CEO's Message

Contanda CEO

Welcome to Contanda Terminals. I encourage you to explore all aspects of our website to learn more about our remarkable organization.

Since joining Contanda as the President and CEO in 2016, we have continued to build on the 60-year foundation of being a premier provider of bulk liquid storage and value-added logistics service in North America. Over the years, Contanda has continued to invest in our existing infrastructure while strategically increasing our footprint in areas of growing storage demand in the renewable, petrochemical and hydrocarbon markets.

Contanda Overview

  • Contanda Headquarters is in Houston, Texas where chemical storage demand is high and business activity is brisk.
  • The Contanda team consists of approximately 250 employees with a management team having over 30 years of experience on average to lead our significant growth aspirations.
  • Contanda stores over 7.2 million barrels of bulk commodities in 15 terminals across North America with our predominant storage located in the Gulf Coast Region.
  • More than 60% of our product base is related to the renewable, petrochemical and hydrocarbon markets with the remaining focused on agriculture and food grade markets.

Core Business

We continue to build on our Value Creation Strategy through our Operational and Commercial Excellence programs and capitalizing on growth potential in all regions.

  • In Houston, Texas we optimized our terminal operations staffing schedule to reduce costs and better align ourselves with our customer’s needs and expectations.
  • Major automation projects are ongoing at both of Houston and Stockton terminals.
  • Construction is ongoing on three (3) new tanks at our existing Stockton, California terminal and one (1) new tank at our Sioux City Terminal. All four (4) tanks will be operational in December 2019.
