Kingspan Environmental says the acquisition will open up new international markets for Rhino’s line of water tanks and liners, as well as creating more local manufacturing jobs to keep up with the increased demand.

"We have committed to new leases on our properties and recently purchased new machinery to increase our manufacturing capacity in Australia," Kingspan Environmental commercial director Peter Jeffries says.

"The major benefit is that as a whole company we can now offer a broader range of products such as residential tanks, wastewater tanks, diesel storage tanks, as well as the traditional Rhino range."

Rhino tanks have been a common fixture on rural Australian properties for more than 20 years, but the Kingspan group hopes to build on this and expand further into the residential and commercial sectors.

"Along with our Kingspan Rhino Rural range, we also offer residential made to measure water tanks with capacities ranging from 500 litres to 29,000 litres across the eastern states and our new BioDisc sewage treatment range Australia wide. While our commercial range goes up to a capacity of approximately 2 million litres," Jeffries says.

Although Rhino’s range of tanks remains the same, the company’s traditional Rhino logo is getting a facelift.

"Kingspan’s logo features a lion," Jeffries continues. "So we have updated the Rhino logo to support our parent brand.

"The brand refresh also positions us well to capture new markets around the world. So visibly there are some changes, but our water tanks are the same – they are still made in Perth from BlueScope Steel and lined with the most stable and safest food grade materials available."
