Following years of consistent growth, Fuel Proof®, Britain’s leading fuel tank manufacturer, is now extending its presence into the USA with the first transatlantic shipments of its US-variant Fuelcube bunded steel diesel tanks.
Specifically adapted for North America, the UL-Approved 250 Gallon Fuelcube is already making its way into Texas, Kansas and Florida for use in the agricultural and construction sectors – with more shipments on the way from Fuel Proof’s British factory to their new base in Kansas City, MO.
Available with 12/24V and hand pump diesel dispensing kits, the Fuelcube tank is Fuel Proof’s most popular product – with hundreds in progress and out on delivery from their Lancashire manufacturing facility at any one time. The company’s signature fuel tanks are jointly constructed by a team of expert welders and three robot welding arms in order to handle consumer demand.
Now adapted to the US market with full UL 142 Certification, the 250 Gallon Fuelcube combines the best of British engineering and manufacturing standards into a 110% bunded fuel storage and delivery system which is compact, stackable, easy to move and easy to use. But first and foremost, the all-steel Fuelcube is designed to be secure.
“In every sector, from agriculture to aviation, fuel security is our customers’ top priority,” says Andrew Hargreaves, Fuel Proof MD. “Flow rates and compliance with regulations are crucial to any organisation running fuelling operations on-site, but above all else people need a guarantee that their fuel is safe. Safe from any would-be thieves trying to access the fuel tank, and safe from any legal and environmental issues if that tank sustains any damage during its everyday service. Combine that need for security with total ease-of-use, for as many end-users as there are industry sectors, and the answer is the Fuelcube system. It’s been a constant bestseller across the UK and Europe for many years, and now I’m proud to say that Fuel Proof, and the Fuelcube, are coming to America.”
Reflecting its 23-year path to success in the UK and overseas, the company now has its sights set firmly on the United States’ vast agricultural sector. With over two million farms in operation across the USA, American agriculture represents an immense opportunity for any manufacturer willing to put customer, and quality, first.
“Certainly, we’re up against plenty of competition in terms of supplying fuel storage solutions to the US. But when it really comes down to product quality and manufacturing expertise, the Fuelcube has a distinct advantage. Our competitors focus on output quantity, while we’ve always kept our eye firmly on product quality.”
It’s this focus on quality which is behind Fuel Proof’s ongoing success and expansion, since it was first formed in 2000 in Settle, North Yorkshire – growing from a fuel tank hire company servicing customers in the North West of England, into a global exporter of industry-leading fuel tanks and aviation refuelling systems.
The company’s 25,000 sq. ft. assembly and warehouse facility in Heysham, England is currently undergoing major expansion work, with not one but two construction sites now set to massively expand the manufacturer’s fabrication, shot-blasting and polyurethane paint-coating capabilities.
But the company isn’t only expanding production space to increase output on its existing products.
“We’re entering into an exciting new phase for Fuel Proof, with solar power now playing a major role. While our 250-gallon Fuelcubes are heading out to the United States, we’ve also further developed our European Fuelcubes to incorporate a new solar charging system, powering the tank’s 12/24V fuel dispensing pump via a built-in battery, for self-powered fuel dispensing that truly is foolproof. Added to our new Solar Fuelcubes, further solar storage products are now through the design phase and entering into production.
Going forward, Fuel Proof is expanding beyond just fuel storage, into energy storage more broadly – and not only in the UK and Europe, but with our sights set on the USA and around the globe.”
