Kansas tank maker plans expansion

PARSONS, Kan. (AP) — A southeast Kansas company that makes tanks for customers worldwide is planning a major expansion.

The Parsons Sun reports Tank Connection is adding equipment and employees to expand production by 50 percent.

The Parsons-based firm was established 10 years ago with two employees. The addition of 35 workers will bring total employment to more than 400.

Tank Connection manufactures shop-welded, field-welded and hybrid storage tanks as well as aluminum dome covers. The company has two plants in Parsons and one each in Baxter Springs, Oswego and Galesburg.

Company president Bill Neighbors most of the new equipment will be installed at the Galesburg plant. A third shift will be added there and at the Parsons facilities.
