Norris Cylinder, a TriMas company, is now officially a “Made in the USA” designated manufacturer.

A manufacturer of compressed high- and low-pressure steel and acetylene cylinders, the company’s products are used for the storage and transportation of compressed industrial gases.

With state-of-the-art manufacturing locations in Longview, Texas, and Huntsville, Alabama, Norris boasts a complete line of small, intermediate, and large seamless steel high-pressure cylinders, welded DOT and ISO acetylene cylinders, as well as stainless steel and nickel cylinders for specialty gas applications.

While the cylinders are “Made in the USA”, Norris’ approximately 300 employees service customers globally, with a strategic focus on quality, product development and compliance with worldwide standards.

Celebrating its new recognition, Thomas Amato, TriMas President and CEO, said, “For more than 70 years, Norris Cylinder has provided a strong commitment to providing customer solutions with demonstrated quality and exceptional service to the compressed industrial gas industry.”

“We believe this important step to recognise our Made in the USA status is a win for our customers, employees and the communities where we operate. We are pleased to continue to support our stakeholders by further investing in Norris Cylinder manufacturing operations in the US, which continues to advance local skills and technology development.”

 Prior to achieving its new status, Norris was the only remaining manufacturer of forged steel high pressure cylinders and acetylene cylinders located in the US.

Chuck Manz, President of Norris Cylinder, added, “As a Made in the USA manufacturer, we are able to assure our customers that all of their gas packaging and safety requirements are locally addressed.”

“We manufacture in Texas and Alabama, and source virtually all of our materials or components from other US manufacturers, thereby cascading our commitment to the US workforce, and maintaining more control over lead times and quality.”
