New Polytanks

The JL Houston company in Hopkins is expected to start producing the plastic storage tanks in February. The process, being used now in Israel, uses a different kind of plastic and molding technology that allows the manufacturer to create poly-plastic tanks many times larger and thicker than has ever been done in the US. Company owner Ron Houston says he convinced his new partner to look at rural Missouri for the location of the new venture. The new venture is expected to create about 15 new jobs by mid-year.
