Award-winning tanks are featured in the company’s annual wall calendar and included in promotional materials throughout the following year.

More than 150 projects competed for the award last year.

 Tnemec's 2010 Tank of the Year
Tnemec’s 2010 Tank of the Year, in Newton, KS, was inspired by the Blue Sky Sculpture.

The winner was a 500,000-gallon composite pedestal tank in Newton, KS, featuring exterior artwork designed to reflect a blue Kansas sky filled with white clouds. The design was inspired by a local sculpture that was named one of the “8 Wonders of Kansas Art.”

Established in 1921, Tnemec manufactures more than 120 industrial and architectural coatings products for new construction and maintenance of steel, concrete and other substrates.
