On January 9, 2013 Avis Industrial Corporation completed its acquisition of the Peninsular Cylinder Company located in Roseville, Michigan.
Peninsular has been manufacturing hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders for over 60 years. Up until 2000, Peninsular manufactured cylinders exclusively for the automotive industry. In year 2002 the company made a decision to transition its business away from the automotive marketplace into non automotive target market areas where destructive and harsh manufacturing environments exist. The results have been staggering. You can now find Peninsular cylinders in industries such as oil and gas, wood processing, foundries, plastic injection molding, stamping, marine, food processing and a variety of other industries throughout the world.
Peninsular also offers 3 to 5 day delivery for its standard line of 1 1/2” to 8” bore NFPA cylinders. Rapid delivery on these high quality standard cylinders reduces customer downtime because of the shorter waiting time to receive both the cylinder quotation and the cylinder itself.
In addition to the NFPA and METRIC standard cylinders (steel and aluminum), Peninsular manufactures mill grade cylinders, custom designed cylinders, welded cylinders, cylinder accessories and large bore cylinders ranging up to 24” and 500mm bores.
In addition, electronic interfaces such as LVDT transducers and proximity switches can be optionally designed into all Peninsular cylinders. Peninsular also offers a Cylinder Configurator, at no charge to its customers, that is accessible from Peninsular’s web site. This configurator produces 3-D solid model downloads, 2-dementional prints including dimensions, for any cylinder configured along with corresponding cylinder part numbers and repair kit and accessory part numbers, thus, simplifying the ordering and design process at the user level.
