Our strategy is to be the world’s leading manufacturer of composite fiberglass tank and pipe. We consider that given the enormous features and benefits of composite products that Nationwide Tank and Pipe LLC is well placed to ride the wave of continued growth in this sector.

Nationwide Tank and Pipe has recently established the Nationwide Research Center where we have employed a team of polymer chemists and engineers with the goal of making continued advancements in the use of composites in the tank and pipe sector.

Nationwide Tank and Pipe are able to provide customers with a range of solutions from our composite fiberglass tank and pipe to steel tanks that are suitable for a variety of applications.

Our company has seen trends emerging where traditional steel storage tanks are being replaced with composite fiberglass tanks due to an improved service life and lower cost structure both in terms of initial purchase and ongoing maintenance. With Nationwide Tank and Pipe’s internal expertise we are well placed to be a key part of this industry growth.

Nationwide Tank and Pipe have a stringent quality control system in place. This involves the following process:

Step 1: Incoming raw materials are screened by the Nationwide Tank and Pipe Research Center where one of our Polymer Chemists will take a sample of incoming raw materials to ensure it is in accordance with the benchmark set for that particular raw material.

Step 2: During the manufacturing process we have a detailed Quality Control Sheet that follows the tank through the manufacturing process to ensure that each step in the manufacturing process is performed correctly.

Step 3: After the manufacturing process every tank in independently inspected to ensure that the tank is manufactured correctly.

Step 4: During the manufacturing process various cut outs are taken out of the tank to enable fittings to be installed into the tank. These fittings are provided to our Research Center where various testing will be undertaken on the sample, including:

  • Flexural Testing of the laminate
  • Tensile Testing of the laminate
  • Cure Testing of the laminate
  • Barcol Hardness Testing of the laminate
  • Burn Testing of the laminate
  • Boil Testing of the laminate

All of this testing enables our Research Center to confirm that the tanks is suitable for the application intended. This level of Quality Control testing is unique in the composite fiberglass tank industry and something that Nationwide Tank and Pipe is proud to offer to its customers.

Nationwide Tank and Pipe provides its entire staff with an opportunity to grow and develop. We have a culture of respect for the individual where all staff are treated equally and fair.

We have a philosophy of promoting from within to enable staff to move through the ranks of the business. Similarly, we also believe in providing our staff with opportunity to diversify into other areas of the business in order to broaden the employee's skill set.

As an example one of our senior factory foreman started with the business as an unskilled worker. He was trained to become a composite fiberglass technician where he broadened his skills from lamination to equipment operation. He then progressed to becoming a team leader. He then progressed to managing over 40 staff in our tank fit out division. The company recognized his dedication and hard work and he was rewarded with advancement both in terms of career and financially.

This is just one example where the company has provided its staff with the opportunity to grow and develop. So many of our staff say 'Nationwide Tank and Pipe' is just a great place to work.

Nationwide Tank and Pipe operates the very latest tank and pipe manufacturing equipment. Depending upon our customer’s requirements we can manufacture our tanks using a variety of systems including chop, hoop chop and helix wound.

Depending upon the performance requirements for the tank we can design the most suitable construction systems.

One of the advantages with our robotic equipment is the ability to maintain consistency in the manufacturing process. Each tank is manufactured in accordance with a pre-programmed recipe that enables us to ensure that the tank is built correctly for the intended application.

Our manufacturing team is continuing to innovate in the manufacturing process with the invention of a variety of robotic and mechanical systems that enable us to deliver quality tanks in a timely manner.
