Quala has expanded its network in the Gulf and Midwest of the US with three acquisitions aimed at expanding capacity and geographic footprint.
Quala has acquired Haughton Environmental in Shreveport, Los Angeles, Tank Trailer Cleaning and AAA Trailer Services in East St Louis, Illanois, and Sani-Kleen Tank Cleaning with three locations in Missouri and Kansas.
With the addition of Tank Trailer Cleaning and AAA Trailer Services of Illinois in East St Louis, Quala more than doubles its capacity in this market with a comprehensive 50-acre facility.
The new facility offers food grade and chemical tank cleaning services, ISO cleaning, and IBC (Tote) repair and cleaning. Additionally, this facility offers full-service tank trailer repair and maintenance services.
Erik Leto, Quala chief operating officer, stated: “We continuously look to support our mission by expanding our network and improving capabilities to service our customers.
“In terms of food grade cleaning, these acquisitions add to Quala’s already Largest Food Grade Cleaning Network in North America, with a total of 23 Fully Certified, Food Grade Facilities. Concurrently, the addition of AAA Trailer Services and the planned maintenance expansion in Shreveport allows Quala to continue to expand its independent Maintenance network, offering our customers the ability for one-stop tank trailer cleaning and maintenance in 21 facilities.
“We look forward to servicing our existing and new customers at each of these new facilities.”
