Our Mission

We create innovative solutions to repair and restore the car that moves you.

About Us

Evercoat, part of Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW) Global Body Repair Division, 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. Founded in 1912, ITW (NYSE: ITW) is a global industrial company, comprised of seven industry-leading segments that are built around a differentiated and proprietary business model.  ITW’s approximately 45,000 dedicated colleagues around the world thrive in the company’s decentralized, entrepreneurial culture. In 2021, ITW achieved revenue of $14.5 billion, with roughly half coming from outside North America.

Our Vision

To be the global leader in automotive body repair solutions that deliver quality and trust in every repair.

Evercoat has been trusted by body repair professionals for nearly 70 years and our commitment to quality and ease of application has established Evercoat as the number one preferred filler brand in North America and other global markets.   Evercoat remains an innovation leader in the industry, holding over 35 U.S. and foreign patents, and was first to market with many patented technologies including:  Rage®, the first stain-free body filler, and Rage Ultra™, the first filler using environmentally friendly, ECORESIN™.  More recently, Evercoat launched Rage® OPTEX® color-change filler and putty, and its new Light Speed™ system with LED curing technology.

In addition to its broad and high-quality range of fillers and putties, Evercoat also offers high build polyester primers and fiberglass resins, along with other value-added ancillary products to help complete every repair. Evercoat’s service and training adds value to its customers by providing direct to paint and time-savings body repair SOP’s, helping support efficiency and highest shop performance levels.

By 2020 ITW Global Body Repair partnered with ITW Global Brands and launched its exclusive automotive retail brand Evercoat Body Shop®.  Since then, Evercoat has also launched its brand for specialty/hardware retailers:   Evercoat Garage Pro Series™.

Evercoat’s filler, putty and primers are made in the U.S.A. in Blue Ash, Ohio, and where we service global sales and distribution.
