Have what it takes to be on Team ST?

We’re looking for talented team members who share our core values. To be successful here, you need to be prepared to deliver. These phrases are the foundation of who we are and how we do business:

• Serve the customer above all else: everyone is a customer…suppliers, coworkers …and the customer is the reason we exist today and in the future. This means we strive to treat our team members with world class customer service.

• Do what you say you will do: We earn trust by being dependable. As an employee, you can expect that we will follow through on our commitments.

• Understand the value of reputation: Every touch our customers have with Seneca Tank either builds or erodes confidence in our brand. At Seneca Tank, you will never be placed in a position where you are asked to lie, cheat, or commit ethical violations to do your job. We guard your reputation.

• Whatever you do, do it well: Seeking progress rather than perfection, we strive for excellence. This starts by putting the right people in the right seats within our company so that all can succeed.

• Put in more than you take out: We are providers, not just consumers. By continual reinvestment in our business and team, our company becomes stronger, we have more career advancement opportunities, and our community flourishes.

Are you ready to deliver?

The commercial work truck industry is one of the most important industries in our nation. Work trucks haul the fuel in your car’s tank, collect your garbage, and put food on your table.

Our niche serves the entire work truck industry, with emphasis on Systems for Tank Truck Unloading & Mobile Fluid Power.

Tank trucks haul liquids as well as dry products in bulk. We work with tank truck carriers to equip their trucks with customized unloading systems capable of conveying products from chemicals, to foods, and even cement.

Mobile Fluid Power is a technology that packages hydraulic systems designed to run off the transmission of a vehicle to operate various accessories on the truck. These systems are found on tow trucks cement trucks and many more applications.

This is why we say “We deliver so you can©”.

Make an impact

Not only does our work matter, but there is more to Seneca Tank than our bottom line. Seneca Tank operates on an 80/20 philosophy when it comes to profits. Eighty percent of our earnings are retained for further reinvestment. This allows us to grow our business, serve more customers, and provide more career advancement opportunities. The remainder is reserved to “share” our profits with stakeholders. Not only do we have competitive commission, bonus, and profit sharing programs, but we also support our community. Ten percent of each and every dollar made goes to charitable non-profit organizations within our community.

Since 1973

The Seneca Difference is our attention to detail, and ability to provide a fully integrated system. This approach ensures optimum truck body life and system performance while delivering at a lower total cost of ownership.

We believe in maintaining responsible profit margins that are competitive and repeatable. The majority of our business is repeat business, which means our customer’s success is our success.

We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our great team. We have more than 10 team members that have been part of the Seneca Tank family for over 20 years.
