RPM Europe SA will principally be looking to increase RPM's presence in Europe by seeking and working with local businesses and manufacturing companies interested in joining the RPM family.

This office will further look to identify and implement administrative efficiencies, such as through treasury and cash management.

RPM Europe SA will operate under the direction of Ulf S. Eriksson, president, and Anthony Biela, Vice President of Administration.
