Niles Steel Tank began in 1898 servicing the local agricultural industry and shortly thereafter built water tower tanks for the railroad industry. During the expansion of the Industrial Revolution, Niles Steel Tank played a major role in supporting both local and national manufacturers with ASME, Sec. VIII, Division 1 process tanks, pressure vessels, custom reactors and custom pressure vessels for almost every industry. Since Niles Steel Tank is a custom tank fabricator, there is very little that the facility cannot produce and is limited only by D.O.T. size restrictions and in-house lifting capabilities.
Purchased in 2002 by the Bradford White Corporation, Niles continues to operate as a manufacturer of custom pressure vessels, process tanks and glass lined water storage tanks. Soon after the acquisition, Niles expanded its operation into an 110,000 sq. ft. facility and began construction on their large glass lining operation. In 2004, Niles Steel Tank produced its first glass lined water storage tank. Although glass lined water storage tanks have become a large part of the NST business, the operation continues to service the custom pressure vessel markets.
As a U.S. manufacturer of custom pressure vessels and process tanks, Niles Steel Tank builds under the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII Division 1, with HLW, R, and U stamps in both carbon steel and stainless steel materials. Niles Steel Tank also services many other countries including, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Saudi Arabia and other Asian and European countries.
Today, you’ll find that Niles Steel Tank is not only a quality supplier for the major manufacturing corporations across the country but is also an OEM vessel supplier for equipment manufacturers who use tanks as an integral part of their products. Our diverse list of customers includes the automotive, compressor and press industries, air conditioning, water filtration, chemical and pharmaceutical companies and a host of other industries. NST also fabricates glass-lined pipe and fittings for the chemical, paint and waste water treatment sectors.
