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.

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.

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.

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.

There is very little interpretation available for something so concrete.

Sprinkler Systems Can Help to Conserve Water in Drought-Stricken States

Water, irrigation and drought are popular news topics in 2015, and rightly so. “California is facing an unprecedented water crisis, with 98 percent of the state experiencing some level of drought, and 44 percent experiencing extreme drought,” says Anthony LaFetra, Drought NYT Article ImagePresident of Rain Bird Corporation, manufacturers of irrigation products, in a statement on the company’s website. In April this year, California Governor Jerry Brown ordered the first-ever mandatory statewide water rationing. A recent New York Times article quotes Governor Brown as saying, “We are embarked upon an experiment that no one has ever tried,” regarding his mandate that Californians cut their water use by 25 percent.

In his statement on the Rain Bird website, LaFetra also says that, according to the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA), more than half of all residential water use in California takes place outdoors. He adds, “The ACWA also estimates that California residents tend to over-water outdoor plants and lawns by as much as 60 percent. These statistics indicate a tremendous opportunity to use this valuable resource more efficiently throughout California and the rest of the world.” LaFetra also says that Governor Brown’s mandate “has brought a long-standing issue to the forefront of the state’s consciousness—perhaps even to the world’s. The conversation has finally turned from how we should use less water to how we must use less water.” This is where and how sprinkler systems and irrigation products can help to conserve water in California and other drought-stricken states.

It’s not just California that is experiencing a drought, and it’s not just today, in 2015, that officials are worried about: Drought conditions are predicted to impact a large part of the country in the coming decades, too. A recent study by scientists from NASA, Columbia University and Cornell University predicts that there is a Nat Geo Drought Image“megadrought” on its way. As reported by National Geographic, the study says “the chances of a 35-year or longer ‘megadrought’ striking the Southwest and central Great Plains by 2100 are above 80 percent if the world stays on its current trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions.” Looking ahead, and right now, water conservation needs to be taken seriously.

When it comes to conserving water resources, residences and commercial properties, plus businesses and industries that rely on irrigation systems to get their jobs done, can all use their irrigation and sprinkler systems to their advantage and comply with mandatory regulations regarding water use, when necessary. Irrigation systems can help everyone use water wisely, and use water efficiently. At Caylor Industrial, we supply the necessary valves, parts and components for the installation and maintenance of water-efficient irrigation systems for homes, schools, parks, sports fields, golf courses, businesses, farms, and any location with a sprinkler system or an irrigation system. Contact us with any questions you may have, or visit our online catalog to find the irrigation valves, fittings and parts you need.

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.
