China Calls on Edmonton Fibreglass Storage Tank Maker


FEB 24, 2012

Local liquid storage specialists ZCL took another step toward breaking into the world’s fastest growing economy this week, touring businessmen from oil titan PetroChina around Edmonton.

Edmonton-based ZCL specializes in manufacturing fibreglass tanks used by gas stations to store gasoline underground. “China is still very much a steel-tank market,” said Lee Brownson, ZCL’s director of global business development.

He’s hoping to change that. Non-corroding fibreglass tanks are fast replacing steel tanks, the industry standard of 30 years.

“We are looking at doing to steel in China what we have been able to do in North America,” said Brownson.
