Rust-Oleum Donates Coatings for Town’s Bridges

Monday, October 4, 2010

Comment | More

Rust-Oleum Corp. has donated more than 185 gallons of protective coatings to recoat three aging bridge overpasses in the Wisconsin community where many of its employees live.

The overpasses, in Kenosha, WI, had not been painted in more than 20 years and were in need of resurfacing, said Daniel Whitefoot, civil engineer for the city of Kenosha, Department of Public Works.

Headquartered in Vernon Hills, IL, Rust-Oleum has occupied a 600,000-square-foot distribution center on 50th Street since December 2008 and has 80 full-time employees at its Kenosha location, about 38 miles north of the headquarters.

‘Dedicated to Giving Back’

“Rust-Oleum is dedicated to giving back to our communities and helping in any way we can to improve the quality of life,” said Jeff Kistler, vice president of marketing for Rust-Oleum Industrial Brands. “The fact that so many Rust-Oleum employees call Kenosha their home made the decision to donate an easy one.

“It’s exciting when those who play a part in getting our products into the market can see first-hand the end results of what they do every day.”

The project used more than 185 gallons of Rust-Oleum Industrial Choice 5200 System DTM Acrylic Enamel in Safety Blue and Dunes Tan to coat the bridges’ fascia fronts and Rust-Oleum Mathys Pegarust for the columns and support girders.

“We are very thankful for the generous donation,” said Whitefoot.  “We are confident that the coatings donated for the Kenosha project will both beautify and protect our bridges for years to come.”

Rust-Oleum manufactures protective paints and coatings for the residential and industrial markets through its Industrial Brands division.
