TankLink changed its name to SkyBitz Tank Monitoring as part of a corporate restructuring.
The company promoted its new name at the National Propane Gas Association’s Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville, Tenn. Carl Whitmire, channel marketing manager at Telular Corp., says TankLink’s parent company, Telular, chose to consolidate a few of its business units in January to fall under the SkyBitz brand.
“SkyBitz is a brand that started in vehicle tracking using satellite technology,” Whitmire says. “After Telular bought SkyBitz, the company also purchased our brand, TankLink. Within a few years, the owner thought it was time to consolidate the businesses.”
Whitmire says the consolidation will allow SkyBitz to provide more tank monitoring engineering to support propane retailers.
“The name change gives us more of a broad footprint,” adds David Mack, a sales engineer with SkyBitz. “With the new name and consolidation, we have a little more buying power.”
