RPM ACQUIRES GERMAN
SEALANT MAKER ILLBRUCK
RPM’s Tremco unit has acquired Illbruck Sealant Systems, a high-performance sealant and installation systems maker based in Leverkusen, Germany. The purchase gives Tremco a “global footprint in its core waterproofing and sealant system technologies,” according to company officials.
With annual sales of approximately €160 million, Illbruck is a leading Pan- European manufacturer of installation systems for mounting, fixing, assembling and sealing pre-fabricated construction elements and window and door applications. Illbruck’s systems are highly specified throughout Europe and are sold primarily to professional window and door applicators and to a lesser extent, directly to DIY retailers.
Illbruck’s product roster includes joint sealing tapes, flashing tapes, cartridge sealants and adhesives, strips, foils and accessories.
“Illbruck has a strong strategic and cultural fit with RPM and its Tremco Sealants Division,” said RPM’s CEO Frank C. Sullivan. Sullivan said Illbruck’s brand “will provide increased momentum in Europe’s primary markets for additional Tremco and RPM products.”
Illbruck, which was founded in 1952 by Willi and Christine Illbruck, is currently owned by Sabina and Michael Illbruck, the daughter and son of the founders.
“It is RPM’s objective to continue to build upon the proud legacy of the Illbruck family for years to come,” said Sullivan.
Illbruck’s management team, headed by Reiner Eisenhut, will continue to operate the company in coordination with Tremco’s Sealant Group, which is managed by Randy Korach
