RPM International Inc. announced that the company has officially opened the doors to its new Innovation Center of Excellence in Greensboro, North Carolina. The first shared research and development center for RPM companies, the 60,000-square-foot facility is designed to foster partnership and harness collective expertise among RPM companies to accelerate innovation. RPM reports that the facility represents a continuation of the increased collaboration that has been developed through MAP 2025 initiatives.
The Innovation Center of Excellence is strategically located near institutions that produce top talent. Features include liquid and powder application labs, resin and analytical labs, a sample production area, and a formulation lab, among other resources. It will also serve as a destination for onsite customer training and application trials.
“RPM companies have long been known as innovation leaders in the markets they serve. The Innovation Center of Excellence builds upon this legacy by allowing these companies to leverage their collective strengths to deliver solutions more quickly and efficiently than they could do on their own,” said Frank C. Sullivan, RPM chairman and CEO.
