The Wine Country's Premier Choice for Water Tanks!

American Tank Co. is America's leader in corrugated steel riveted water tank manufacturing and installation.  Boasting the only hand crafted tank manufacturering process in the U.S., American Tank produces water containment tanks sized from 5,000 to 150,000 gallons.  Veteran craftsmen shape flat sheets of American steel into corrugated tank sides and assemble them in our Windsor California manufacturing facility, or on-site throughout the Western U.S. Our tanks have become the favorite of the wine industry, agriculture, residential fire suppression, and industrial applications.  

In 2012 American Tank Co. owner and Wine Country resident Mark Luzaich added to his company the venerable steel tank icon, BH Tank, to his 20 year old tank company. Public Market

To insure the unique trade skills and experience were not lost, Mark hired the previous BH Tank owner Bob Harasta to join the company.  He joined a team craftsmen who are some of the last to know how to hand craft these nearly industructible tanks.  Since that transition the company has grown significantly each year. 

In 2016 American Tank opened their new manufacturing and business headquarters in the heart of the Wine Country in Windsor, CA.  It features high effeciency environmentally conscious enhancements including stay cool concrete floors, natural lighting to reduce energy costs, LED lighting when needed, and their own rainwater harvesting tanks to capture and re-use rainwater as irrigation for the xeroscape that beautifies the exterior.

American Tanks: They Are American Made
17 July, 2020

American Tank Co. (BH Tank) has been manufacturing water tanks since 1938. We specialize in corrugated steel, self-anchoring field erected tanks. These tanks meet California Build Code (CBC) NSF-61 & NFPA-22 Standards and come with CA Wet-Stamped Engineering for the tank and foundation. Many of our tanks are designed to be installed on a gravel ring foundation and make anchors or an expensive concrete foundation unnecessary.

Over the past 100 years, hand riveted corrugated steel tanks have proven themselves as the preferred water storage choice for wineries, commercial, residential, and industrial applications.

Our tanks are professionally engineering to meet all Building, Health and Fire Code Requirements including NSF-61 and NFPA-22, with site specific Seismic, Wind and Deck Loads as mandated by the CBC, UBC and IBC building codes.

Our mill galvanized tanks are factory coated providing a multi-layer system of mechanical and cathodic protection. We offer tanks with Farbertite, Powder Coat, or heavy duty Industra-Liner interior coating options. Classic Corrugated tanks have one of the best engineered life cycle cost values in the industry.

American Tank’s New Windsor Facility Wins Top Projects Award
13 December, 2016

501 American Way, Windsor CA.


WINDSOR – Wine Country corrugated galvanized steel riveted water tank manufacturer, American Tank, was selected as a recipient of the North Bay Business Journal's "Top Green Projects Award".

American Tank Co., Inc. (ATC) takes great pride in its “Made in America” commitment at its new 21,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution center at 501 American Way in Windsor. The firm designs, manufactures and installs their Classic Corrugated Galvanized Steel Water Tanks all over the western United States with a heavy emphasis on Northern California.

Company Owner and President Mark Luzaich worked closely with Architect Robert Moore to incorporate numerous “Green” components into the building design, including beams derived from 70% recycled steel, interior & exterior siding re-purposed from salvaged redwood water tanks, natural ventilation and lighting via glass roll-up doors, LED lighting, high efficiency HVAC systems and zero maintenance polished concrete floors.

Their landscaping features drought tolerant plantings watered by a ATC’s own rainwater harvesting system and bio-retention swales. The final product is an ultra-low maintenance building with a variety of high efficiency, sustainable features. “We wanted our corporate headquarters to be a beautiful addition to the Town of Windsor at our location just off tree-lined Conde Lane,” said Luzaich. “Getting up and running quickly was greatly aided by the fact that this project was the first of its kind in Windsor to receive design review approval through an administrative hearing. With such high market share (and backlog) in Sonoma and Napa counties, Windsor was the absolute perfect location for building our new factory”.”

His plans include bringing many manufacturing jobs to the community for those who want to work in a green building with a clean working environment where “Made in America is at the heart of everything we do.” According to Luzaich, skilled craftsmen “hand” punch, corrugate and roll galvanized  steel panels inside their new facility using American steel and specialized heavy machinery.  “Building corrugated tanks is a lost art and we love keeping this historic trade alive and thriving in Windsor.”.  Completed tank panels are then assembled into finished tanks inside the shop or field erected onsite by our specially trained crews.  Tanks are designed to meet all local building codes and usually include “wet-stamped” engineering & calcs. Classic Corrugated tanks are increasingly popular for their architectural and aesthetic values as well as their inherent cost effectiveness.  Capacities range from 300 to 500,000 gallons and major customer categories include wineries, vineyard owners, food processors, homeowners, government contractors, mutual & municipal water utilities and many more.  Landmark Associates was the general contractor for this project supported by Brelje & Race Consulting Engineers (Civil), MKM Associates (Structural), TEP Engineering (Mechanical), PJC & Associates (Soils Engineering) and Parker Smith Landscape Architect.  For more information go to
