Employer Spotlight: Holloway America

We design and build custom pressure vessels, tanks, and equipment that solve problems and make life better for all those who use them. Since 1949, our master tank fabricators have lived and breathed custom steel fabrication. We’ve researched, engineered, and fabricated ASME tanks, CNC machining procedures, and the other products and services to solve process problems for our customers. It starts with impeccable design and finishes with an unsurpassed level of fabrication that brings concepts to life in a long-lasting, stainless-steel masterpiece.
