Flexcon Industries Scholarship

Tom and Joe Swan created Flexcon Industries to offer both wholesale distributors and contractors a high-quality well tank with saleable features at a competitive price. Originally developed with the help of a Dutch partner, Flamco, The Swan's were able to design a tank with a unique water chamber design, controlled action diaphragm (CAD), with several other features that make Flexcon tanks the contractor's choice. Flexcon is the first company to offer a stainless steel water connection on a well tank, a union connection, the first flow thru tank for constant pressure systems, and the first diaphragm composite tank. Flexcon continues to be the innovator in well tanks. This is why we are the reliable source.
