Profil - 1960erne – Tunetanken bliver grundlagt

1960s – Tunetanken is founded

Tunetanken was founded in 1968 by Børge Christensen and brothers Helge and Karl Hovad. The three imaginative men had come up with a new production method of round, corrosion-free underground tanks made of fiberglass.

Although environmental protection wasn’t yet a public concern as it is today, it was known that the underground tanks formerly used for e.g. heating oil, were a ticking pollution-bomb for the groundwater.

Spherical Tunetanken tanks were fabricated in fiberglass-reinforced polyester, which made them resistant to corrosive content, while the round shape made the tanks resistant to soil pressure, thus enabling the customers to safely place tanks in different types of soil. Production of first spherical tanks, which were destined to become a huge success, took place on Børge’s estate in the Tune village near town Roskilde.

Profil - 1970erne – Tunetanken udvider

1970s – Tunetanken expands

Possibilities provided by the new fiberglass production method, together with the entrepreneurial spirit of the three founders, led Tunetanken to product range expansion, adding agricultural silos in the early 70’s.

The first 6 silos were set up on a chicken farm in Esbjerg back in 1973. This development was crucial for Tunetankens’ success, as agriculture came to be one of the largest markets for Tunetanken. The company has since made an impact on both Danish agriculture and landscape.

Due to the development of several new products, as well as the increasing demand from existing and new markets, Tunetanken remained busy during 70’s. In this period a decision was made to move the production to the current address in St. Andst – a village located between Koldning and Esbjerg.

1980s – Danish quality crosses borders

During the 80’s, Tunetanken established itself as an important player in the Danish market, waking the foreign markets’ demand for Danish quality products. The need for durable, corrosion-free silos and tanks especially increased in Germany and the other Nordic countries. Therefore, during this decade Tunetankens’ solutions by all means crossed boarders in creating value. Foreign markets in Sweden, Norway and UK became particularly important for export.

Foreign interest in Danish quality as well as the overall positive reputation of Denmark, were greatly important for the development of the Tunetankens’ business foundation. While many Danish companys moved their production abroad, Tunetanken on the other hand, chose to keep the production running in Denmark, this way maintaining the ability to deliver Danish quality products quickly for customers across both sides of the border. Even after 50 years of being in the market, experience confirms, that keeping the production close to the development notably improves quality as well as reduces delivery-time.

Profil for Tunetanken A/S

1990s – Tunetanken stands the test of weather

In the 90’s Tunetanken became a sub-contractor of base components for the wind turbine manufacturer Vestas. Durable composite materials and their resistance to climate influences proved to be particularly suitable for the production of the wind turbines, which must be able to withstand e.g. the harsh Nordic weather.

In 1999, Tunetanken once again stood the test against the Danish weather, as merely 6 out of 15.000 Tunetankens’ silos were damaged during a December hurricane, drawing attention that most of the damage was caused by the fallen trees, loose roofing sheets etc.

During this period the solvent storage tank for iron chloride was introduced as part of Tunetanken’s product programme. Solvent storage tanks were mainly delivered to wastewater treatment plants in Denmark and Sweden, to be used in the process of precipitation of phosphates in the wastewater. Tunetankens’ solvent storage tanks quickly became popular due to their resistance to corrosive contents, as well as the soil pressure, as solvent tanks are often placed underground.

2000s – Tunetanken bets on development and export

After a decade of growth as well as development in new business areas, Tunetanken met the new millennium with an expansion of old production buildings at St. Andst. The new buildings, primarily built to house the administration, were ready to use in 2001.

In 2002 Tunetanken ventured into a new area of business – the sewage treatment industry, with a focus on the renovation of old sewer wells. This development led to a collaboration with Per Aarsleff Rørteknik A/S, during which a groundbreaking system for renovating old sewer wells was developed. The new system made it possible to mount new fiberglass wells inside the old ones. Such new solution became especially popular within the Danish municipalities, as it proved to save costs spent on construction and excavation work as well as on new wells.

During this decade, the company drew a lot of attention to export. At this point, having established a number of regular export markets, Tunetanken chose to further expand in the German market. The efforts yielded export among others to Singapore and Yemen.

This period was equally significant to the development of the Tunetanken silo programme. In 2006 a record-breaking feed silo reaching 75 m3 and an airtight grain silo of 215 m3 were launched.

2010s – Innovative solutions strengthen the business

Throughout this decade Tunetanken kept the focus on the development. In 2010 Tunetanken launched the salt silo, which was a further improvement of the solvent storage tank for iron chloride. The demand for salt silos, that can ensure a precise and easy mixing process especially increased in Germany. In 2012 Tunetanken launched the new Full-Flow bottom outlet system, which provided efficient emptying of the silo and prevented foder from piling up and thus diminishing the footer quality. Same year, Tunetanken developed a new air in-blowing system which met the new requirements for modern supply trucks. The new system was able to reduce the time used to blow the media in by almost 40% while maintaining the high foder quality, thus providing great savings opportunities throughout logistics.

In 2012 Tunetanken also acquired a company called Fiberteam in order to strengthen the service department. By bringing in the competence in maintenance and renovation of fiberglass tanks Tunetanken was able to provide better customer service. In 2013 Tunetanken improved once again by complying with EU food contact legislation in accordance to EU regulation 10/2011/EC, which enabled the company to manufacture materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. This new approval ment that from then on customers received full guaranty that Tunetankens’ products were manufactured using only the approved commodities which do not release any residue when in contact with food. The new approval was particularly well received by Tunetankens’ customers within the food, medicinal and cosmetics industries.
