Western Global Turns 60

We're celebrating 60 years of being ready

Starting as a family business manufacturing trailers in 1962, Western has evolved into a global leader in fuel storage solutions. This month we are celebrating this milestone across all our offices. And we thank all our employees and customers who have helped shape the company’s reputation for excellence.

“At Western Global, we have a 60-year history of readying customers for whatever the job site or industry demands. Our longevity in the market allows us to understand what the industry is looking for and provide innovative and reliable solutions that are our customers trust.”  (John Cleary, Vice President of Sales – Americas)

Key milestones in Western Global’s history  

1962- Western Global was founded as a trailer manufacturer. Western operated with that focus until the local fire department asked if water tanks could be placed on trailers. 

1962 – 1972 – the company was founded, and Western Global introduced a transportable water tank. 

2002 – After decades of manufacturing water tanks, Western launched the first TransCube Global fuel tank in 2002.

From round tanks to the very first cube tank 


The TransCube Global was Western Global’s debut to the fuel storage industry and has since become the industry benchmark of all transportable cube-shaped tanks. This innovative fuel tank is designed in our renowned cube-shape and is easily transportable on site, even when filled with fuel. 

Since then, we have focused on the fuel industry and expanded throughout North America and Europe. 

“Our focus on fuel storage solutions sets us apart from our competitors. While other manufacturers focus on fuel tanks as one of many products, we’ve put our assets toward developing world-class solutions for the fuel industry.” (John Cleary, Vice President of Sales – Americas).

#FutureReady with the latest fuel storage solutions

We’re excited to enter a new wave of next-generation fuel storage and help customers prepare for the demands of an ever-changing job site. For example, renewable diesel is on the rise and is making waves throughout the industry.

What’s renewable diesel?

Renewable diesel, a sustainable, low-carbon biofuel derived from waste products and other biomass, reduces emissions by up to 85 percent. Western Global designs on-site fuel tanks to be renewable diesel ready as a proactive approach. This allows customers to easily switch from regular petroleum diesel to renewable diesel in a timeframe that works best for them without needing to change their fuel storage.

It’s our job to ensure you receive the right solutions for both and the future. By listening to our customers on the ground and innovating from within, our engineers have been able to stay a step ahead in developing tomorrow’s fuel storage solutions.
