Quala recently expanded its nationwide network with newly acquired locations on the East and West Coasts.
The two new additions—Southern Tank Services in Jacksonville, Fla., and Totally Tanker Interiors in Tulare, Calif.—will allow the Florida-based provider of tank trailer cleaning, test, and repair services to assist fleets in growing markets, Quala said.
“By adding locations on both the East and West Coasts, we are better able to service these growing markets,” said Erik Leto, Quala’s chief operating officer.
“In terms of capacity in Jacksonville, the addition of five cleaning bays will significantly improve quality and turnaround times for our customers in this market. And Quala is excited to enter the foodgrade cleaning market in California. With the addition of a dedicated foodgrade facility in central California, Quala will be better able to service customers transporting food-related products across California and throughout the West Coast.
“Additionally, we plan to expand foodgrade capabilities in this market.”
With the addition of Southern Tank, a large, conveniently located facility in North Jacksonville, QUala more than doubles its capacity in the market, the company said. The five-bay, kosher-certified wash rack services a full range of chemical products, including polymers. Trailer washout and box wash services also are available. The maintenance facility offers a full range of testing, inspections, and repairs for tankers, ISOs, trailers, and chassis.
With the acquisition of Totally Tanker Interiors, Quala enters the foodgrade cleaning market in California. This facility was started in San Joaquin Valley in 2003 in response to the need for a safer and higher quality of tanker washouts in the region, Quala said.
