Allied's Strong First Quarter Bolstered by Industrial Coating Services
Allied has carried a strong 2017 into the the new year, supported by its industrial cleaning and coating services. In 2017, as a result of customer demand, Allied expanded service offerings to include interior and exterior corrosion-resistant coating and lining services for storage tanks and pipelines. According to Gary Gootee, Allied Industrial Services Manager, the company’s coating and lining capabilities include complete project service. “The advantage we have over our competition is our ability to self-perform all aspects of a tank or pipeline resurfacing project from start to finish,” Gootee stated. “Our crews can isolate and blank the equipment, evacuate and transfer any remaining contents, clean the vessel, blast and prepare the surface, apply the coating or lining, provide quality assurance testing, and bring the equipment back into service,” Gootee added. According to Gootee, Allied’s complete service approach simplifies the project coordination, schedule and billing, which benefits the customer. “Having a singular crew complete all tasks also results in a better finished project,” Gootee added.
The growth of Allied’s coating services has had a measurable affect on the company’s revenue for first quarter 2018. “Business is good,” Gootee said. “We recently landed a contract with a major regional tank rental firm to re-coat and line their fleet of mobile frac tanks. We are also being approached by multiple upstream and midstream petroleum refining and transport firms to provide service,” he added. According to Gootee, Allied plans to expand the industrial coatings service through 2018.
