In 1952, Harvey Sheffer founded Sheffer Engineering with an eye on innovation and a goal of becoming a world-leading supplier and manufacturer of cylinders and actuators. He set out to give customers exactly what they wanted – and more importantly, what they needed – in an industry where mass-produced, generic solutions were the norm. Today, the Sheffer name is still synonymous with pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders of the highest quality, respected worldwide for dependable performance, guaranteed reliability and personal service.
Throughout our history, we’ve been leaders in developing and implementing breakthrough product innovations – the first to install continuous feedback devices on position control cylinders for such prestigious customers as NASA. Then and now, we have demanded nothing less than a constant commitment to anticipate, meet and exceed customer expectations through innovation, accuracy and reliability from all facets of our organization.
While we’re on the cutting edge of modern cylinder production and technology, our business is still run on a simple principle – the idea that a handshake can stand as a solid promise. We’ve operated on this basis since our founding, and while our number one priority has always been the production of top-quality hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, we believe maintaining the highest level of integrity with our customers, suppliers and employees is the cornerstone of our business.
