Headquartered in Houston, Texas, PSC is the nation’s largest network of commercial parts and repair facilities dedicated to the tank trailer and tank truck industry.
Founded in 1995, the company began operations in seven facilities across the US and today operates in more than 35 locations servicing the entire country along key transportation routes.
The new organization will expand the overall footprint for tank washing, maintenance, and parts sales to the broader customer base.
The Quala and PSC teams are actively working to integrate the two organizations and bring together industry leading operational processes, safety practices and environmental stewardship. Customers will be able interact with a single provider for their fleet for cleaning, repair, maintenance, and inspections thus improving utilization and fleet performance.

Later this year, the tank washes will be rebranded, and the maintenance facilities will be rebranded PSC in order to eliminate brand confusion among customers. Additional information about these changes will be available in the coming months.
“Completing this transaction represents a significant investment in the future of the combined organization,” said Scott Harrison, CEO of Quala. “Our customers will soon see the benefits of an expanded service provider supporting this vital industry.”

We are excited about the opportunity to drive operational efficiency across all aspects of the business and identify new service areas for our customers.”
