Tim Carpenter, CEO of CST Industries, reflected on the company’s 125th anniversary by saying, “We see this exceptional milestone as an opportunity to both honor our legacy and look to our future. Throughout this year, we want to celebrate by thanking the people around the world who have made CST what it is today.

We have weathered troubling market cycles, but thanks to our market leading innovation, unrivaled experience and customer minded vision, we have not only succeeded, but have grown where most companies will never be able to realize. We are proud to be celebrating 125 years in business, and we are not slowing down.”
The company was founded in 1893 as Columbian Steel Tank in Kansas City, Missouri as a fabricator of livestock watering tanks. Columbian was the first company to design and manufacture bolted steel tanks with the American Petroleum Institute (API) monogram beginning in 1929. As the market innovator, CST most recently launched TecTank FP™, with the first ever jacking system designed by licensed professional engineers and Proof Load Tested by a third party lab, and the OptiDome® to increase water shedding and eliminate ponding on domes. The Harvestore® Raptor Series Cutter & Conveyor Chains made of high quality proprietary steel alloys for optimum wear resistance and a new Harvestore® advanced designed Gearbox and Breather Bag for excellent performance were also among the launches. Most recently, Edgecoat II™ was introduced to the liquid markets. Edgecoat II is the only coating process in the world with glass encapsulation on all four edges of tank panels providing the greatest protection in liquid storage tanks. CST is the only tank company that provides this process and this level of product quality. The long-term success is due to not only advanced product offerings, but with a culture driven on service and delivery.
Today, CST is not just a tank company; it has grown into becoming the world’s largest manufacturer of bolted glass-fused-to-steel and epoxy coated tanks, aluminum domes and specialty covers, and now offers a suite of inspection, maintenance, repairs, modification and turnkey services. The company has over 368,000 tanks and covers installed around the world. CST is home to world-class brands including Aquastore®, Harvestore®, TecTank™, (formerly Columbian TecTank®, Peabody TecTank) and OptiDome® (formerly Temcor and Conservatek®).
