Adapting to Achieve Record Results

Legend Brands provides innovative equipment and chemical solutions for professional cleaners, facility managers and for water, fire, smoke and mold damage restoration. In FY22, as Legend Brands was facing chip shortages for dehumidifying and HEPA filtration equipment, Legend Brands worked internally and with vendors to re-engineer its products to utilize a more readily available chip. These proactive changes allowed Legend Brands to quickly fulfill backordered inventory and reach record-level results in the fourth quarter.

“Our Specialty Products Group made great strides in developing the tools and capabilities to drive commercial excellence. These efforts are continuing into FY23 through improved cost accounting, better understanding of market pricing dynamics and more effective use of our enterprise resource planning system. In February, our Wood Finishes Group announced the development of a new $25 million Research, Development & Innovation Center of Excellence in Greensboro, N.C. The 60,000-square-foot facility will serve to advance new ideas and innovation across RPM.”
