AUSTIN, Texas AW Associates is now part of Tanknology, an environmental compliance testing, inspection services and fuel quality firm. The agreement finalized April 1.

The Corona, Calif.-based AW Associates is a fuel system testing, maintenance and compliance company founded in 2009 by industry veteran Kathy Wilkerson.

"The partnership is expected to provide significant benefits to both companies’ customer base by adding highly skilled employees and leadership to the Tanknology team while bolstering our geographic capabilities in Southern California. AW Associates shares in our commitment to a customer-centric culture and delivery of a highest quality of service," said Allen Porter, Tanknology president and CEO.

"AW Associates is excited to be joining Tanknology," said Wilkerson, president and CEO of AW Associates. "By joining Tanknology, AW Associates will enhance our capacity for delivery of service and enable us to offer customers additional services and resources.”

This is the second recent business combination for Tanknology. The company purchased Wisconsin-based Compliance Testing and Technology, a provider of aboveground storage tank and underground storage tank compliance services, in May 2020.

Austin, Texas-based Tanknology is a provider of environmental compliance testing, inspection services, corrosion prevention and fuel quality solutions, services more than 85,000 petroleum fueling and storage facilities per year. Tanknology offers more than 30 compliance-related service offerings and holds 22 patents for leak detection and tank monitoring technology.
