Caylor Industrial is Already Paving the way Through 2017

Being a full-scale industrial supplier of critical parts across all industries like valves, fittings, pipe and tube hangers, our team works day in and day out because business never sleeps.

Shining as a leader in the field for over 35 years, Caylor Industrial Sales has not only met the need to adapt and upgrade according to market trends but has also held tight to our heritage of being a family run operation without compromising values.

What Caylor Will be Focusing on in 2017?

Here at Caylor we have built a formidable reputation on continuous improvement of performance, honing of existing skills, and remaining competitive by offering the latest components industry wide. We aren’t satisfied unless our work is precise with a fast turnaround to our clients every single time.

In 2017, apart from continuing to forge stronger ties with buyers through steady supply of the stock parts on its roster, Caylor will also strategically focus on the assets of custom machining and distribution of carbon steel, stainless steel, steel, brass & bronze.

Metal machining to create durable, corrosion resistant tailored parts is a service that is set to be in high demand through 2018. Breakthroughs in aviation and telemedicine – including the ability to manipulate robotic arms to carry our remotely guided surgeries are radically revising what companies want and demand of machined parts. Not only do the pieces need to be accurately crafted, but they must also be light and possess high weight to strength ratio to help parts bear use in extenuating circumstances. We have offer both conventional and CNC capabilities and constantly strive to keep up with current market trends, providing well machined, high longevity units to reliably perform JIT and 24*7 delivery of consignments all year round.

In short, Caylor is poised to be a cognizant partner to businesses in engineering, maintenance, and construction and will continue to study the trends on the horizon to help customers get ahead of competition through the use of uniquely tailored, perfect fit parts.

You can stay apprised of custom machining updates and news by following Caylor on Twitter & LinkedIn.

From the Caylor Industrial team, we hope you all have a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year – we look forward to working with you on your 2017 needs!

As a Preferred Industrial Supplier Caylor Supports National Manufacturing Day this October

Caylor has been redefining industrial supplies for almost 36 years now! A family owned operation that has ties with industries like maintenance, engineering, construction and general contracting Caylor stands for precision, finesses, unparalleled skills, attention to detail, just in time deliveries and the ability to machine parts to custom specifications in a fast and cost effective way.

How Has Caylor Contributed to the Growth of US Manufacturing?

Caylor is a rare business that has mastered the use of forms and dies to create standardized parts serving bulk orders and also boasts top of the line capabilities in the field of tailoring products to serve industry specific needs. Caylor brings the best of two advantages together.

On one hand we are a market-recognized distributor of high quality alloys like carbon steel, stainless steel, steel, brass and bronze. On the other we adeptly leverage our expertise in techniques like milling, grinding, machining, welding, punching, shearing and drilling to create custom shapes covering angles, channels, bars, tubing, pipes, valves, fittings, flanges, zees, plates, sheets, coils & beams.

The businesses that work with us have the privilege of partnering with a provider who has complete control over all aspects of the items produced. Problems like raw material shortage, chipping of machined parts and deviance from specs do not plague consignments because we also act as a responsible distributor.

Caylor Industrial Sales has equipped clients with the ability to be agile in an ever changing market. We operate with the confidence of knowing that critical parts and assembly items will always reach them on time and in budget. This is an assurance worth a million dollars especially for businesses with interdependent production lines.

Caylor’s Sentiments about National Manufacturing Day:

Officially recognized as the most concerted manufacturing and production centric event on a national scale, Manufacturing Day generally falls on the first Friday of every October. This year it happens to be the 7th.

National Manufacturing Day relies on the involvement and participation of producers from all over the country who work with schools and colleges to throw open their inner working, their factory floors and the career opportunities available with them to young aspirants in an attempt to present the real picture to these workers of tomorrow.

The US is facing a Skill Gap that is widening by the year. Unless students realize that manufacturing as an alternative is a better paying, more secure and technically challenging prospect than most other careers, the Golden Era of manufacturing will not dawn in earnest.

Caylor supports this movement wholeheartedly. We have always upheld transparency in operations as a fundamental value and cherish our legacy of being a vital cog in manufacturing’s machine.

Industry Outlooks for 2016

The past few years have seen positive growth in many industries and 2016 is expected to continue this path as industries such as construction and manufacturing continue to rebound after the recession.

Both manufacturing and construction are expected to see growth in 2016. The MAPI Foundation’s report on manufacturing expects the industry to see 3.9% growth in 2016 on the combination of job growth and higher demand for replacement equipment. New construction starts are predicted to rise 6% in 2016 as the industry continues to expand.

The oil and gas industry has seen a drop in prices, but not yet a significant drop in production. Although the analysts are still out on how low prices can go, production is not falling and they expect to see prices rebound later in the year.

No matter what the experts say, industry will always need high quality parts and services to keep performing at optimal levels. At Caylor, we are the suppliers who provide the best there is in valves, fittings, and pipe and tube hanging components that serve in manufacturing, construction, and domestic energy production applications.

In manufacturing, piping and process systems rely on our products to ensure production continues to run smoothly and efficiently. With our custom machining services we also provide machined parts, valve brackets, turned parts, milled parts, grinded parts, pins, rods, and welded parts to meet precise specifications. Any application involving steam or water can benefit from the products we provide.

The Final Word on 2015

Yes, another 12 months have come and gone and we are about to end another year. This year was busy, successful, and interesting as the economy and manufacturing enjoyed modest growth and a sense of stability. Our connections to a wide range of industries (construction, manufacturing, plumbing, oil, electrical) and applications throughout all industrial sectors, enables us to interact with broad user base.

Over this past year we have reached out to our readers through our monthly blog posts to “talk” about general industry trends, specialized topics, and information regarding our products. The blog is our way to cover a wide range of topics we feel are important to our customers and a modern way to connect. We have featured topics on saving water (preventing leaks and using sprinkler systems) during summer drought conditions and preventing heat loss (benefits of pipe insulation) in winter.

Electricians benefited from a post about safety and proper fittings and conduit and in June we highlighted National Safety Month. To help construction workers and contractors be more productive, this post showcased industrial hardware and tools that improve organization and help meet the demands of the industry. Being a family owned and operated business means we consistently work toward providing the highest quality service and products to every customer. We explained our business ethics in this post.

We are thankful for the opportunity to serve our customers and their industries with top-quality valves, fittings, and pipe and tube hanging supplies. From the Caylor family to yours, we wish you all the best. Happy Holidays!

Ethics Drive Our Business Philosophy and Approach at Caylor Industrial Sales

Say the word “ethics” and the varied reactions you get depend on Ethics blog image 3how an individual defines the word, their own beliefs on right versus wrong, and the execution to the approach of getting something done the “right” way. Say the word “ethics” in regards to industrial supply warehouses that offer valves, fittings, pipes, tube hangers, and other industrial hardware, and you get the gist of how we run business at Caylor Industrial Sales. There is very little interpretation available for something so concrete. In fact, BusinessDictionary.com defines “ethics” as “the basic concepts and fundamental principles of decent human conduct.” In other words, how we treat one another, and the type of quality service we provide.

Blue Monster Thread Seal Tape

At Caylor Industrial Sales, Inc., we’re known for supplying the highest quality valves, fittings, and pipe & tube hangers available anywhere. Our customers rely on them, and on knowing they’ll always get the best.

But that’s not all we supply.

In fact, we’re regularly adding new products, particularly those that we know will meet the same level of quality our clients have come to expect, while making their lives easier.

Blue-Monster-Big-Thread-Seal-Tape-DisplayOne product that we’ve recently started carrying has taken off incredibly. Blue Monster PTFE Thread Seal Tape is a general-purpose tape that comes in a monstrous roll, and has equally monstrous benefits.

This exceptionally strong PTFE resin tape is ideal for large thread applications, and since fewer wraps are needed for a leak-proof seal, less is used—saving money in the process. There’s less waste, and no re-taping is ever necessary; easily application adds to the Monster Tape advantages.

The secret behind its success is its polymer construction, consisting of recurring tetrafluroethylene monomers that make it inert and compatible with an extremely wide array of materials. Iron, copper, brass, galvanized steel, fiberglass…Blue Monster Tape can be used on all of these, and more.

And no matter what your pipes are carrying, Blue Monster can safely and effectively be used. This includes—but is not limited to—acids, hydrogen, jet fuels, alcohols, ammonia, ketones, natural gas, compressed air, steam, hydraulic fluids, and a long list of varying oils. Finally, the 2” wide, 1,429” long roll fits large applications, and lasts an extremely long time.

Chances are, if you’ve got a thread that needs sealing, Blue Monster will meet your needs and save you time and money along the way.

Don’t Let Your Water Heater Become a Headache

We all have a water heater yet most of us rarely give them much thought. We turn on the tap and hot water comes out. They are sometimes big, sometimes not, hidden in the basement, a utility closet, or a garage. Water heaters are one of the unsung heroes of modern comfort that we can’t live without.

Hot_water_heater_with_pipeIdeally water heater maintenance should be performed every six months but, well, you know…

So as we head into the depths of winter it’s a good time to consider giving the water heater a once over. Recognizing a problem is the first step to preventing a large problem from occurring. What could be a potential problem? Anytime the water heater is not delivering hot water to a faucet is a problem.

Before a problem occurs it’s a good idea to visually inspect the water heater. An easy problem to recognize is water around the tank. This would signal that the tank is leaking, probably from faulty water supply connections or corrosion. Replacing these fittings and connections with top quality products will solve the problem.

Another simple maintenance task is to check the pressure relief valve. This valve must be in proper working order in case the tank over-pressurizes. Testing the valve to make sure it works properly is the safety feature to prevent the tank from exploding.

Finally, keep an eye on the location of the tank and the temperatures. If the piping to the water heater freezes and bursts, the problems are much bigger than not having hot water. If frigid temps are threatening, wrapping pipes with heat tape and leaving a faucet dripping may prevent the headache of a burst pipe.

As a full service industrial supplier of valves, fittings, and structural steel & metal alloys we are the experts in helping our customers prevent any of the above problems from causing serious damage to homes and businesses. We supply a full line of top-quality parts and components from all the leading manufacturers.

Let Caylor help you with any winter piping and plumbing problems.
