About Day Piston Company

Founded in 1919, by William Day in Cleveland, OH, Day Piston has always focused on providing high quality pistons used in the Automotive market and Air Compressor equipment.  At one time the company made Model A pistons used in the iconic Henry Ford car.   The company remained within the Day Family, passing the business to William's son Floyd and eventually to his grandson Myron.   The company outgrew its original location on Harvard Avenue and move to its present location on Saint Catherine Avenue.   This facility was expanded in the late 1980's to include a modern warehouse and quality laboratory.  Fourth generation family member Clyde "Skip" Jones has been a key member of the team for over 40 years working in Operations Management. 

In September of 2022, with Myron Day's approval the company transitioned to new privately held ownership group that is committed to serving its current customers, but also growing opportunities for its team members. 

Day Piston's core values include the "Health" of our colleagues, stakeholders, partners and community.

Focusing on Physical - Spiritual - Mental - Environmental - Financial Health as well as reputation and relationships.
