About ZCL Composites Inc.
ZCL Composites Inc. engages in the manufacture and distribution of fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) underground storage tanks (UST). These FRP UST products are used primarily in the downstream retail petroleum storage markets and the water and wastewater storage markets. It manufactures both a single wall, and for secondary containment, a double wall tank, to serve these industries.
The company, as an alternative to UST replacements, has developed a FRP tank lining system that allows a single wall steel or fibreglass tank to be upgraded to a corrosion resistant secondary contained storage tank while still in the ground. The lining system is being implemented in North America and Asia. In addition, ZCL manufactures and distributes a patented, three dimensional glass fibre material called Parabeam, which is a main component of double wall tank products and tank lining systems.
The company also manufactures and distributes a line of FRP home heating oil tanks, primarily for the Northeast U.S. and Eastern Canada residential markets. Its business also includes the manufacture and distribution of both FRP and steel aboveground storage tanks and related products and accessories. These products are used primarily in the upstream petroleum, industrial and commercial storage tank markets. In addition, the company can manufacture specialty fibreglass tanks, pipes and stacks for large-scale industrial projects such as the Northern Alberta oil sands.
ZCLs fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) storage tanks are offered in single wall or double wall styles, with single or multiple compartments and generally range in volume from 2,500 litres to 110,000 litres. Standard diameters are 4-foot, 6-foot, 8.5-foot and 10-foot. ZCL also manufactures custom sizes to meet specific needs of customers. The company also manufactures concrete anchors to keep the tanks in place. Prezerver double wall tanks can be dry monitored, pressure or vacuum monitored, or filled with brine in the space between the walls for hydrostatic monitoring.
Parabeam, the companys three-dimensional glass fabric, is used not only for storage tanks and tank liners but also in boats, ships, trucks, cars, trains and as a building material.
ZCLs UL and ULC approved Phoenix System tank liner using Parabeam allows in-situ upgrades of a single wall storage tank to a secondary contained system.
ZCLs aboveground steel tanks and fibreglass-lined steel tanks are used for certain custom industrial applications involving petroleum products and oil and gas production. Aboveground steel tanks are used for certain types of remote locations, such as for the storage of aviation fuel for bush pilots. Above ground fibreglass-lined steel tanks are also offered for the renewable fuels production market, in cases where underground storage is not suitable.
ZCLs FRP aboveground home heating oil tanks hold either 909 litres (200 Imperial Gallons) or 1,137 litres (250 Imperial Gallons) and are marketed in Canada and the U.S. as The Safer Tank. The tanks are available with a single wall or a double wall. The double wall tanks come with a built-in visual sight-glass for easy monitoring.
The main market for tanks and tank liners is storage of refined petroleum products and renewable fuels such as gasoline, diesel fuel, ethanol and biodiesel. Other important markets for tanks are storage of water, waste water and chemicals.
The principal customers of the company's products are: Petroleum products retailers (also known as the downstream petroleum sector), such as service station and convenience store operators; Bulk users of petroleum products, such as trucking companies, car rental agencies and utilities; Oil and gas exploration companies (also known as the upstream petroleum sector), mainly for storage for brine that is sometimes produced as a by-product from underground oil and gas reservoirs; Pulp and paper companies and chemical producers, for the storage of industrial chemicals; and Builders or operators of water storage and wastewater systems for housing projects, campgrounds, resorts and other industrial and real estate developments.
ZCL Composites Inc. was founded in 1987.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
