RPM Company Spotlight: Grupo PV

Based in Barcelona, Spain, Grupo PV is a leading manufacturer of fire-stopping and insulation solutions for passive fire protection, soundproofing, and cryogenic and heat insulation applications. It operates as part of RPM’s Performance Coatings Group.

Founded in 1976, Grupo PV has grown to become the largest group of companies in Spain focused on the insulation and passive fire protection of building structures. Under its Perlita y Vermiculita, Ignifugaciones Argos and Perlindustria businesses, Grupo PV manufactures, sells and installs passive fire protection systems and expanded minerals for cryogenic insulation.

“Since joining the RPM family in 2011, Grupo PV has collaborated with RPM companies such as Carboline Mexico and Stoncor Benelux on a variety of landmark structures around the world,” said Javier Entrena, export manager of Grupo PV. “These projects range from Azerbaijan’s Crescent Hotel Baku near the Caspian Sea shoreline and Tbilisi’s Parliament of Georgia, to Europe’s largest integrated resort City of Dreams Mediterranean in Cyprus.”

The company’s product line includes fire-retardant mortars, intumescent coatings, firestop barriers and panels, and installation passage systems. In addition to its Barcelona headquarters, Grupo PV has two offices in Madrid and Bilbao and a manufacturing facility in Sevilla.
