ZAYTRAN was founded in 1980 to provide the market with large capacity hydraulic valves. The standardization of castings and CNC Cell Machining permitted ZAYTRAN to efficiently deliver this class of products to hydraulic integrators. The founding team is best known for having started Manatrol, now a division of Parker Hannifin.

In 1984 the company shifted focus from valves to automation products with the introduction of precision grippers and actuators. Currently ZAYTRAN holds the number one market share in several automotive product lines as well as the production of integrated circuits. ZAYTRAN’s significant customer base is comprised of automation integrators who work in every major industry from hard disk fabrication to aircraft manufacturing.
