Tank of the Year


Since 2006, Tnemec has celebrated the innovative and creative uses of its coatings on water tanks with the annual Tank of the Year contest. Each year, tanks of all varieties from across the U.S. and Canada are narrowed down to determine the most impressive coatings projects in the water tank industry.

The 2016 Tank of the Year is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The elevated tank's artwork depicting native birds and fish was selected from designs that were entered in the city-sponsored "Art in the Sky" contest. The design was completed using an exterior coatings system from Tnemec, including the fluoropolymer finish, Series 700 HydroFlon, for unsurpassed color and gloss retention.

The winner was chosen from 12 runners-up, including Ann Arbor and water tanks in Champaign, Ill.; Garnavillo, Iowa; Gulf Shores, Ala.; La Porte, Texas; Laurens, S.C.; Lumberton, N.C.; Olathe, Kan.; Ontario, Calif.; York, Neb.; and Houston County, Ga., which received the most votes during the online voting process.

Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to all of our winners and runners-up. If you would like to request a copy of the 2017 Tnemec Tank of the Year calendar click here.
