with questions.Operating Principles:RPM operates under four basic principles: Safety, Quality, Production, and Profit. There is one driving force behind each one of them: A strong desire to solve our customers’ wear problems and save our customers dollars.
Safety is very important at RPM. Rob Mudge, our President and founder states, "Safety is our number one priority. There is no job we have ever done nor will we ever do that is worth someone getting hurt over. Quite frankly, as far as we are concerned, that job does not exist." Extraordinary measures have been taken to ensure that our facilities offer the safest possible work environment.
- Quality.“The best is barely good enough” is a motto of Jim Mudge, co-founder and father of Rob Mudge. In 1982, this motto was adopted by the newly formed company, RPM & Associates. Since then, its meaning has been embraced by all employees and our customers experience it in our products every day.
RPM’s management and engineering teams are constantly reviewing and improving production processes to make sure employees have the best possible tools, equipment, education, and work environment to operate efficiently and competitively.
When the first three principles of Safety, Quality, and Production are embraced, profit follows. RPM is able to provide competitive wages and benefits to its employees.
