Facility Description

Operating in the heart of Missouri, this client manages a significant facility dedicated to the production and processing of food items. Integral to its operations is the extensive use of industrial tanks, which are vital for the storage and processing of raw materials and finished products. The maintenance of these tanks is crucial to ensure the uninterrupted flow of production and adherence to safety and quality standards.

Requested Maintenance

The focus of the project centered on the interior preparation and painting of one of their key industrial tanks. This required meticulous planning and execution to address the challenges presented by confined spaces and the need for durable, high-quality finishes.
