The members of the STI/SPFA Field Erected Tank Section build steel tanks that meet or exceed the requirements of AWWA, NSF, API and industry standards. Members of STI/SPFA produce elevated, reservoir and standpipe water storage tanks. They also produce storage tanks for the petrochemical industry and special storage systems.
Tanks can be designed to hold from 50,000 to several million gallons, are provided with foundations, and often finished with elaborate painted graphics and color schemes. Tanks may incorporate cathodic protection and piping. Some water tank designs allow for several floors, office space and other facilities. Private, municipal, and industrial water system engineers and operators specify steel tanks for their reliability, long-term value, and low, predictable normal maintenance.

The Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association gives a number of awards each year to Member companies. The awards commend outstanding records in quality of product, safety achievements at Member facilities, and outstanding projects completed by Members.
The Awards recognize steel construction projects and products of Member Companies that exemplify the steel tank industry. These projects and products serve to bring attention to the positive qualities and flexibility of steel as the production material of choice for many industries, and so we honor winning members with these awards.
