NFPA Staff Visits Peninsular Cylinders in Roseville, Michigan

Peninsular LogoWhile in the greater Detroit area for the 2016 Detroit Regional Meeting, a few of us from NFPA stopped by to visit Peninsular Cylinder Company, an NFPA member since 2002. Peninsular Cylinder Company manufactures NFPA and metric pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, 1 1/2″ to 24″ bore and 40mm to 500mm bore sizes, plus all related accessories. The company is also a repair house for NFPA and metric cylinders. Recently, Peninsular became a subsidiary of AVIS Industrial Corporation and subsequently has greatly expanded their production space and capabilities.  Peninsular Cylinders can be found in a wide variety of end-use markets and because of this diversity, the company has developed a unique “Cylinder Configurator” web tool that helps customers find the right product for their specific needs, complete with downloads to CAD systems and 2D drawings with dimensions included. Peninsular Cylinders regularly has representatives attend the Detroit Regional meetings and the NFPA Industry & Economic Outlook Conference. They are also supporters of NFPA’s workforce development efforts and have contributed to the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation.
