YATES Factory Tour


YATES GEAR has been in business now just over thirty years, we have always been located here in the center of Northern California. YATES GEAR has resided in its current Redding, California location for over 15 years. We started out in the back 5,000 sq. ft of this building. Over the years as we grew, we took over more and more of the space. Currently we operate in three different buildings on this location which span over 30,000 Sq. ft.

YATES GEAR currently has employees almost 60 personnel in our production facility. We pride ourselves in producing US Made products and by supplying valuable jobs to our local Northern California community.

YATES GEAR currently operates over 85 various types of sewing machine equipment. Many of the machines used for harness production are highly specialized computer controlled machines.
