Tanknology Inc., a leading provider of environmental compliance testing and inspection services, has announced the acquisition of Norton Corrosion Limited (NCL), a Woodinville, Washington-based provider of corrosion inspection services, engineering services and high-quality corrosion control products.

Norton also designs proprietary, state-of-the-art products for specialty applications.
“The transaction provides significant benefits to our client base by adding highly skilled employees, bolstering our nation-wide corrosion protection division and offering our clients best in class corrosion protection services. Norton Corrosion shares in our commitment to a customer-centric culture and delivery of a highest quality of service,” said Allen Porter, Tanknology President and CEO.
