Manchester Tank & Equipment officially opened its new Campbellsville, Kentucky, plant with a ribbon-cutting.

The event included plant tours beginning in the morning, followed by the ribbon-cutting ceremony shortly after. The ceremony was also streamed live on Facebook.

“We’ve had an incredible team and a support of the community – that has overcome so many challenges over the last several months – rally together, pull together for the common goal and have brought us to this moment,” says Nancy Chamblee, president of Manchester Tank. “I am so proud and grateful to be a part of that community and proud to lead that kind of team.”

The 230,000-sq.-ft. facility will manufacture residential propane tanks ranging in size from 120 to 1,000 gallons, as well as mid-sized pressurized air receivers.

The Campbellsville plant will employ 100 team members by the end of the year, the company says.

“Thanks to Manchester Tank, there will be more opportunities for [Kentuckians] this year through the employment of approximately 100 team members by the end of 2020,” says Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear. “I am confident that number will continue to grow as Manchester Tank will play a vital role in the economic life of Campbellsville and Taylor County and our commonwealth overall.”

Manchester Tank, headquartered in Franklin, Tennessee, has been a designer and manufacturer of steel and aluminum low-pressure DOT cylinders and ASME pressure vessels for the storage and transport of propane, chemicals, compressed air and other industrial applications since 1946.

Manchester’s products are used for propane storage, forklifts, fire suppression systems, air compressors, chemical storage and refrigerant systems.
