Tank Connection, with headquarters in Parsons, Kansas, is expanding its manufacturing facilities in the southeastern part of the state with investments in additional equipment and personnel. The company that engineers, fabricates and installs products for both liquid and dry bulk markets has five facilities in Baxter Springs, Oswego, and Galesburg, Kansas.
Company officials said recent and planned future equipment expansions, along with the need for approximately 35 new employees, will allow the storage tank manufacturer to expand production by 50 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014. With the addition of new associates the firm’s workforce will reach upwards of 400 employees.
"We are making investments in both capital assets and new personnel in order to meet demand for our products." Vince Horton, VP Sales Tank Connection, continues, "Our markets are strong and we offer the best bolted tank in the industry to fulfill the expectations of our clients. The current and future outlook remains extremely positive for all of our product lines, including Shop-Welded Tanks, Field-Welded Tanks, Hybrid Storage Tanks and Aluminum Dome Covers."
"The ability to leverage hard working and ethical individuals from our surrounding communities has assisted in continuing the growth of our organization," states Shane Nash, VP Operations Tank Connection. "The old adage of 'An employee is your greatest asset' holds true for Tank Connection. We wouldn't be looking to add additional workforce if we didn't believe strongly in the value of the employee."
