B.J.R.E.O. Information

Joseph R. Olmsted could visualize the need for a fabrication shop to complement his tank fabrication and services company, Olmsted, Inc., so Olmsted bought Vincent's Welding Shop in 1990.

The fabrication shop was originally owned and operated by Vincent Siarnicki from approximately 1954 to 1990 as an ASME pressure vessel shop. The name was gradually changed over the years to B.J.R.E.O. Inc. and today we are a diversified shop with multiple capabilities for ASME pressure vessels, API and AWWA tanks and tank appurtenances, and structural and piping fabrications.

Joe Olmsted started Olmsted, Inc. in 1986 after spending his entire adult life working as a boilermaker. His engineering knowledge of the tank business was well known even though he did not have a P.E. certification.

Joe knew this business very well from both the field and office aspects. His philosophy was to always give back to those who helped the business. He expected everyone to be honest and hard working, but he gave a lot back in return for that hard work.

He had a unique sense of business and a great sense of humor, and the talent and aptitude for keeping clients as well as employees happy, even when discussions were heated.

Joe and his wife Marie were successful business partners. In May, 2004, Joe passed away and Marie continues to run both B.J.R.E.O. and Olmsted, Inc.
