“This is perhaps the best-equipped shop in the region to perform significant repair work on commercial tanks,” said Mike Evans, president of Polar Service Centers. “It also has the inventory to be the leading source of aftermarket parts for dry and liquid bulk tank trucks and trailers in the Portland area.”
Other services at Portland include CHM-183 and DOT inspections; tractor rig-outs and tank-trailer customization; and sales of new and used tank trucks and trailers.
