11 Nov, 2013
Tank Connection Affiliate Group announced the acquisition of another manufacturing facility in Southeast Kansas. The facility was originally built by Bush Hog Manufacturing, was later occupied by Ruskins Manufacturing, and is located in Galesburg, KS. According to TC President, Bill Neighbors, this acquisition is part of a comprehensive expansion plan that will also include the Parsons, Oswego and Baxter Springs facilities in Kansas.
"This will add over 120,000 square feet of manufacturing space, dedicated to the production of dry bulk and liquid storage systems," stated Neighbors. "This facility will allow us to position the company for aggressive growth with our specialty product lines. We continue to experience significant domestic and international growth in liquid storage applications, due to our proprietary LIQ Fusion 7000 FBE TM coating system. This high-tech coating system is the #1 liquid immersion coating for steel tanks storing water and wastewater. The performance is unmatched worldwide."
Tank Connection is a global leader in dry bulk and liquid storage applications. The company is approaching their 10-year anniversary in early 2014. Tank Connection originally started with three employees and has grown to over 300 employees in SE Kansas. TCAG storage products are manufactured only in the U.S., but are shipped and installed worldwide.
