Some of the world’s leading construction chemical and coating technology brands have come together to form The Euclid Group. These brands – all subsidiaries of RPM International Inc. – include Euclid Chemical, Eucomex, Toxement, Cave, Viapol, Flowcrete, RPM Belgium and Vandex. The formation of the new Group creates an advanced manufacturer of speciality chemicals and smart building solutions with strategically located infrastructure and offices around the world. Additionally, the combined product portfolio positions the Group as a leading supplier of innovative, high quality and future-proof solutions to the global construction, structural and civil engineering industries.
Describing The Euclid Group as a powerful union of some of the world’s most trusted chemical and coating technology brands, the newly appointed President, Mark Greaves observes that the complementary technologies and geographies of the businesses enable clients, regardless of their location, to have access to the comprehensive product offering.
Each of the operating businesses will sit equally under The Euclid Group umbrella but will now also be able to manufacture and supply additional construction chemical solutions according to local demand and production capabilities.
The Euclid Group will consist of 34 manufacturing facilities in 14 countries, and have a sales presence in 55 countries and more than 2,100 members of staff. This structure will enable brands to generate mutual growth by leveraging existing market position, selling channels and brand recognition to promote new brands and new products in new places.
The combined product portfolio of the new Group includes concrete admixtures, chemical fibres, construction products, mining and tunnelling products, speciality polymer flooring, grouts and levelling compounds, parking deck coatings, and decorative concrete.
The complete product offering also allows architects and developers to benefit from a single source for construction chemicals.
The Euclid Group will operate as part of the RPM Performance Coatings Group, a subsidiary of RPM International Inc.
