Amtrol Scholarship

AMTROL was founded in 1946 on the premise that innovation, quality and service will be rewarded with customer loyalty and support. In 1954, we revolutionized the hydronic industry when we introduced EXTROL®, the world’s first pre-pressurized diaphragm expansion tank. This was followed in 1963 with the invention of the first pre-pressurized well tank and in 1967 with the invention of the refrigerant gas cylinder. AMTROL went on to invent the indirect fired water heater in 1980 and the thermal expansion tank in 1991. More recently the company introduced the first composite metal LP gas tank in 2005 and has since sold over 1 million of these tanks around the world. Throughout our history, AMTROL has been the world leader in the design and operation of the vital mechanical systems that are used to control hydronic heating and to store potable water.

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.
