WJ Dennis & Company

History - Unprecedented Growth

WJ Dennis was established in Chicago in 1900 as a manufacturer of weatherstripping. WJ Dennis has since added flooring, squeegee and insulation products to its ever growing weatherstrip line.  WJ Dennis sells its products through two-step distribution, mass merchants and hardware coops. Offices are maintained in Elgin, Illinois.

In 1996 WJ Dennis was purchased by RCR International in Montreal, Canada. RCR International is and continues to be one of North America's fastest growing consumer based product manufacturers of more than 3000 products including weatherstripping, insulation components, floor protection products and squeegees.

RCR International's business philosophy is based on the principle of 'Full Circle' manufacturing. This consists in totally integrated service including manufacturing processes and programs. We believe that only through total integration can companies achieve maximum impact for every dollar spent - today and into the future. We have no global limitations on the customers we serve, having in place an effective and efficient distribution network with facilities in key regions: Montreal, Toronto and Chicago.

This allows RCR International to distribute its vast array of products all over the world, providing exceptional fill rates to our customers. These positive indicators support a scenario of continued unprecedented growth of RCR International Inc.. The future appears outstanding and we look forward to strong results and continued success for our customers and our associates.
