Fuelchief has expanded its range with the recent purchase of the Ashburton-based Sebco fuel storage business.

As the manufacturer of the well-known Sebco 'Diesel Station', Fuelchief managing director Joe Deck says the acquisition brings a valuable 'Made in New Zealand' addition to its business.

"Sebco's range of products have become the benchmark for diesel and AdBlue storage on farms across New Zealand and we wish to thank Ed and Leah Harrison for their efforts over the past 14 years making their products what they have become today," Deck says.

"The Sebco range of products are designed for on-farm or on-site fuel storage coming in sizes from 500 litres to 9500 litres and are proven and trusted by thousands of customers since 2007."

Deck says Sebco's products have robust polyethylene construction and components, so they won't degrade, rot or rust - even in the most demanding locations.

"The smart thinking and unique bunded designs lead the market with features such as condensation control, spill containment, stowage, weather and dust proof design, access control, night light, pump and metering options and safety compliance that others envy," he adds.

Based in Christchurch, Fuelchief has more than 40-years' experience in the bulk fuel storage industry. The company is a manufacturer and distributor of a wide range of fuel tank products, along with fuel management systems and accessories.

Deck says the company has also expanded into overseas markets - including Australasia and the Pacific.

"Including the range of Sebco products means that Fuelchief now has it covered for all safe and legal storage requirements of diesel, petrol, AdBlue, oils, chemicals and fertigation products."
