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.

Tnemec is proud to announce that Destin, Florida, is our 2017 Tank of the Year. With a wrap-around motif depicting the warm, sandy beaches of Florida’s Emerald Coast, the elevated water tank in Destin was artfully painted in 2017 using high-performance Tnemec coatings to help with extended color and gloss retention.

Destin, Fla., was chosen from a total of 12 finalists, including tanks in St. Cloud, Minn.; Eden Prairie, Minn.; Sunnyvale, Calif.; Port Arthur, Texas; Wichita, Kan.; Coopertown, Tenn.; Auburndale, Fla.; Lisle, Ill.; Paxton, Ill.; Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada; and Gaffney, S.C., which received the most votes during the online ballot period to earn the title of 2017 People’s Choice.

Please join us in congratulating Destin, Fla., for winning the Tank of the Year crown. The 2017 Tank of the Year, the People’s Choice tank and all the other finalists will be featured in Tnemec’s annual water tank calendar.
