Marketing update

by Ruhan Kruger

Jared Buys and I had the honour of traveling to Las Vegas, Nevada, to represent Forgeweld Engineering at the 2015 Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) Convention, together with the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS).


The PEI is the international trade association for companies concerned with all aspects of equipment used in the fuel and fluid handling industry.

The PEI combines its trade show with the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS), resulting in a comprehensive display of equipment for use in service stations, bulk plants, terminals, gasoline transport, fuel oil delivery and related marketing operations, as well as everything associated with convenience store design and operation.


Attending this well organised event allowed us the opportunity to meet and interact with specialists from their respective divisions in the fuel industry. We were introduced to the latest equipment on the market, ranging from automatic tank gauging to overfill protection devices, as well as the latest spill, tank sumps, and dispenser sumps containment solutions.


We also had the opportunity learn about American based tank manufacturing processes, different product ranges as well networking in terms of sharing sales leads going forward.

Updates regarding double wall technology

forgeweld UG Double-Walled

Our clients have been requesting more information on double wall storage tanks. The advantage of double wall technology is the comfort of monitoring leak detection by using the LAG-14 ER leak alarm system. Our double wall steel tanks are certified by the United states UL 58 Standard.

So confident are we of our manufacturing standards that we back every Forgeweld manufactured double wall steel tank with a strong warranted covering external corrosion and structural failure.

We look forward to your feedback and to continuing to provide all our clients world class products and services. Until next time!

Best wishes
