Newberry received the highest honors for Achievement in Management for its “New Thinking” philosophy and practices in 2019. Defying near-centurylong industry norms, Newberry started offering steel tanks on demand, turnkey solutions, expedited shipping and a new product to the underserved lube market. The combination resulted in growth that was 52% higher than the industry average.
Newberry also won a gold medal for its industry-first Tank Calculator, which won for New Product in Business Technology Manufacturing. The free application assists oil refuelers with measuring available capacity inside a tank when refueling. The result is an 87% recurring percentage reduction in time spent on each delivery, as well as prevention of environmentally damaging accidental spills.
Newberry’s SlimLine steel tank won bronze for New Industrial Product. Designed with input from lube industry giants, the design resulted in orders from five household name brands within the first month of production and resulted in a 47% increase in sales from this vertical market.
The company also won gold in Company of the Year in Metals and Mining.
For more than 90 years, Newberry Tank and Equipment has been manufacturing aboveground and underground steel tanks for the U.S. supply chain and every branch of the military.
