Balance and Diversification
The key to RPM’s success is its commitment to maintaining a balanced approach across the various aspects of the company.

Through its subsidiaries, RPM is well-diversified across both the industrial and consumer markets, with 68 percent of sales attributable to industries worldwide and 32 percent to consumers, primarily in North America. Industrial products offered by RPM affiliates include flooring coatings, roofing systems, sealants, corrosion control coatings, specialty chemicals, and recreational marine coatings, while consumer products such as paints, coatings, sealants, and adhesives are made available to professionals, DIY enthusiasts, and hobbyists for home maintenance, automotive repair, and other household tasks.
As RPM and TCI continue to solidify their domestic market share, they are also actively investing in expanding their worldwide presence by leveraging opportunities for explosive international growth. These strategic investments have rapidly increased their involvement in established European markets, as well as emerging economies like India, China, and Latin America. As a result of their commitment to international expansion, RPM products are now sold in approximately 150 countries and territories.
