ATEC Steel Acquires New Manufacturing Plant

Tank Connection Affiliate Group, Parsons, KS – Announced today that their affiliate company, ATEC Steel has acquired a 60,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Baxter Springs, KS. ATEC Steel is an industry leader in field-weld tank fabrication, specialty steel construction and field construction services in North America. ATEC currently maintains two other facilities including a 100,000 sq. ft., state-of-the- art manufacturing facility in Baxter Springs, KS, and a 55,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Gardena, CA. This new addition will allow expansion of their specialty steel construction and pressure vessel product lines. ATEC products and services are routinely specified in the power, petroleum, water and wastewater, minerals and mining industries.

Tank Connection and ATEC Steel are vertically integrated companies, which promotes their global position as competitive price leaders. Starting with steel procurement at the mill and finishing with construction services in the field, all value-added design, manufacturing, project management, system integration and field installation services are performed by company personnel.

“While other companies have been scaling back, we are investing in the future of U.S. manufactured storage products,” stated Noel Garrett, president of ATEC Steel. “Currently, we are in the middle of an expansion project of installing a rail spur into our facility, which allows us to receive steel directly from the mill.” Globally, our clients tout “American Made” as the best capital equipment that can be purchased and that really says it all.”

ATEC’s new plant addition will allow them to expand their specialty steel product lines as well as their coating applications. ATEC is compliant with API 620, API 650, API 653, AWWA D100 and other national and international codes. ATEC also maintains ASME “S”, “U”, “PP”, and NBIC “R” code stamp certifications.

TCAG currently includes 6 manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and employs over 400 employees. Their international dealer and rep network has expanded to cover all global regions.
