Bimba Announces New “Blue and Improved” Original Line® Cylinders

University Park, IL – August 6, 2012 – Bimba Manufacturing Company, a provider of pneumatic, hydraulic, and electric solutions, today announced a series of product enhancements to its industry-leading round line, non-repairable Original Line® product series.

These changes include design modifications to further extend the catalog life rating of the cylinders from 1,400 miles to 3,000+ miles, as well as new product labeling and packaging.

“These design enhancements are the culmination of more than three years of product testing and communications with our customers. It will more than double the life of our Original Line®, enhancing the value to our customers of the industry’s hardest working, longest lasting cylinder,” said Jerry Scherzinger, Bimba’s OL Product Marketing Manager. “Additionally, we are updating the look of the cylinder by replacing our 
pre-existing red logo with an updated blue logo, as well as introducing new packaging that will be easier for customers to remove prior to installing our cylinders.

Scott Meldeau, Bimba’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing said, “These changes reflect the aggressive corporate approach Bimba is taking to strengthen our existing products, in addition to developing new products to position us for future growth.”
