A Message from our President

Stanwade Metal Products, Inc., a "GREEN" company, was founded by my father Stanley L. Woofter, in 1947. We began manufacturing children’s furniture, garden trellises, and custom products from steel, a recyclable material. In 1951, due to a shortage of home heating oil tanks caused by the post World War II housing boom, Stanwade began building the 275 gallon basement tanks to fulfill the local needs.

From humble beginnings, Stanwade grew and began manufacturing a full line of aboveground and underground fuel and chemical storage tanks, and, quickly acquired a reputation for quality and service. The Stanwade sales force now has an average of 30 plus years experience in fuel storage, fuel dispensing, and fuel management systems and are eager to assist you with your needs, large or small.
