May 17, 2017

Quala, North America’s leader in bulk transportation container cleaning, announced its agreement to acquire Action Resources’ tank wash rack in Hanceville AL.

“The purchase of Action Resources’ third-party tank wash in Hanceville is a strong strategic decision which enables Quala to expand our service network in the Southeast,” said Eric Speiser, vice-president of sales and marketing at Quala. “This location will grant easy access for our customers in the nearby Huntsville, Birmingham, and Atlanta Markets.”

Aaron Thompson, vice-president of maintenance and purchasing at Action Resources, said: “The sale of the tank wash facilities will allow Action Resources to focus on our core competency of trucking, while entrusting a key piece of our business to a trusted partner.” 

Mike Bauer, chief executive officer of Quala, said : “Central and Northern Alabama previously lacked significant options for third-party tank cleaning. We’re tremendously excited for the opportunity to enter this active yet previously underserved route.”

The site is strategically located at the corner of I-65 and Highway 97, between Birmingham and Huntsville and will service chemical tank trailers.
