Euclid Group has announced its formation by joining several RPM International Inc. subsidiaries in business together, with the predominant operating companies being Euclid Chemical, Eucomex, Toxement, Cave, Viapol, Flowcrete, RPM Belgium and Vandex.
A manufacturer of specialty chemicals and smart building solutions, Euclid Group is ideally positioned to supply the global construction, structural and civil engineering industries with innovative, high quality and future-proof materials.

The complementary technologies and geographies of the businesses ensure that clients, wherever they are located, have access to its comprehensive product offering.”
“Combining so many leading brands into Euclid Group has created a unique business that encapsulates not only an unrivalled collection of high performance products, but also more than a century of industry knowledge and a vast wealth of experience across the globe. ”
Each of the operating businesses will sit equally under Euclid Group umbrella but will now also be able to manufacture and supply additional construction chemical solutions according to local demand and production capabilities.
In total, Euclid Group will consist of 34 manufacturing facilities in 14 countries, a sales presence in 55 countries and more than 2,100 members of staff. The enhanced capabilities of this combined global infrastructure positions Euclid Group as one of the world’s foremost construction chemicals companies.
This structure will enable brands to generate mutual growth by leveraging existing market position, selling channels and brand recognition to promote new brands and new products in new places.
The global coverage of systems combined with localised expertise provides clients with an understanding of international best practice, the ability to ensure consistency that spans continents alongside a consideration for regional details.
The combined portfolio of the new Group includes: concrete admixtures; chemical fibres; construction products; mining & tunnelling products; specialty polymer flooring; grouts & levelling compounds; parking deck coatings; and decorative concrete.
Euclid Group’s complete product offering means that architects and developers will benefit from a single source for construction chemical components. Whether it is the structural fibres in the concrete, the antimicrobial floor underfoot, the waterproof deck or concrete enhancing admixtures - Euclid Group will be able to supply the most critical elements of any commercial or industrial development.
Within the rapidly growing global construction chemicals market, which is set to be worth more than USD 40 billion by 2020, Euclid Group represents a progressive, dynamic solution provider tailored to take on the industry’s future challenges. This forward-looking perspective is exemplified by Euclid Group’s commitment to providing the construction industry with sustainable solutions designed to reduce the sector’s environmental impact.
