Tank Builders, Inc. opened our doors in 1972 when Bill Goodfellow and E.L. Derr formed a partnership to build welded steel tanks for the growing water market in Texas. In 1975 Bill & E.L. hired their first full time engineer, Bruce Kromer, directly out of Texas Tech. In 1983 Bill Goodfellow retired and Bruce bought into the company and remained partners with E.L. until 2000 when E.L. retired. Through the years our customer base has broadened beyond the water market to include large industrial customers, providing both new tank construction and repair.

To gain trust and confidence in all business relationships with a focus on safety, quality, performance, dependability, and lasting value.
