Why Choose Largo?
Largo Tank & Equipment Inc. was established in 1995 when Michael Barker and David Wagoner purchased the Farmington location of VIM Trailer, Inc. Both Mike and Dave had been employed by VIM Trailer; Mike started in sales in 1976 and finished up as the President of VIM in Wichita, KS. Dave started working as a shop hand in 1979 for Kersten Trailers, which VIM bought in 1981. Dave took over as the General Manager of the Farmington Location in 1983, and stayed in that position through 1995.
Largo had a rough start – less than six months after purchasing the business, Dave was burned fighting a Crude Tank fire for the Bloomfield Fire Department. His volunteer spirit landed him in the hospital for months, but the strength of the partnership and Mike’s experience helped the company survive. Within a few short years, the company grew from 4 employees to over 40, and we take great pride in the fact many of our employees have been with us for ten, twenty and even thirty years. Mike retired in 2019, and we wish him a very happy retirement. Both Mike and Dave’s sons work for Largo Tank, Heath and Adam, and the company’s future is brighter than ever!
Our company’s lineage can be traced back to the 1930’s.
Moser Tank started as a one man operation, and tank heads were hammered by hand in a sand pit. This manufacturing method also served as the company wellness program… The company eventually adopted Vernon Moser’s Initials’, V.I.M., which became the official name when VIM purchased the shop from Moser in the late 1960’s. VIM grew rapidly in the Wichita area, and expanded into Farmington with the purchase of Kersten Trailer Sales’ facility. Kersten itself is still in operation in the Denver Area. VIM Farmington became Largo Tank & Equipment, Inc. when Mike and Dave purchased the business in 1995.

Our Simple Promise to You:
In the brutal oilfield environment, we live and work in, we found out early on that no matter how well we build or engineer something, things can go wrong. Between the washboards of Rosa Road, wildfires in the Santa Fe National Forest or the Tunnels in the underground Coal mine, our customers tend to push our products to the limit, which is exactly what they are designed for. We also know that despite our best efforts, we can make mistakes when it comes to building, engineering and servicing your equipment.
So the big question is, how do we handle problems that happened because of something we did wrong? The simple answer is, we stand behind what we do. If we make a mistake, we will fix or replace any defective products as fast as possible. No fine print or hidden rules, and no receipts needed for returns or service.
Naturally we cannot cover things like paint chips, light bulbs, abuse, wrecks, and wear and tear.
If the product you bought from Largo Tank does not meet your expectations, we want to know so we can help you with it and make it better. All our products are a “Work in Progress”, meaning, we are continually changing and improving them. Mostly, product improvements come from our customers suggestions!
Our goal is: “Build it right every time”. We want you to buy from us again, recommend us to others, even brag about us, and show you that Largo Tank’s products are built Oilfield Tough!
If you don’t think we’re performing up to your standards, let us know!
