CST merges storage tank veterans

Several longstanding brands of storage tanks for water and other fluids are to be merged to form a new coated modular-steel storage-tank company name.

CST Industries Inc is to merge Engineered Storage Products Company (ESPC) and Columbian Tec Tank (CTT) to form CST Storage.

ESPC has been a producer of glass-fused-to-steel tanks sold under the brand names Aquastore, Harvestore and Slurrystore, while CTT has produced epoxy-coated and other modular bolted steel tanks and silos used in a variety of industries since 1893.

In combination, says CST, these two companies comprise the global leader in the design, manufacture, and installation of factory-coated modular-steel storage tanks.

“The new company CST Storage reflects our position as the complete storage system provider in thousands of different industries and applications throughout the world,” said Brian Bauerbach, president and CEO of CST. “The combination of these two companies, teamed with our undisputed leadership in aluminum tank covers from our TemcorConservatek division and our recent acquisition of Weaver reclaimer technology offers our customers the most complete storage and handling system options available for their varied applications.”
