Quala purchases Iowa tank wash company

TAMPA, FL – Quala has purchased Cronbaugh Tank Wash of Cedar Rapids, IA.

The Tampa-based bulk transportation container cleaning company described Cronbaugh as a highly-reputable provider of food-grade solutions.

Cronbaugh is a single location tankwash providing food-grade tank trailer cleaning for liquid and dry bulk trailers. Since Dec. 20, the location has been operated under the Quala brand.

Quala CEO Mike Bauer said the acquisition falls in line with the company’s plan for future growth.

“The purchase of Cronbaugh is a strong strategic move, allowing us to continue to expand our North American footprint and further enhance our overall service offering,” he said.

Terry O’Brien, president of Quala said, “We are tremendously excited to welcome the Cronbaugh team to the Quala family. We look forward to a seamless integration of services while continuing to maintain our dedication to safety, quality and sustainability.”

The new acquisition adds to Quala’s list of existing food-grade facilities including Charlotte NC, Atlanta GA, Chicago IL, West Memphis AR, Jacksonville FL, and Oakville ON.

Quala’s new facility will house two food-grade cleaning bays, two tractor-trailer maintenance bays, and an-site truck scale.

Quala operates in more than 55 locations throughout the United States and Canada.
