Rust-Oleum is America's leading manufacturer of protective coatings and paints for residential, commercial and industrial applications. The company's founder, Captain Robert Fergusson, noticed that spilled fish oil stopped corrosion on boat decks. He made New Orleans his home base and pursued his ideas, establishing the business in 1921. Fergusson's original formulas became the base for the full line of Rust-Oleum products that enjoy a global market today.
Rust-Oleum remained a family owned business until 1994 when it became a part of RPM International. Company headquarters are located north of Chicago in Vernon Hills, Illinois, with manufacturing operations throughout the United States and Europe. The product line remains a mainstay in homes and has expanded with commercial and industrial uses that range from surface protection to custom colors and specialty finishes. Last year, Rust-Oleum's revenues exceeded $700 million.
Rust-Oleum takes pride in fostering a working environment that is challenging and rewarding. The company remains committed to strong family values with unique policies that include adoption benefits, scholarships for associate's children and community service awards. More than 1000 employees enjoy a full range of medical, vision and dental insurance as well as disability coverage and life insurance. The company also matches employee 401K plans and contributes to pension packages.
