TMI Coatings has been recognized by Fortune 500 company Sherwin-Williams as a 2020 Impact Reward honorable mention for our project for St. Paul Regional Water Services:

“The honorable mention project focused on the potable water storage side of the water and wastewater industry. It involved the inside and outside restoration of a 500,000-gallon water tower for Saint Paul Regional Water Services in St. Paul, Minnesota. Inside the tower, applicators from TMI Coatings installed a zinc/epoxy/epoxy lining system that had recently secured industry approval for potable water storage, making this the first tower to feature the interior lining. In addition, applicators used a zinc/epoxy/polyurethane system with excellent color and gloss retention on the exterior.”
