Versatility is at the heart of what we do. Because our tanks are square or rectangular; they have many more uses than the standard circular tank.
Engineers, Architects and Consultants across Australia use our specific engineered plans and designs and incorporate them into their house drawings, plans, commercial building submissions and industrial applications. Local Councils are more confident to approve our systems for underground use, as they are structurally designed and engineered for that very purpose.
Our tanks are known for their longevity, as well as their versatility. Our concrete mix design is regularly tested for strength. Couple that with our manufacturing technique, and you have reliable and high-quality tanks.
The Versatile Tanks Company was established as a result of director’s experience in the building, engineering and manufacturing fields.
Originally called R.P. Bin Services Pty Ltd the company was established in 1992 to manufacture industrial steel waste containers for Brambles Australia. It was thought a change of name to describe the companies direction seemed appropriate in 2007.
The Versatile Tank Company is purely an Australian company specialising in the development and implementation of steel mould manufacturing and technology solutions for the concrete industry including modifications, adaptability for mines, gas, water, retaining systems, heavy industrial solutions for water recycling.
From its inception Versatile Tanks has rapidly grown to become one of the most respected suppliers of unique seamless rectangular and square structural concrete vaults for the Australian market.
With projects in Australia as well as in New Zealand, Versatile Tanks provide one of the most advanced water storage, explosive storage solutions for a highly specialised and demanding industry.
In 2022, Dee and Ray sold the business to Formcast Pty Ltd who moved the manufacturing facility down to Canberra and have now grown the business and increased manufacturing capabilities and the production line.
The tanks and their uses
Every concrete tank is made in a seamless mould in our factory, so you can be sure of no leaks. All tanks come with structural lids and a 600x 600mm man hole, plus they’re manufactured for easy installation for builders, excavators, and plumbers.
Our concrete tanks are designed to be modular and sit tightly next to each other, which is great for restricted site applications both above and below ground. Their design is engineered for applied loads and uniquely ribbed for strength. Therefore, they can be buried underground or installed as a driveway, garage, or patio.
We can customize our tanks for your needs. Check out the list of their possible uses:
- Fresh water storage tanks
