Painting and coatings run in the Philipp family.
68 YEARS EXPERIENCE
For five generations, Coatings Unlimited has grown from a sole New Orleans painter to Midwest coating specialist to nationwide service provider. During that time, Coatings Unlimited has helped protect some of North America’s most ambitious projects. From the Department of Defense and nationally recognized food manufacturers to regional utility providers and local sewer districts, our team of certified specialists are committed to completing every project on time and under budget, with no surprises or safety incidents.
Environmental, health, and safety are engrained into our culture. At Coatings Unlimited, we firmly believe that no job is worth the life and wellbeing of any one of our team members or the community around us. For nearly 70 years, our team has worked diligently to create and sustain a culture of safety by taking a proactive approach to task-specific training, education, and responsibility. We believe safety is a responsibility we all share.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality work while protecting the surrounding environment, natural resources, and the safety and well-being of the community, our customers, employees, and all others involved on our project sites.
We are nothing without the men and women on the frontlines of our operation. These painters and blasters have built us from a small regional contractor into a nationwide firm known for innovation and integrity.
As our founder, Fred Philipp Senior, always said, “We’re in the business of making friends” and that still holds true today. Each job relies on people and values that have carried us here, always with the aim to be invited back.
We specialize in bringing custom solutions to specialized industries. Our combination of education, equipment, and attention to detail equips our team to anticipate surface preparation and coating issues, whatever the industry, before they become significant challenges. Through a combination of service expertise, pre-planning, and environmental, health, and safety measures, our team can step into a variety of facilities and perform our tasks on-time, under budget, with minimal downtime and less risk.
The industrial processing environment creates dozens of contaminants for food and beverage manufacturers. Caustics, fats, mold, mildew, heat, and cold can all leave goods unfit for human or animal consumption. Our team can minimize downtime and help ensure facilities meet AMPP standards.
Few locations carry the same risk for fire, corrosion, and water damage as heavy manufacturing facilities. From treating the plant floor to ceiling fireproofing, this process requires keen attention to detail and industry experience to perfect. Let our team help extend the lifetime value of your equipment.
Process plants may include over 30 million square feet of exposed piping, vessels, structures, and equipment that must be protected from corrosion. With over twenty different coating systems for varying conditions, these facilities require highly specialized expertise, planning, and assurance to deliver the proper services without disrupting production.
Mining is an unforgiving environment. By renewing equipment surfaces, site operators can increase the lifetime value of their equipment while reducing maintenance costs and unexpected downtime. More importantly, proper experience and application under Mine Safety and Health Administration guidelines can help protect mine workers from air born particles and fire hazards.
From regulations to potency, pharmaceutical facilities rely on maintaining sterile conditions to meet customer identified performance standards. At Coatings Unlimited, our team of professionals align with site facilitators for specific facility training and protocols for these highly sensitive environments.
Fossil fuels, hydro, and nuclear power generation all come with their own fire, corrosion, and water considerations. Putting in the work to prepare plant facilities can help extend the ROI and lifetime value of your equipment while reducing the impact of harmful byproducts like radiation.
Whether it be highly abrasive wood chips, bleaches, or other caustic chemicals, the processing of paper goods is uniquely suited to destroy production equipment. The right coatings partner can help protect your facility and staff from these elements and keep your operation running smoothly.
