Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group: Three great companies in one
Water and cell phones – you see them everywhere. Water is necessary to sustain life. Some might argue that cell phones are a necessity to modern life. The products and services of the family-owned Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group help provide these essentials.
There are three distinct companies under Pittsburg Tank & Tower Group’s umbrella: Pittsburg Tank Ground Division, Pittsburg Tank Maintenance Division, and Allstate Tower. All three are in Henderson, Kentucky. The two Pittsburg businesses are housed in the same building, while Allstate Tower is located a short drive away.
Each company has its specialties. Pittsburg Tank Ground Division focuses on fabricating and erecting new aboveground steel water storage tanks. Pittsburg Tank Maintenance Division’s objective is keeping existing tanks of all kinds in working order. Allstate Tower concentrates on communications towers, as well as fabricating steel support structures such as catwalks.
Pittsburg Tank Ground Division:
PTTG has extensive experience building aboveground storage tanks, having erected thousands of steel tanks over the years.
Pittsburg has a large, onsite, state-of-the-art storage tank fabrication facility which can make steel tanks that fit any needs. Each shop-built tank is fabricated to conform to different standards, whether that is API, AWWA, NFPA, Factory Mutual or more. PTTG also field erects tanks.
PTTG fabricates the following tanks:
- Thermal energy storage tanks
- Fire protection tanks
- Cryogenic tanks
- Welded and bolted elevated tanks
- API tanks
- Municipal tanks
Pittsburg Tank Maintenance Division:
The maintenance division is a true master of many trades. Whether it’s inspections, cleanouts, maintenance, repairs or dismantles, Pittsburg offers a full maintenance package.
PTTM offers dry, ROV and dive inspections and cleanouts. The company provides a DVD copy to show what each ROV inspection discovers.
Equipped with OSHA-approved scaffolding and mobile sandblasting, painting, and insulating equipment crews provide a finish on all tanks.
PTTM employees helped perfect the panel insulation system. The company also offers spray-applied urethane. PTTM has developed a low-cost electric immersion heater package for fire protection tanks.
Sometimes a tank or tower is past its prime and needs to be taken down for safety reasons. PTTM can do that. Crews are also capable of safely moving tanks to new locations and raising or lowering them to provide better water pressure. PTTM has successfully raised tanks with capacities ranging up to five million gallons. Are your tank’s legs and foundation in good condition? Maybe just the container needs replacing. We do that too, which can save customers money.
Allstate Tower services everything from small operations to large systems. Allstate has also completed jobs for customers just a stone’s throw away from its Henderson office to half the world away. The company has shipped its quality products to more than 50 countries.
Allstate is an AISC Certified Fabricator, which attests that Allstate is an expert in providing quality products. Whether its standard communication towers, superstructures, elevator support towers or catwalks, Allstate can design and fabricate products that meet customers’ needs and are up to code.
Shipping is expensive, which is one reason Allstate uses angle construction. Angle construction stacks nicely into an “L” formation, making it ideal for shipping containers.
It takes up less space than square or round tubing and requires fewer containers, which means it costs less to ship.
Between our three companies, PTTG can meet all of your tank, communication tower and support structure needs. We do what’s best to satisfy the needs of our customers.
After all, we wouldn’t have been able to make it to 100 years as a business without our loyal customers.
We believe by staying true to our values, making quality products and offering valued services, we will be around for another 100 years.
