Competitors — Shop-Weld Tanks

Based on client reviews, TC/BOSS Tank continue to be acknowledged as building the best shop-weld tanks in North America. Our compliments to the BOSS crew and their plant manager, Mike Dreese for attaining this review. Some of you may know Mike from the past. He has about 30 years in the industry, originally as Plant Manager for Schuld and then later for Peabody TecTank.

In shop-weld tank construction, there is a variety of tank construction offered in the industry today. There are a number of suppliers that specialize in flat bottom liquid storage, stainless steel food grade applications, ag designs, etc. TC/BOSS specializes in “dry bulk storage” hopper tanks. In the tank sizes we build, our product differentiation is unique compared to other suppliers:

What separates us from other suppliers:

• Our tank designs are heavier
• Cylinder, deck & hopper welded both sides (double-butt full penetration)
• Increased coating mil thickness (both interior & exterior)
• Best engineering team & application expertise in integrated storage systems
• We are building the most difficult SIT (system installed tank) designs
• We maintain an economies of scale operation
• Midwest fabrication locations, allows us to ship throughout North America
• Competitive price leader due to company vertical integration

Under Construction in Nassau

At TC, all of our employees volunteer for select island projects, especially during the winter months. What dedication!

The project shown is a cement terminal under construction in Nassau. Tank Connection’s RTP (rolled, tapered panel) bolted tank construction is the preferred storage tank design selected by cement companies. It is a proven design that does not develop the leaking problems associated with the older API 12B bolted tank design.

The terminal under construction will support new expansion on the island. In the Bahamas, Nassau is typically referred to as a premier destination. When a storage facility is needed, knowledgeable experts call the premier tank company, Tank Connection.

President’s Review, 3rd Quarter

We would describe the second quarter as just another great quarter. Year to date, TC incoming sales are 10% ahead of plan and our 2011 plan was aggressive. Our congratulations to our sales group, representatives, dealers, OEM and house account clients for posting a continuous strong performance.

As you know, TC is committed to servicing our clients with excellent customer service and the best storage products and services available in the industry today. Our customers count on us to perform and that drives our continuous improvement processes. In storage containment applications, we most certainly lead the industry.

We continue to be the only supplier worldwide that designs, manufactures and installs all types of steel storage tanks and integrated storage systems. To be very direct on this topic, the other players in the tank industry just don’t get it. The bolted tankees don’t understand the field-welded market and the field-welded tankees don’t understand the bolted market. When you understand both markets and add the hybrid features of concrete to the equation, you have the ability to lead the industry with innovative hybrid storage products that are unmatched in performance.

We thank our employees for making our storage products and services the preferred products in the industry. We thank our clients for the opportunity to earn your business through our actions and job performance. At TC, all of our employees always welcome the opportunity to be of service to our our customers. Get excited about the future because we have more new products and services to release soon!
