D&H United Fueling Solutions, a supplier of fuel system equipment, installation and services in the Southwest, acquired Valley Tank Testing, the company announced Nov. 11.
The acquisition broadens D&H United’s compliance services offerings and provides Valley Tank Testing with additional repair and project services capabilities.
“We are excited to welcome Brian Berkle, PJ Kane and the entire Valley Tank Testing team to the D&H United family,” said Bo Sasnett, CEO of D&H United Fueling Solutions. “This is a transformative acquisition that allows us to offer turnkey services that ensure maximum uptime and regulatory compliance for fuel site customers. The Valley Tank Testing team is customer centric and has done a great job of growing the company and the services that they provide. We look forward to providing the resources that will support their continued growth and customer care.”
