“I don’t even remember when I started to be attracted by the industry, factories and engineering. I was raised in Tarragona, the largest chemical hub in the Mediterranean, which has an important industrial port. I do remember being on the beach with my father, looking at the ships waiting to enter the port. As a child, I loved the night-time view of the refinery with its thousands of twinkling lights and I always wondered what the people working there did.
The tank storage industry is unique in what it offers us. The facilities are mainly located in port areas, meaning open spaces, the sea, and hectic activity. It is a highly specialised industry so it means you stay in touch with new cutting-edge technology, new requirements and high standards. It is a critical industry for our customers, so they pressure us to deliver our best. It is an industry that handles dangerous goods and that means we must remain very conscious of the risks.
In our business, safety and a holistic respect for the environment – and here I mean not just the traditional aspects of quality, health, security and environmental protection but also respect for current and future customers, co-workers, suppliers and the communities in which we are located – is paramount.
Handling dangerous goods is predominantly about taking care of our customers’ products while controlling their risks: safety comes first, without a doubt. But sustainability is also becoming essential for long-term businesses alike tank storage: we must minimise our environmental impact while reducing our energy consumption. This challenge means we have to be lean and sustainable in our organisational and our financial structures.
At Tepsa we say
“Leading for results through people”. This shows our dedication to our team as: they are the ones who we rely on to handle the products with care, efficiency and passion. This industry also throws constant new challenges at us, which inspires you to get out of bed in the morning!
