On the outskirts of North Rockhampton, the Nu-Tank business has quietly grown in size and reputation to becoming one of Australia’s biggest.

Starting in 2008, Nu-Tank originally took up about half of the industrial shed they now fully occupy along the Bruce Highway in Parkhurst. With a team of five and one delivery truck we set about making water tanks, but differently.

Having only drunk tank water as a kid and a parent who once was in the industry, our Managing Director Stephen Trail knew water storage was a growing market in Australia and not one that overseas companies could easily get a foothold into. Stephen also realised there were better ways to make tanks cleaner, stronger and more reliable.

Fitting split had for years been the curse of rural producers, seeing their valuable supply of water uncontrollably escape from tanks around its brass outlet. Nu-Tank were the first to introduce poly welded fittings, one of the many features that make the Nu-Tank difference. No more brass fittings, no more fitting split.

Making bigger and better water tanks was not the only objective in Nu-Tank’s plan. Over the years our product range has grown to include molasses, dundah, cartage, septic and waste tanks, troughs, feeders and now steel tanks. This year also sees Nu-Tank’s range of firefighting units hitting the market. “We be now one of the biggest trough and septic tank manufacturers in Australia”, said Steve.

Employing over 30 people and managing a significant fleet of trucks that travel non-stop throughout Queensland; good old fashion values of providing a quality product and excellent customer service has remained at Nu-Tank’s core.

Asked what have been the challenges in building the business, Steve looks to the sky and says, “mate there have been many, electricity costs is a big one, along with transportation issues, but every challenge is an opportunity, you got to stay focused, committed to supplying quality products and optimistic”.

“Over the next 10 years we’ll keep innovating, listening to our customers and hopefully be here to celebrate our 20th birthday.”
