Soon the Corolla became a construction trailer and the trailer became an office and then there was a full-fledged steel fabrication shop on the property. Paul was later promoted to Sales Manager, and was appointed Vice President in 1992. Fisher Tank Company was beginning to outgrow its property in Lexington, SC,
Fast forward to 2010 when the company moved into its brand new state of the art facility in Leesville, SC. Paul oversaw the construction process of the steel fabrication faciilty with in house plate blasting equipment, an environmentally controlled paint booth, plate rolling and cutting equipment and a fittings shop, as well as an office housing sales, engineering, safety, project managment, construction management, and quality control personnel.

He steps into the office of President on the heels of remarkable leaders who've provided tremendous guidance and dedication to the success of Fisher Tank and its employees and customers. Our current past President, Michael Szelak, who's been with Fisher Tank since 1967 and led the company in an executive role for more than 27 years, will continue as CEO and Chairman of the Board. Paul is also an active member of the Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association, a trade association representing fabricators of steel construction products and their suppliers, and currently serves as Chairman of the Field Erected Section Committee.
