April Manufacturer of the Month: Bluegrass Tank & Equipment

Elizabethtown and Hardin County are home to many manufacturers that are innovative leaders in their industries as well as vital contributors to our region’s economy. EHCIF’s Manufacturer of the Month is an opportunity to recognize these companies and increase awareness of the manufacturing activity happening every day right here in the Elizabethtown area.

Established in Elizabethtown in 1972, Bluegrass Tank & Equipment has grown to fill a vital role in the dairy industry in multiple states. The company manufactures custom, stainless steel, food-grade tanks that are used to transport milk from farms to dairy processing facilities.

At its facility on Peterson Drive, where the company has been headquartered since 1985, Bluegrass Tank manufactures about 30 units each year. Consisting of the trailer and stainless steel tank, each unit is fabricated to customer specifications by Bluegrass Equipment’s highly skilled team.  

A family owned company led by founder Richard Davis and his son Todd Davis, Bluegrass Tank also offers repair and maintenance services and has expanded to include satellite repair shops in Florida, Michigan and Texas. Further, its affiliate company T. Davis Sales serves as a dealer of the industry’s leading non-custom food grade trailers and provides rental services.

For decades, Bluegrass Tank has been a valued member of Elizabethtown’s manufacturing community, providing jobs and investing in our local economy. We look forward to the company’s continued success and growth.
