Our Story

Cylinders, Inc. - Professional Hydraulic Cylinder Repairs in Chicago Since 1991

In 1991 the founders of Cylinders, Inc. recognized the waste collection and management industry needed a high quality, responsive hydraulic cylinder repair service.  After our opening, our first customers quickly realized the value of quality repairs as an alternative to the replacement of hydraulic components. Many of our first customers are still with us after 30 years, demonstrating the long-term value we have provided and enviable reputation we have earned. Since then our operation expanded to support not only the waste industry, but manufacturing, construction equipment owners, material handling, balers and many other industry sectors. 

What makes Cylinders, Inc. exceptional is our shop team, who have over 70 combined years of experience working together. On average, our team members have been with Cylinders over 11 years, with our most senior machinist celebrating 25 years with the company. We have gained the knowledge and experience of thousands of repairs enabling us to expertly serve our customers. We have a large inventory of seals and stock common steel shapes when fabrication is needed for your repair.
