Lancaster Tank & Truck Wash was recently acquired by Tampa-based Quala, an independent provider of comprehensive cleaning, test and repair services for tank trailers, International Standard Organization containers, intermediate bulk containers, and railcars.
With the purchase of the business at 798 Flory Mill Road, Quala expands its food grade and chemical cleaning capacity servicing the Northeast, a release said. “This facility offers quick and efficient tank cleaning with the food grade certifications that customers require.”
According to its website, Lancaster Tank & Truck Wash was founded in 1987 and specializes in interior tank cleaning. “We offer unparalleled customer service for many of the largest food and non-food manufacturers in the United States and Canada,” as one of the premier tank washes in the Northeast.
Lancaster Tank & Truck Wash, with a workforce of 12, also offers truck washing and decal removal.
Quala’s chief operating officer, Erik Leto, said in the release: “Adding Lancaster Tank Wash to our network further demonstrates our commitment to the food grade market and expands our ability to service customers transporting food-related products along the East Coast.”
Founded in 1986, Quala began independent operations in 2009 and today has 125-plus locations providing total tank solutions to the most active bulk transportation routes and eight of North America’s busiest ports.
