In 1952 William E. Kennedy, Jr (owner of Kennedy Tank in Indianapolis, IN) in an effort to more effectively service current and potential customers created Steel Tank and Fabricating Corporation (STAFCO). STAFCO was primarily used to satisfy the increasing needs for the petroleum industry. Our main focus was underground tanks for gas stations. STAFCO now has the ability to manufacture tanks up to 42,000 gallons in both vertical and horizontal configurations.

In 1985 Carl Norris was hired as the General Manager and acting Vice President and General Manager of STAFCO. Through the years STAFCO has changed and expanded its product lines in an effort to satisfy the ever-growing regulatory demands and customer needs. As STAFCO grew and the demands exceeded the time Carl had available, the need for a person to handle production was evident. So in 1990, Carl hired Mike Reed as the Production and Engineering Manager.

As STAFCO continued to grow and our capabilities expanded, Ron Trocchio joined the team in 2007 to oversee sales and marketing, Upon Carl's retirement, Mike Reed assumed the role as Vice President in 2013 and is still active in the day to day operations of the company as well as the long range planning.

Today Pat W. Kennedy, the great grandson of founder Patrick Washington Kennedy is the fourth generation Kennedy owner and is President of STAFCO as well as Kennedy Tank in Indianapolis, IN and Southern Tank in Owensboro, KY. The future continues to look bright for the Kennedy companies as Pat's sons Bill and Patrick have become active in the day to day operations.

STAFCO serves the petroleum, chemical, construction, agricultural, bio-fuel, and general industry customers. Let us put our commitment to Teamwork, Quality, Communication, Customer Satisfaction and Extensive Tank Manufacturing Experience to work for you...

When you think of 'green' it typically refers to how we treat the environment but it does not only involve recycling. Going green involves much more.

It means taking steps, whether big or small, to minimize the harm you do to the environment and that's where STAFCO can help. We have many solutions to help you contain your fuels, chemicals or fertilizer to minimize the effects they have on the environment. Whether it is replacing your existing tank with a double wall tank or providing you with equipment to monitor and limit the possibility of spills resulting in contaminating the ground or air.

If you make the conscientious effort to go green; you are trying to live life, as an individual as well as a business or community, in such a way that is friendly to the environment and all that is contained within.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has put into place rules for spill prevention, control and countermeasures known as the SPCC in an effort to regulate industries from contaminating the environment. You can find all the relevant information at the EPA website.
