Sebco – celebrating their 10th birthday

2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineMarch 27, 2017

Everyone knows that fuel storage is important; knowing that the fuel you are using is free from contaminants, and is contained and protected from the environment.

Ed and Leah Harrison of Sebco Fuel Storage Systems Ltd in Ashburton have been manufacturing fully bunded, self-contained, leak-proof diesel tanks for the past 10 years. The tank structure is a high-impact polyethylene-plastic that is EPA compliant and totally safe to use in any environment, stopping moisture building up inside to create damaging rust.

The couple still remember the level of excitement they created when the tanks were first released at the South Island Field Days in March 2007.

“There was so much interest the grass in front of the display was worn right down to the dirt with the amount of foot traffic,” says managing director Ed.

The design won Sebco the Innovation Award at both the South Island and National Fieldays that year, out of almost 1000 exhibitors.

After 10 years they are still New Zealand‘s only manufacturer of EPA compliant plastic bunded tanks, with more than 2000 now installed for farms and industries in New Zealand and Australia.

Over the following years Sebco successfully expanded their product range with Sebco ‘Blue Stations‘ for storing and dispensing AdBlue®, used extensively throughout New Zealand. Waste oil storage was another area that Sebco believed could be improved on and it wasn‘t long before they used the same technology to manufacture a range of bunded tanks that would pass the most stringent regulatory inspection.

According to Ed, the company‘s success comes from one simple philosophy.

“We ensure our tanks always do what we say they will. And that‘s to keep our client‘s fuel clean and rust-free and with no leaks or spills that could damage the environment.”

Sebco is celebrating their 10-year anniversary by offering savings of up to $2,500 plus GST off their range of tanks.
