HOUSTON — D&H United Fueling Solutions (D&H United), a supplier of fuel system equipment, installation and services in the Southwest, has acquired Valley Tank Testing. The acquisition broadens D&H United’s compliance services offerings while providing Valley Tank Testing with additional repair and project services capabilities. 

Valley Tank Testing was founded in 2004 in Houston by PJ Kane and Brian Berkle, both of whom have years of experience in environmental compliance, maintenance and repairs. The company has grown to provide a complete suite of underground storage tank (UST) and above-ground storage tank (AST) system testing and inspection services from Florida to Arizona, doing business in more than 30 states across the country.  

Valley Tank Testing will operate as a separate standalone division of D&H United, allowing both companies to broaden their services offerings to their customers.

“We are excited to welcome Brian Berkle, PJ Kane and the entire Valley Tank Testing team to the D&H United family. This is a transformative acquisition that allows us to offer turnkey services that ensure maximum uptime and regulatory compliance for fuel site customers. The Valley Tank Testing team is customer centric and has done a great job of growing the company and the services that they provide. We look forward to providing the resources that will support their continued growth and customer care,” said Bo Sasnett, CEO of D&H Fueling Solutions.

“This is an exciting time for Valley Tank Testing, the beginning of a truly synergistic partnership with D&H United. We will be continuing our growth with even more support and resources for our customers,” said PJ Kane, co-founder of Valley Tank Testing.

“We are excited to join forces with the D&H United team. This is the next step in our evolution to meet our customers’ growth needs,” said Brian Berkle, co-founder of Valley Tank Testing.

In February 2020, KLH Capital partnered with D&H United’s management team to recapitalize and continue the growth path of the company. “D&H United’s services are an essential infrastructure business located throughout the growing sunbelt of the Southwest. The acquisition of Valley Tank Testing broadens the company’s compliance services business and delivers on the company’s vision of providing turnkey services for its customers,” said James Darnell, partner at KLH Capital.

D&H United Fueling Solutions, based in Houston, is an essential infrastructure business and a supplier of fuel system equipment, installation and service in the Southwest. The company has 400 employees and is an authorized distributor and service provider for Gilbarco Veeder-Root as well as other major equipment brands.

Valley Tank Testing, based in Apollo Beach, Fla., was established in January 2004. The company now covers UST and AST system testing, maintenance and repairs in more than 30 states.
