RM Lucas: Company Gets New Headquarters, R&D, and Manufacturing Facility

Aug. 25, 2015 — RM Lucas, a 103-year-old manufacturer of premium coatings, sealants and adhesives for the professional contractor, announced the acquisition of the new Lucas Headquarters and manufacturing plant.

The new facility, at 12400 S. Laramie Ave. in Alsip, Ill., has frontage on Interstate 294 that circles Chicago and provides easy access for shipping and receiving to all points in North America.

The 92,000-square-foot facility is composed of 12,000 square feet of offices, 5,000 square feet of research and development space, and 75,000 square feet of warehouse and manufacturing.

New state-of-the art mixing, filling, and laboratory-testing equipment will be installed in the new facility.

Production is scheduled to start up in late 2015. This facility will replace a smaller sealants plant opened in 2013. The Chicago Plant will continue operations with expanded capacity for asphalt products.

It is the company's the third physical expansion of production facilities in the last six years.
