery and personnel made the short trip to the new facility, which also features more overhead and jib cranes. Of course, this move also clears up space in our original building for new manufacturing capabilities. This includes more room for raw materials, extra machining areas, and shipping and receiving.

Moreover, it is not just in St. Clair Shores, MI; Yates’ South facility located in Decatur, AL is also experiencing some big changes. We are half-way through construction of a new facility (triple the size of a current space!) which should be completed near the end of March. The massive state-of-the-art facility will include high ceilings, huge overhead cranes, and new machinery, all of which will allow us to handle larger sizes and lengths and offer quicker turnaround times.

2013 is going to be an exciting year at Yates. We are just thrilled to be able to bring our cylinder production and repair expertise to a wider audience thanks to our new and expanded facilities. If you want to learn more about our overall expansion, drop us a line today.
