Our 44,000 square foot interior blasting and painting facilities provide an immaculate environment for more than 100 paint and finishing professionals.
We offer a wide range of finish options, from epoxy and urethane to specialized tank coatings. Paint and finishes are thoroughly retouched after assembly, both inside the plant prior to delivery as well as at the project’s final site in the field.
Reduce Costs & Speed Production
Our strategy includes the construction of skid based modules in our expansive shops in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After fabrication, assembly and coating, we trial fit and test in our yard, prior to shipment. This allows ISTI to deliver your product to the field knowing that we are ready for assembly. This process reduces your cost and speeds your job to final commissioning.
We strive to give our clients the peace of mind of knowing they can depend on us for expert solutions, first-rate service, and exceptional products delivered on time and exactly to their specifications.

Transportation & Tulsa Port of Catoosa
The 2500 acre Port of Catoosa is Tulsa’s “unsung” shipping hero, delivering a unique capability to Tulsa businesses as one of the largest inland ports in the United States.Located at the head of navigation for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, the Port of Catoosa offers year-round barge, rail and truck transportation services, and can handle and trans-load more than five million tons of cargo per year.
The McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System is a 440-mile waterway linking Oklahoma and the surrounding states to ports on the nation’s inland water transport system. The Port of Catoosa is located at the head of the navigation for the system where the waterway travels to the Mississippi River at Montgomery Point. The 18 locks and dams on the McClellan-Kerr create a “staircase” where, in an average year, 13 million tons of cargo is transported.
In addition to navigable waters, the Port of Catoosa is served by three Class I rail carriers – the BN-SF, the Union Pacific and the Kansas City Southern (via a short line switch on the South Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad). It is a scheduled service point for all three carriers, with rail transit times for most bulk cargo roughly equal to barge within 750 miles and days shorter beyond 1000 miles.
The Port is also served by most nationwide contract trucking carriers averaging over 900 trucks per day. Located in the geographic center of the US, truck traffic can reach either coast in just two days. From the Port of Catoosa, ISTI is able to ship to the Port of Houston via truck in one day and to the Port of New Orleans in 11 to 13 days via barge. The availability of shipping options from the Port of Catoosa is an integral part of the ISTI success story.
