Western Global acquires Transtank

By Western Global   


t68Nov. 12, 2014 - Western Global has announced that it has completed its acquisition of Transtank PTY. This friendly and mutual deal includes all divisions, operating assets, and product lines.

Transtank is an Australian headquartered manufacturer of containerized tanks and storage systems, serving a broad customer base of upstream oil & gas, mining, and power generation companies. Founded in 2000, Transtank operates out of four facilities in Australia and has regional offices in Canada and South Africa.  Technically competitors prior to this move, the diversity of the product lines and traditional territories covered have surprisingly little overlap that provide a natural and immediate fit for these two companies to come together. 

“We are excited about the acquisition of Transtank and the continued growth we know it will provide,” said Rob Critchley CEO of Western Global. “The combination of our product portfolios and technical expertise will further strengthen the quality service and efficiency driven, innovative products we supply. ”

Combining the strengths of Western Global and Transtank provides access to a full range of storage and dispensing products, solutions and services. This includes Western’s popular TRANSCUBE, and now the TRANSTANK range of containerized fuel tanks. Both Western customers, and previous Transtank customers will benefit from this powerful combination of strengths and product lines.  The new Western Global ensures an extensive technical and application support network to back all clients across the globe.
