Fol-Da-Tank sells to the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Army, Navy and many other government agencies. The Fol-Da-Tank is known world wide not only for firefighting but also for oil spill clean up and storage. Our products are also used on the North Slope of Alaska for emergency containment.
Fol-Da-Tanks are manufactured at our facility in Milan, Illinois. From welding the frame to painting the frame we have total quality control. The liners for the tanks are also manufactured at our plant. We use only top grade U.S. made industrial fabrics. We have tanks that are 15-20 years old that have been sent back for repairs and can last at least another 5 years.
Our design staff can custom design your tanks to meet special storage needs. Just call and we can quote your custom designs.
The Float-Dock Strainer® was also invented by the founder of Fol-Da-Tank, Giles Eldred, in 1954 and is still being sold worldwide as a dependable piece of firefighting equipment.
