Auto Industry Inspiration

August 20, 2013

“To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy.  Indeed, life is not measured in years alone, but in achievement.”

That’s a quote from Bruce McLaren, who founded McLaren automotive, one of the most well-known names in the race and general automotive world.  In a recent tribute to their founder on their 50th anniversary, McLaren put together this inspiring video to commemorate the life and work of their founder, and to reaffirm their commitment to his stated goals.

The vibrancy that comes with the pace of the life of a competitive racecar driver serves as an apt and vivid framework for the philosophy of life and work that McLaren espoused – and while we at Yates aren’t often subjected to risks of the same magnitude, the pursuit of excellence that drove McLaren also provides the motive power for our business model.  While our processes are another step removed from the racetracks, our products reflect that same adherence to do things well.

Ever since our beginnings, we have pursued innovation.  We saw a gap in the market for quality cylinders and hydraulic cylinder repair, and filled it.  Once we built a name for ourselves by the quality of our products, we saw the need to expand (and eventually relocate) and streamline our processes to be able to continue to meet the needs of our customers on our own terms of quality and service.   We are ever improving and growing to keep pace and anticipate the needs of our customers and the industries they serve, while still maintaining an industry-leading warranty on our products, in the auto industry, and many other applications.  For more information, or just to get in touch, tweet @YatesCylinders or visit our website today  – we’d love to hear from you.
