Project Spotlight: Utilities Inc. Flooring & Pipe Coatings Application

By: Paul Powers, Induron Sales Representative

As many of us have seen over the years in many markets, the Utilities Inc. maintenance team has relied on hardware, big box stores and commercial paint stores for their maintenance painting needs.

Palmyra Tank Refurbishments
