Cherry Hill, N.J. - Polar Service Centers has acquired Garafano Tank Service in Paterson, New Jersey. Garafano is a 12-bay facility that will increase capacity and reduce wait times for Polar service customers in the Northeast.

Founded in 1970, Garafano Tank Service holds an “R” stamp certification and has focused on installing truck-mounted tanks, and providing tank truck and tank trailer inspections, coded repairs and tank trailer parts. Peter Garafano, founder and manager, as well as all employees were retained.

“Polar Service Centers is excited to bring its 70+ year legacy of quality service to the Garafano operations,” stated Jerry Cignarella, Senior Vice President, Polar Service Centers. “Expanding our world-class service and parts support enables us to better serve the northern New Jersey and New York markets.”

Additionally, Polar is adding four service bays at its Cherry Hill location. The Garafano acquisition and Cherry Hill expansion are key growth opportunities for Polar Service Centers and strengthen the company in the marketplace.
