Our History

Where We Came From

Southeastern Tank was originally founded as Hermitage Harvestore by Charles Dowdy and Frank Osborne in 1977. In 1985, Mr. Dowdy saw an unmet need for liquid storage solutions in municipal and industrial applications. He led the company through the transition – which included a shift in both services, name and premier product, Aquastore. Southeastern Tank, Inc. became a premier provider for water and wastewater storage in the southeast US. But, more importantly, Mr. Dowdy established a reputation for quality, attention to detail, rigorous training, and exceptional customer service. This is the foundation on which Southeastern Tank is firmly built.

Where We're Going

While what we do has evolved to meet customers’ needs, who we are remains constant. Southeastern Tank is committed to helping municipalities and industries find, implement, and maintain the right solutions for their applications – and we do so with end-to-end service, support, and guidance that encompasses far more than storage. We can assist you with water quality, asset management, tank inspection and maintenance, lagoon and lift station mixing to ensure your liquid storage structures deliver maximum value. We are going where you need us to go.
