Specialised Tank Services

About Us

Family-owned Specialised Tank Services (STS) was established in Western Victoria in 1992 and was founded by Richard Holloway, a licensed plumber with extensive experience. Recognising a need for high-quality water storage solutions and tank repairs in the Ballarat region, Richard Holloway and Jenni Holloway sourced a trusted local company called CE Bartlett P/L, known for being an industry leader in manufacturing high-quality and innovative products, to manufacture and supply a high-quality tank liner and an enormous range of other products.

During this time, it became apparent that Victoria, particularly regions like Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Surf Coast, Otway's, Hamilton, Grampians, Warrnambool, and Melbourne, lacked durable and aesthetically pleasing water tanks for both rural and domestic use that are free from common issues like cracking and leaking.

In 1994, after rigorous research and testing, STS became distributors for Pioneer Water Tanks, marking a significant step forward. We expanded into commercial-sized tank repairs and construction, including full project management of comprehensive systems with our commercial specialist partner company, STS CIVIL. Responding to our customers' needs, we ventured into earthmoving services, allowing us to offer a complete package, from site preparation to water tank installation.


For any questions or to request a site inspection, please do not hesitate to contact the STS team. Your satisfaction is our utmost priority, and we are here to provide you with quality solutions to your liquid storage needs.
