The Saylor-Beall Plant
Saylor-Beall’s state of the art manufacturing facility uses eight computer numerically controlled machining centers to form our cylinders, crankshafts, connecting rods, crankcases, cylinder heads, intercoolers and manifolds as well as other parts that make up our air compressor pumps. This advanced equipment improves quality while reducing costs.



Saylor-Beall employs a progressive scheduling system that builds subcomponents to stock, but releases final assemblies on individual orders. The result is a system that ships orders more quickly than the competition, while minimizing inventory.

What Makes Saylor-Beall Quality?
Through our on-going program for continuous improvement, Saylor-Beall has developed better materials, designs and manufacturing processes. This has resulted in an outstanding line of quality air compressors that meets the needs of the most rugged applications.

Why We Sell Through Distributors

The distributor takes into account your cost of power, operations, maintenance and repairs in addition to any special requirements you may have.
