Legend Brands Aids Fellow RPM Companies with Supply of Disinfectant

In the midst of the global COVID-19 health crisis, RPM facilities faced a shortage of disinfectant that was needed in order to continue business operations while preventing occupational exposure. Concerned about RPM’s ability to continue to service customers and protect the health and safety of associates, VP of Operations Gordy Hyde and VP of Environmental, Health and Safety Ken Armstrong reached out to Bill Bruders, Legend Brands CEO, for support.

The team at Legend Brands quickly came to the aid of its fellow RPM companies, working diligently to provide their Mediclean® Germicidal Cleaner Concentrate disinfectant solution, which has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to SARS-CoV-2 (as the surrogate for COVID-19), to share with RPM facilities throughout the U.S.

Bill Bruders and his team at Legend Brands didn’t hesitate to contribute to the greater good of RPM. By sharing its supply of disinfectants, Legend Brands equipped RPM’s manufacturing plants and distribution sites with the materials they needed to continue their business operations while keeping their associates safe and healthy.
