Water Under the Bridge: A Final Look at 2016

Here we are at the close of another year. 2016 has been great for us – dedicated to serving our customers with the industrial supplies they need to be successful. So, in honor of tradition, let’s take a look back at the highlights of what happened over the past 12 months.

We started the new year emphasizing the benefits of our custom machining capabilities. Loyal customers relayed horror stories of working with untrustworthy suppliers who claimed modified stock parts were custom items. At Caylor, when we say custom, we mean custom!  We started 2016 with our consumers’ satisfaction in mind, and we tend to keep it that way.

In April we focused on Earth Day and the importance of proper wastewater treatment. Our products excel as a necessity in this type of industry. The tough conditions of treatment plants are no match for the reliable and durable parts we produce and deliver.

We were very proud to introduce state-of-the-art products to our ever expanding warehouse inventory. The Caribou Coolers and Tumblers and biodegradable gloves improve the comfort levels of contractors and workers. These products, new to Caylor, are ideal for all industries and let us deliver something to make your day a little more pleasant.

As the pages of our book turn towards the end of the year, we wanted you to get to know both our company and our hometown a little bit more. Our September, October, and November blogs examine Dalton, Georgia, the recycling industry,  and how we contribute to the growth of U.S. manufacturing. These blogs sum up our year and our intentions extremely well – we are dedicated to both local and national manufacturing operations, delivering the materials you need to be successful.

As 2016 finishes up, we’d like to wish all of our customers and those in the industries we serve very Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year!

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.
