CST Industries Combines Two Companies to Form CST Storage

New company will continue to produce storage tanks

CST Industries announced the realignment of Engineered Storage Products Co. (ESPC) and Columbian Tec Tank (CTT) to form a storage solutions provider under a new company name: CST Storage.

Veteran tank manufacturer ESPC is a producer of glass-fused-to-steel tanks sold under the brand names Aquastore, Harvestore and Slurrystore, and Columbian Tec Tank is a producer of epoxy-coated and other modular bolted steel tanks and silos used in a variety of industries since 1893. The companies’ combined coating technologies, engineering and design expertise will provide customers greater options and the ability to choose a storage system that will best perform to their unique specifications.

“The new company CST Storage reflects our position as the complete storage system provider for engineering and manufacturing professionals 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.”

CST Storage will continue to manufacture glass-fused-to-steel and epoxy-coated modular steel storage tanks in its DeKalb, Ill., Parsons, Kan., and Winchester, Tenn. facilities while corporate headquarters for the new company will be in Lenexa, Kan. The company has engineering centers of excellence in all four locations to service its customers and channels of distribution.
