Quality Steel Corporation announced its acquisition of American Welding and Tank on Monday from Taylor-Wharton International.

Quality Steel, a Cleveland based ASME propane tank manufacturer and industry leader in value-added services to the customer, was founded in 1957 and has continued to grow and expand to produce and ship products nationwide for residential, commercial, small industrial, and agricultural use.

American Welding and Tank, which has been recognized as one of the leaders in the propane tank industry since 1917, has manufacturing facilities in Fremont, OH and West Jordan, UT and will give Quality Steel the ability to increase its production capacity and better serve their customer base by having strategically located facilities.

President and CEO of Quality Steel, Jim Tims, said, “Quality Steel has survived and grown by setting the industry standards for quality and customer service.

We plan to use these same standards to earn the trust and loyalty of the many faithful customers of American Welding and Tank that we will be welcoming to our costumer base.

We are excited about the many new relationships we will be developing within the propane gas industry.”

Virgil Mullins, COO at Quality Steel Corporation, stated, “We are looking forward to joining two companies that have such rich histories of quality and customer service.

Our combined capacity and manufacturing expertise will allow us to better serve the future needs of the propane industry.”

Quality Steel Corporation’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Lynn Hardin, said, “This acquisition will expand our product offerings as well as provide Quality Steel an opportunity to improve upon our delivery model.

We look forward to integrating the synergies that exist between the two companies to provide the customer with the best experience possible.”

Quality Steel, along with the recently acquired American Welding and Tank, hopes to continue its mission of being the premier ASME tank manufacturer in the U.S. by offering high quality tanks, exceptional customer service, and by remaining committed to its core values.
