Yates Cylinders was proud to participate in this year’s AISTech Conference, held in Columbus, OH, on May 6 through 9.

What Is AISTech?

AISTech is an annual Iron & Steel Technology Conference and Exposition that typically features over 500 exhibitors and attracts thousands of attendees worldwide.

During the conference, the attendees, including steel mill workers, engineers, OEMs, MRO suppliers, and students, have the opportunity to network with exhibitors, learn from industry leaders, and build long-lasting relationships.

This year’s show was AIST’s biggest yet, featuring 462 technical presentations about environmental technology, secondary refining, plate rolling, and other topics, as well as 687 exhibiting companies, including Yates Cylinders. Over 8,000 people from 46 countries attended the conference, which made it one of AIST’s most successful shows thus far.

Yates Cylinders teamed up with two Michigan natives, Jacob Kablak from Pterobyt, a graphic design agency, and Jimi Plouffe, CEO of Momentum, a digital marketing agency, to create an eye-catching display in Exhibit Hall Entrances A and B.

In addition to this advertising feature, Yates Cylinders set up a 20 x 20-foot exhibition (with a kegerator) promoting its hydraulic cylinder manufacturing and repair services, and customization abilities to attendees. Yates Cylinders was also among the 12 sponsors who gave away a brand new, fully loaded 2024 Chevy Silverado truck to several lucky participants.
