Our story began in 1975 after Tom Langhals quit his factory job to focus on farming

With a little too much time left on his hands, Tom decided to sandblast and repaint some of his used farm equipment. The neighbors took note and asked him to do the same for them. And, with that, a company was born.

Over the decades, Colonial Surface Solutions has grown to become so much more than a simple sandblast and paint shop in Columbus Grove, Ohio. What started as a one-man operation out in the family barn has grown into a business respected nationally for outstanding customer service and a dedication to excellence. We have become an industry leader in cleaning and coating applications, specializing in industrial, commercial, military and agricultural products for any size company.

Today, we employ an experienced and quality-focused team in our state-of-the-art facility. Our staff is comprised of NACE-certified professionals who are dedicated to their craft. Our facility features top-of-the-line equipment that is capable of handling both small and large jobs, meaning we are able to meet almost any cleaning and coating need you may have.

For close to 50 years, Colonial Surface Solutions has been passed down to a new generation of the family, yet the original vision of Colonial surface Solutions remains the same. Our goal is to make your future look brighter by exceeding your expectations.
