Houston, TX – November 2021 – D&H United Fueling Solutions (“D&H United” or the “Company”), a leading supplier of fuel system equipment, installation, and services in the Southwest, announced that it has acquired Valley Tank Testing (“VTT”) of Houston, TX. The acquisition broadens D&H United’s compliance services offerings while providing VTT with additional repair and project services capabilities.
Valley Tank Testing was founded in 2004 by PJ Kane and Brian Berkle, both of whom, have many years of environmental compliance experience.
