Specifications

Palmer Mfg. has been manufacturing steel tanks since 1944 and strives to meet therequirements set forth by the Underwriters Laboratories, The Steel Tank Institute, and The American Society of Engineers.

 The steel shop is composed of four primary buildings:  East Bay, where the smaller tanks are manufactured; Center bay, where the bigger tanks, up to 12' diameter - 30' long; Big Tank is used for special projects of odd shapes and sizes; and New Building where tanks up to 16' diameter are manufactured.  This arrangement of buildings enables us to meet your producation needs at a cost savings to you.

The demand for quality fiberglass tanks is met by utilizing two buildings for fabrication.  One building is designed for manufacturing 8', 12' and 16' diameter tanks while the other is designed to manufacture 9', 10', and less than 8' diameter tanks.  Having these accomodations allows us to manufacture the fiberglass tanks any business would need.
