About YVEL

YVEL knows hydraulic latches, mechanical latches and other locking mechanisms better than anyone.

Since we opened our doors almost 90 years ago, YVEL has grown to become the recognized industry leader in innovative locking systems for vehicles. We design, manufacture and deliver mechanical and hydraulic locks and latches to leading commercial and off-highway OEMs around the world — including Volvo, Renault, Scania, Iveco, Kamaz, DAF, Dennis Eagle, Ashok Leyland and more.

Our extensive product portfolio includes locks, strikers, cremone systems, conical and bolt locks, handles, hinges, and other locking mechanisms. Along with offering a standard product line, we can customize a locking system to your exact specifications that easily integrates into your vehicle design. Often, YVEL engineers become part of a customer’s design team, working with you every step of the way to ensure you have the smartest, most cost-effective solution for your application.

YVEL’s hydraulic and mechanical lock systems are widely relied upon by OEMs around the world as cab tilt solutions in trucks, buses, coaches, and trailers. Our powerful locking mechanisms enhance safety, reliability, and efficiency in a full range of off-highway vehicles, including forklifts, earth movers, compactors, drill rigs, excavators, fire and rescue vehicles, tractors and snowplows.
