RPM xConstruction, a premier construction services firm, announced Sept. 9 that will establish its new corporate headquarters at McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch.

“We had been looking for a site to build our new corporate headquarters for some time,” said Barry Rich, manager of RPM, in a news release. “After looking at all that the McKinney Corporate Center has to offer, we chose this site as our future. With the tremendous growth of RPM and our affiliated companies over the last 10 years, we feel McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch is a perfect fit for us.”

RPM will relocate from its current site in Plano to build a three-story, 90,000-square-foot office building on Meyer Way in McKinney for its corporate staff and approximately 750 employees. The firm had also purchased land in Frisco for a potential headquarters before choosing McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch.

"RPM is a leader in their industry and the decision to locate the company's new HQ in McKinney is one we highly value,” McKinney Mayor George Fuller said in the news release. “Corporate partnerships in our community are vital for balanced growth. RPM will be an outstanding addition to the McKinney Corporate Center Craig Ranch and the city of McKinney as a whole. We look forward to continued growth together.”

Some features RPM credits in helping with the decision for the location is the accessibility from the Sam Rayburn Tollway, nearby residential areas that could allow employees to walk to work, multiple restaurant and retail options, and existing and future amenities under construction, per the news release.

“The MEDC is pleased to welcome RPM’s leadership team to McKinney,” McKinney Economic Development Corp. Chair Ken Siapora said in a news release. “Our mutual investment in their headquarters is an exciting complement to McKinney's rapidly growing SH 121 corridor. We look forward to RPM’s contributions to our economy and community.”

Construction on the project is expected to begin in early 2021 and is slated for completion in early 2022. 214-239-4722.
