Exterior Silo Restoration for a Whey and Milk Manufacturer


Similar Goals, Different Firms work together to complete a silo restoration project.

Milk Specialties, a protein manufacturer in Norfolk, Nebraska, is dedicated to ensuring their customers receive consistent, quality products. They focus on creating ingredients to fully optimize the health and nutrition of animals and people. Through independent third-party audits, they can be sure these goals are accomplished. Furthermore, Milk Specialties understands the importance of their customers, animals, and the environment which is why they support farmers’ animal welfare practices.

In a very similar way, TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) is fervent about taking care of their customers. TMI’s motto is: Safety. Quality. On Time. In that order. TMI has extensive experience with restoring and protecting tanks and silos. All these factors made us a perfect fit to do business with Milk Specialties.

TMI was asked to complete exterior silo restoration on four large milk silos. Our sales staff worked with Milk Specialties to determine which coating would be best suited for the silos. Our experienced field crew applied a coating system with proven success in protecting tanks, distributors, spouts, bins, and other steel structures from corrosion.


  • Prepared surfaces for new coating adhesion by using high-pressure washers, followed by sanding/wire brush cleaning all surfaces with power tools.
  • To limit overspray, TMI used brush and roller to apply PPG’s industrial epoxy rust-inhibitive metal primer and a urethane topcoat.
  • Scaled and applied business logo.


The four milk silos are now fully restored, protected from corrosion, and look picture perfect. Senior Manager Kyle Kramer stated, “TMI did a great job.” Our coating systems are built to last – so Milk Specialties and TMI will be able to provide quality products and services to their customers for many years to come.
