Austin, TX – Tanknology Inc. and Berkley Environmental a division of Berkley Specialty Underwriting Managers LLC, announced today a first-of-its kind collaboration in the environmental liability insurance market, which will make environmental compliance and site risk management more affordable than ever for UST owners.

"We will be providing a great benefit to our clients by giving them access to exclusive discounted rates for Tanknology's wide range of UST site environmental compliance services."

"As the industry leader in UST compliance, Tanknology will provide Berkley clients with exceptional protection from the risks of a leak and the resulting environmental damage," Rehm-Stelter said. "We're excited to be able to bring this added value to our clients."
