 About Oak Street Tank & Steel

Oak Street Tank and Steel, Inc. is still under the same family ownership as it was in 1912. Some of the names may have changed as the business was handed down through the generations, but the product has stayed basically the same.

The business does more specialty metal work now than anything else, but its beginnings as an automotive garage started a trend in necessity that has lasted nearly 100 years. The roots of the family business reach back to the beginnings of the town of Ashland. Eber Emery, one of the founders of the city of Ashland, was Gene and Gayle Morris' great-grandfather. Gene Morris is the father of Chris (the Office Manager) and Jim (the General Manager).

The original business started as the Oak Street Garage in Lithia Park in 1912 with Simeon Morris. In 1925, Sim and his son Harry opened the Oak Street Garage in what is now the Standing Stone Brewing Co.

The Oak Street Garage practiced welding, blacksmithing and general repair work for the town of Ashland. In the 1930s, it began making steel tanks and soon earned the name Oak Street Tank and Steel, Inc.. In Sept. 1944, the company moved to what is now the A Street Marketplace, where it stayed until 2000. From Sim to Harry to Gene to Jim, the company has evolved through the years and through the generations adapting to the needs of the community.
