Evercoat began as Fibre-Glass Evercoat in 1953, when our first formulations were developed in Cincinnati and sold throughout the US, primarily to the marine market. Shortly after 1953, we recognized the need for good quality primers and fillers for the automotive aftermarket, and began marketing Evercoat products designed for use on automotive body repair.
In 1995 ITW acquired Evercoat. ITW (Illinois Tool Works) is a Fortune 200 Company listed on the NYSE. ITW is a diversified industrial manufacturer of value-added consumables and specialty equipment with related service business. With over 300 companies worldwide, and more than 5,000 employees, ITW companies have a significant presence in developed as well as emerging markets.
Over the years, Evercoat has invested heavily in technology, allowing us to be first to market with many leading products. Rage ® was the first stain-free body filler, Quantum 1® was the first 10:1 filler technology and Rage Ultra™ is the first filler using Eco Resin™, an environmentally friendly resin which also provides superior sanding capabilities. Now we lead the industry in the use of “green” technology. Additionally we have been first to market with high build polyester primers, polyester glazing putty, light weight pourable glazing putty, unique packaging, direct to paint and time-saving body repair SOPs. Many of our unique formulas are patented.
We have a wide range of additional products which have been developed for the domestic and global body repair industry, including adhesives, spray filler, plastic repair and ancillary products.
Because of our commitment to quality, our unique formulations and our time-saving SOPs, Evercoat is the number one preferred putty and filler brand in North America. We hold a leading market position in many developed and emerging markets.
Resins and other critical components are sourced in the U.S. Our manufacturing is based in Cincinnati, OH, with sales and marketing offices in Ohio, Brazil, UK, Spain and China. We have distribution centers in Ohio, California, Brazil, UK, Spain and China.
