CAB has established itself as a supplier of choice in the hydraulic cylinder and rotary actuator industry. With extensive experience supplying more than 600 different components utilizing ANSI rated materials, our product categories continue to grow within the group of construction grade and integrated cylinders.
Product categories include cast, forged, and machined Lug Bases, Rod Clevises, Heads, Glands, Pistons and Gears, Cylinder Rods, Valve Blocks, and Fabricated Cylinder Housings. Products supplied by CAB serve end users in the mining, construction, aerial lift, and marine industries among others.
Our extensive experience with forging and casting combined with our in-house engineering and design capabilities, helps customers identify the best manufacturing process for their products. In some cases, our analysis may lead to fabrication-to-casting or casting-to-forging conversions which can result in significant cost savings and reduction in lead time. CAB’s unique ability to machine sun valve cavities and offer effective product solutions has driven CAB's continued growth in this industry (600% revenue growth over the past 10 years).
CAB's in-depth knowledge of ANSI rated material grades and equivalents helps provide our growing customer base with engineering alternatives that offer cost saving potential to their end customers including longer cylinder life and better wear characteristics.
CAB has an extensive network of established ISO and IATF 16949 certified factories whose primary equipment and processes are geared to the manufacture of cylinder components. This means that CAB can match the facility's production strengths and knowledge to our customers' needs. This, combined with our in-country quality engineers, allows us to offer our customer base the best solution that truly lowers overall "Total Cost of Ownership".
Our full service warehousing and distribution facilities, centrally located in Nacogdoches, Texas (2hrs north of Houston) and Fife, Washington (40mins south of Seattle) further adds to our ability to support our customer needs.
