The History of TIC

To many of our clients and friends in the storage tank industry, TANK INDUSTRY CONSULTANTS (TIC) requires no introduction. However, others may not be aware that our comprehensive consulting service is available for steel and concrete storage tanks.

TIC was founded in 1979 by Mr. E. Crone Knoy, P.E., when he became aware of a need within the water storage industry for professional, unbiased, third-party information about the condition of water storage tanks. Since that time, TIC has grown to become a nationally recognized leader in evaluation and design of steel plate and concrete structures of all types.

Today, Tank Industry Consultants has a staff of 34 registered professional engineers, field technicians, and specially trained support personnel--with offices nationwide. In all, TIC's staff has over 850 years of experience in the storage tank industry! Our staff successfully combines practical experience with "textbook" learning and extensive involvement in industry organizations and training programs. Our clients particularly appreciate the fact that all information is communicated to them in a manner which is easily understood, but which in no way slights the technical rationale behind the facts and recommendations.

"Tank Industry Consultants has been very attentive to our water reservoir needs.  The firm is responsive and timely to all of our requests and willing to work with our budget and processes to get the work completed.  We are happy to have TIC in our corner."
