While businesses that are considered non-essential are being shut down to stem the tide of COVID-19, in most cases, places that use and sell RPM products are considered essential and remain open, such as construction projects, industrial suppliers, DIY home centers and hardware stores. Because RPM products are a vital part of the supply chain to build, repair and maintain structures, RPM companies around the world (with a few exceptions) have been able to continue to operate their plants and distribution centers.

Our ability to continue to operate is highly dependent on our ability to keep our associates healthy. Please continue to follow good, commonsense hygiene practices and maintain social distancing.

Regulations are changing rapidly, so please have your company contact Ed Moore ( or Tracy Crandall ( with the RPM legal team to help determine what is possible to keep your facilities operating.

Note that the RPM corporate headquarters associates are now working from home, as mandated by the State of Ohio’s shelter-in-place order. Corporate personnel can be reached via email or their mobile phones. Their direct office lines should forward their calls to their mobile numbers as well.
