  • In August 1965, founders Glen Brandt, Larue Jacobs and Tom Sutton were enjoying an afternoon at a county fair, not merely sipping lemonade, but finding themselves chatting about the future of farming and the growth in liquid fertilizer products. Acquiring tanks was problematic, so they came up with the idea to build tanks themselves. After joining with some local investors, it wasn't long before the vision of Precision Tank & Equipment became a reality.
  • With 10 acres, a large building near Virginia, IL and the focus to design and make field proven fertilizer storage and practical handling equipment, this liquid fertilizer industry company soon began making its mark.
  • In 1985, the company expanded to Athens, IL, acquiring the local assets of MAPCO Thermogas. Just a year later PT&E also acquired the assets of Great Northern, gaining knowledgeable employees, some of whom are among the 50 currently working.
  • In 2009, we began constructing a new 30,000 sq.ft. manufacturing building in Ligonier, Indiana. Opening in 2010, PT&E began producing 12' diameter fiberglass tanks at Ligonier, plus stainless steel tanks. Precision is excited to add fiberglass tanks to our versatile product line. Precision Tank can now manufacture 30,000 gallon tanks in your choice of fiberglass, stainless steel, or mild steel.
  • In 2013, we began constructing a new 35,000 sq.ft. manufacturing building in Humboldt, Iowa. Opening in 2014, PT&E began producing 11' 7'' diameter fiberglass tanks at Humboldt, plus stainless steel tanks.
  • 2015, Precision Tank & Equipment acquired A&B Welding of Thompson, Iowa. A company primarily focused on large capacity, field-erected tank construction and piping started by Arlin and Betty Kiel in 1979.
