Fisher Tank has been CSX's primary tank contractor for over 15 years during which they have proven themselves to be an invaluable partner. The nature of their work necessitates an understanding of different CSX departments and developing a plan to accomplish the project without disrupting operationsTheir strengths come from a commitment to safety, being cost conscious, and developing relationships with terminal personnel.

Our safety department did a complete audit on your operation. They relayed their findings to our project management and they said it was one of the best operations they have seen on site. Your group has gone above and beyond to identify diamond category (the potential to seriously hurt or kill someone) items, and they have been indicating those on their daily JHA/JSAs
We have also received multiple reports of how receptive your group is to feedback, and how great they are to work with. In our weekly schedule meeting, our project manager re-iterated how well our subs have been doing, and recognized your group by name as having an outstanding JHA/JSA. 
Thanks for your group's attention to safety on this site, and for the outstanding work they have been doing.

just wanted to say thanks for removing our tank bottom floor out of Tank #114. The crew you sent under the direction of Doug Hill did an excellent job. I have never seen something like this done before. I did learn a few things from Doug, he certainly has a lot of knowledge.

The guys are hard workers and I have no complaints at all. They started every day early and worked even past my scheduled hours. I would check on them often to see how the progress was going and I always noticed they were being safe. Hardhats and safety glasses were on at all times and oh yes…definitely the ear-plugs. Also the area they were in was picked up and organized. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Thank you for having Doug Hill and his Crew build our DI Tank. It has been a great pleasure working with all of these guys! They are some of the hardest working men that I have worked with in a very long time. You folks at Fisher can and should be very proud to have ALL of these men…They have gone the Extra mile here at Perryman 6 with SAFETY and [they were] STILL able to meet our schedule. Doug and his [crew] showed that you can work safely and still complete your work on time. Thanks for all the hard work."

I have to respond quickly to opportunities, and Fisher helps me be more successful by understanding that. They respond with urgency and with a willingness to help me put together winning bids. They always seem to understand that we're in this together.

I wanted to take a moment to commend your crews on a job well done during the 2013 6A Coal Silo Rebuild. I would specifically like to recognize Doug Hill for his efforts during the project. As you (and he) are aware I had some concerns at the beginning of the project. Quite quickly though, all Doug did was prove me wrong shift-after-shift and day-after-day. 

Doug has a tremendous work ethic. Additionally, his planning and schedule updates were spot on. I would ask that if Fisher Tank is successful in securing the 2014 silo re-build Doug returns as superintendent.

"(I've been) thinking about the past weeks on the job with James [James Orr, Fisher Tank Company Field Foreman]. As a supervisor with DiMarco Construction for many years, I have never worked with a better person than James. Doing work at Bettis for almost 10 years, there are not many people that can work there, but James managed to complete the project as a true professional of his trade. Your company is truely blessed to have him."
