    This year Permastore celebrates 60 years of unequalled and unbroken history as the technical leader in the design, development and manufacture of quality Glass-Fused-to-Steel (GFtS), Epoxy coated and stainless-steel containment storage solutions.  This is not a position that we got to by chance.  Dedication, commitment, engineering capability and innovation has built our standing in the industry where we produce the most technically advanced, internationally recognised and durable tank designs to date.

    A key differentiating factor of Permastore from other manufacturers or suppliers is our “family” of performance driven, quality assured glass and epoxy coatings that are specifically tailored to suit the requirements of differing customer needs.  This not only offers more choice to prospective customers but also provides them with confidence knowing that Permastore will never offer a product that is not fit for the application it is intended.

    Throughout Permastore’s history the Company has been credited with many innovative industry product “firsts”.  In addition to our high quality coatings there is the straight vertical seam and sealed mitre bolt-through jointing system specifically designed for the storage of liquids, more precise tighter finished tanks, our unique independently “externally audited” 100% defect free (also known as holiday free) coated tank panels, and our double-skin tank designs.  These developments all led to being able to supply the world’s largest ever constructed modular bolted coated storage containment solution.

    It doesn’t stop there; we continue to be a forward-thinking company searching for new ideas and technologies that transform our industry whilst building customer value through ongoing innovation.   We are dedicated to continuously invest in research and development creating processes that facilitate novel product development.  The Company’s engineering bias is enhanced through our connection with leading universities, prominent industry thought leaders and engineering consultants that cement Permastore’s position as a product design forerunner.

    Supported by a network of international distribution partners Permastore has an extensive list of successfully installed structures worldwide which continues to grow.  Permastore CEO, Frank Cutri commented “It is Permastore’s vision to create an ecosystem of partners whose business strategies and values are closely aligned.  Together we can provide the highest quality, most technically advanced internationally recognised solutions that benefit our distribution network and their customers.  Permastore prides itself on its long history of innovation, excellent reputation and our partners’ dedication to provide world class service to their customers“.

    Permastore’s geographical footprint of modular bolted coated storage containment solutions has grown becoming a global brand associated with first class products and service.  Our products stand the test of time and provide customers with a feeling of confidence experienced through longevity of supply, support and quality of design.  We stand by the products we have designed and have done so for over 60 years.

    Leave a Comment

    H2Flow continues its success throughout Canada, by successfully securing a project for blue chip customer Goodyear. H2Flow were chosen for this project due to their extensive experience and excellent reputation within the industry together with a superior product offering.  The project involved the supply and installation of a 1800m3 Factory Mutual (FM) approved water tank as part of the facility’s fire protection system upgrade. The strict FM approval process requires a guaranteed amount of fire water be available inside the tank, this is achieved by ensuring that nozzle locations are positioned appropriately.

    The PERMASTORE® product offers market leading structural design together with a family of performance driven glass coatings.  Permastore subjects its Quality Standards and products to independent audit by MPA NRW (a state-owned testing company based in Germany), which ensures that customers continue to benefit from the highest quality products in the industry.  These independently audited test standards give customers peace of mind by ensuring that Permastore continually meets the highest quality standards in the Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank industry.

    Permastore’s product portfolio also includes Fusion Bonded Epoxy tanks and silos as well as a comprehensive range of roofs and covers.  This gives H2Flow the ability to offer more flexible options to better match project requirements and tank configurations.  H2Flow are an invaluable local contact for customers who will benefit from their extensive experience and high quality installation expertise.

  9. Improving infrastructure in Nicaragua

    Leave a Comment

    A PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank was chosen to improve the drinking water system in Chichigalpa in Western Nicaragua.  More than 7,800 families will have their day-to-day living conditions improved through the benefits provided by this new water storage tank.  The Nicaraguan Aqueduct and Sewer Company (Enacal) reported that this project includes the construction of the PERMASTORE® tank, three wells and the improvement of 15kms of distribution networks.  Once the project is completed, it is expected to guarantee water supply 24 hours a day to local families.  The total project investment is US$6.2m.  Chichigalpa has been known for its problems with water supply so it is convinced that, when solving the issue of water scarcity, this will raise the quality of life of its inhabitants improving their health conditions.

    Permastore’s local Distributor COMPAÑIA HIDRAULICA (known as COHISA) completed the installation of the tank.  COHISA’s main focus is on environmental problems and the protection of water as a resource. COHISA consider respect for the environment as part of their social responsibility and their mission is to offer realistic and sustainable solutions over time.

    COHISA provide innovative solutions in water treatment engineering, applying technology and specialised knowledge, which generate value to customers, through a team of professionals with excellence and ethics, as well as having international support. In this particular case, technical assistance was received from Permastore, through the presence of a Service Engineer on site during construction of the tank. COHISA´s policy is to hire local workers to generate local and regional employment, leaving those workers trained and with the capacity to do similar jobs in the country.

    The PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank was chosen for its low maintenance, high-durability coating which results in reduced lifetime costs of maintaining the tank, once in operation making it the ideal choice for projects like this one.

    Permastore and its Distributors are committed to being involved with projects that contribute to the improvement of water and wastewater infrastructure for residents and which benefit communities.  To discuss your next water storage project, get in touch with us and find out how a PERMASTORE® tank can play an integral part to help with tackling the global water crisis, improving infrastructure and helping to ensure that all the population have access to a safe water supply.
