Tarsco’s clients in the oil and gas industry benefit from not only the company’s 30-plus years of contracting experience, but also from its business partnerships and corporate ties. The Woodlands, Texas-based company regularly provides engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction services for gas and liquid storage tank projects. The company regularly teams with its sibling companies within the TF Warren Group to provide value-added services to its customers as a component of its single-source provider advantage. 

“We have good sister companies assisting us,” says Carlos Gutierrez, vice president of business development and marketing. “The engineering, construction and other expertise we offer through our alliances helps us contract and execute projects tremendously.”

The company most frequently teams with tank coating and rehabilitation specialist Blastco Texas, with whom it will soon share a 15-acre equipment storage and office space in Channelview, Texas. Blastco Texas and its West Coast-based sibling company Blastco provide coating services on most tanks fabricated and installed by Tarsco.

The two companies under the Brant banner may differ when it comes to their products and markets served, but they’re unified when it comes to one thing. “Quality is at the forefront of what we do,” says Derrick Hexamer, general manager of Brant Corrosion Control, the older of the two Brantford, Ontario-based companies. “We have adapted to a lot of specifications, which have gotten more and more stringent over the years. We have the people in place who can handle and administer those specifications very well.”

Founded in 1984 as a two-man operation, Brant Corrosion Control today has more than 70 employees operating out of a 69,000-square-foot facility. The company’s offerings include protective coating and linings for tanks, vessels, pipes, fans, agitators and other specialty fabrications. Brant Corrosion Control’s main markets are the mining and water treatment tank industries, but it also serves other industries including the oil and gas, industrial manufacturing, chemical processing, food and beverage, and pulp and paper and power markets. 

One of North America’s leading providers of custom industrial coatings continues to add to its physical footprint and capabilities. Blastech, a TF Warren company, earlier this year applied for Association of American Railroads (AAR) certification.

The AAR certification will give the company the credentials to perform a number of services including tank car repair and reconditioning; removing and replacing gaskets and other tank car service equipment; and removing, installing, qualifying, repairing and inspecting interior linings and coatings. Blastech plans to expand its facility in Brantford, Ontario, “to meet the soaring demand for interior coating and lining of steel tank cars,” the company says.

Stallion Oilfield Services’ mission is aptly described in its slogan, “Stay Well Focused.” Oilfield workers face a demanding job that requires their complete attention and concentration. While they work, Stallion Oilfield Services will handle all of their ancillary needs safely and efficiently, says Chief Tauzin, vice president of sales.

Those needs are varied and include housing, communications, wellsite construction, drilling support, onsite water purification, fluid services, solids control, transportation and equipment rental. Stallion Oilfield Services offers varied solutions in each of these categories, but its core business is providing semi-permanent camp complexes for workers — a market that has grown and evolved over the past several years as demand increases, Tauzin says.

Smithco Engineering Inc.’s employees do their jobs every day with pride in their work, Vice President and General Manager Scott Edwards says. “The team members at Smithco are excited to be part of it,” he says. “We’ve created something where everyone is proud to have the Smithco badge on their shirt.”

Tulsa, Okla.-based Smithco designs, manufactures and supports custom-built, air-cooled heat exchangers for the refining and processing industries. Founder Orville Smith started the company out of his garage in 1952. “The money to build the first cooler came from Mrs. Smith’s sugar jar,” Edwards says.

Orville Smith’s nephew, Roy Smith, bought the company in 1979. Twenty-eight years later, the Smith family sold it to Hudson Products Corp., a leader in the air cooler and axial fans market, Edwards says.
