Just playing devils advocate here
Your point is not neccesarally true. Yes, they supply Glacier (we'll take their word for it at the moment), but Glacier seem to be buying a lot of these tanks so to continue to sell to them the supplier would have to make sure they keep up with their quality.
For this purchase you would be buying a small number (in their terms) of one off tanks and if there is little chance of loosing repeat business (because there is not likely to be any repeat business anyway) you might not get the same treatment as Glacier does.
I have heard of sotries where the first 1, 2, 3, etc. small batches from a supplier in China is perfect then once the $500k order is placed the quality drops off sharply (this could
be because the company actually over extended itself and could not deliver quality in the timeframe rather than intentionally being a dick).
