RESIN SURFACES SPEAK OF GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES AFTER JOINING SHERWIN-WILLIAMS
Ivy Wroe, Sales Director of Resin Surfaces (RSL), has today spoken for the first time about the impact of becoming part of Sherwin-Williams.
RSL, which celebrates 35 years in business this year, joined the world-leading coatings giant in May last year.
The company will now lead the Sherwin-Williams commercial flooring business in the EMEAI (Europe, Middle East, Africa and India), working alongside a sister business in the US.
The aim is to build a significant global presence in the sector.
Next month (July 2017) RSL will relocate its administrative and manufacturing headquarters from Hazel Grove to Sherwin-Williams’ Bolton operation as the final stage of a merging of people and skills.
Ivy, who has joined the board of Sherwin-Williams EMEAI, commented: “The last 12 months has been an extraordinary journey for us all. “Becoming part of Sherwin-Williams is testament to everyone’s hard work in helping us build a business over three decades which has led the way in resin wall and flooring solutions both in the UK and internationally.
“We now have the opportunity to take our product knowledge and technical expertise to a worldwide audience and lead Sherwin-Williams’ offer, certainly in the EMEAI region, but also wider, in close collaboration with our US counterparts.”
Ian Walker, General Manager for Sherwin-Williams EMEAI, said the deal with RSL reflected its dominance in the resin wall and flooring sector. “We wanted a partner with an established reputation for technical knowhow and new product development to help us build a global presence in what is a new sector for us.”
