April 5, 2006

DAP, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of RPM International, has acquired Custom Building Products’ line of ready-to-use pre-mix patch and repair products.
Custom is based in Seal Beach, CA and has a 40-year history as a producer of tile and stone installation products. Custom’s major patch and repair brands acquired by DAP include Patch-N-Paint, Lightweight Spackling, All Purpose Spackling Paste and Flexall Flexible All Purpose Filler.
“The purchase of Custom Building Products’ Patch & Repair Products solidifies our leadership position in this category and furthers DAP’s long-term vision to expand its market presence through both internal growth initiatives and select, strategic acquisitions,” said John McLaughlin, president and CEO of DAP. “We have long admired the breadth of their line and are excited about adding these products to the DAP family of brands.”
