Austin, TX – Tanknology Inc., the world’s largest Underground Storage Tank (UST) environmental compliance services company, and Simmons Corp. a worldwide supplier of fuel inventory and tank compliance monitoring systems, announced today that the two companies have entered into a partnership agreement in which Tanknology will install Simmons’ Tank Manager for Windows UST Automatic Tank Gauge systems throughout the United States.
Under this new program, Tanknology will provide certified installation service for Simmons’ ATG customers throughout the U.S., in order to support the increasing demand for the ATG.
Allen Porter, the President and CEO of Tanknology, foresees positive market reception for the Simmons ATG system now that it will be available for installation and service in all areas of the country.
“The Simmons system offers excellent value for a UST site operator. As it is a PC-based system, requiring no separate controller box, it is substantially less expensive than the market-leading ATG options. This makes it an attractive value proposition for some segments of the UST marketplace. We are pleased to be partnering with Simmons to provide their customers with installation service through our nationwide network of UST service technicians.”
Myra Canterbury, President of Simmons, added, “We are very excited about this partnership with Tanknology, as it will allow us to provide our cost-effective ATG solutions to customers in all areas of the country. Tanknology has an unmatched reputation as the premiere UST compliance services company in the U.S., so we’re very pleased to be partnering with them for installation of our systems.”
The TMW650 is the latest generation of Simmons’ ATG technology, which has been proven exceptionally reliable over more than 20 years of use in retail fueling facilities. The system’s highly dependable ultrasonic probes are installed in thousands of tanks in the US and Europe. The system, which comes in two different size configurations, is PC-based, and runs on a standard Windows-based computer. This allows it to run on a computer which typically is already in use at the facility.
According to Porter, at a typical fueling facility, a Tanknology installation crew will generally complete a new Simmons ATG system installation in a single day.
