Canadian tank trailer manufacturer completes acquisition of Keltic Tank, establishes new Keltic North inspection and repair facility serving customers in Northern Ontario

Dependable Truck and Tank Limited, based in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, recently completed the acquisition of Keltic Tank and Meter in Woodstock, Ontario, and jointly opened a new Keltic North facility serving Northern Ontario.

“The acquisition of Keltic Tank and Meter by Dependable Truck and Tank marks a strategic milestone in our company’s journey,” Michael Natale, Dependable Truck and Tank director of regulatory affairs, told Bulk Transporter. “It is a testament to our commitment to growth and excellence, allowing us to broaden our horizons and better serve our customers across Ontario.”

Keltic North, established this year, is the result of the successful merger of the two companies, who boast more than 75 years of combined experience in manufacturing and servicing over-the-road tankers. The combination marries their considerable expertise and resources, leading to the “birth of a new and dynamic company,” they reported.

The new facility will provide inspections, testing, and repair services for both specification and non-specification highway and portable tanks. All three locations are registered with Transport Canada’s Dangerous Goods division to work with petroleum tankers, and Dependable also is registered with Transport Canada as a tank manufacturer.

Their locations are as follows:

  • Dependable Truck and Tank: 275 Clarence St., Brampton, Ontario L6W 3R3
  • Keltic Tank and Meter: 1256 Parkinson Rd., Woodstock, Ontario N4V 0A2
  • Keltic North: 5400 Highway 11 North, North Bay, Ontario P1B 8G3

“This acquisition represents a synergy of expertise and resources, strengthening our position as a trusted leader in the tanker truck industry,” said James Nothof, Keltic Tank and Meter general manager. “Together, we look forward to setting new standards in safety, quality, and compliance.”
