and service team.
Major and minor players in the fishing industry, along with municipalities and many local electrical and mechanical contracting companies, have come to depend on the top-notch products and services at RPM.
The company even offers a 24hour emergency service, since malfunctions in a seafood processing plant or on board a fishing vessel can be very costly in terms of production and lost revenues.
And RPM carries a substantial inventory of motors and pumps to ensure there are no delays in getting the job done.
There’s also no job too large or too small for the five-member team RPM.
It’s the reason why leading companies such as Quinlan Brothers, Ocean Choice International, Barry Group and Clearwater Fine Foods have long placed their trust in the people at RPM.
Seafood processing plants have become increasingly automated, and when that equipment breaks down, companies can’t afford to settle for anything less than expert, reliable and timely service.
“That’s why we’ve managed to stay in business,” said Bishop. “We don’t take anything for granted, and we never will.”
But as it did two decades ago, changes are afoot in the fishing industry. Several seafood processing plants around the province have closed, and more are likely. Some of those plants were major customers for RPM.
Bishop sees this as both a concern and an opportunity. He’s already eying new markets for his business.
“The fishery has treated us well. Now the challenge is to diversify,” said Bishop. “We are already looking for prospective new customers, especially in the St. John’s area, where we see great potential.”
Bishop added that the support of many of his suppliers have played a major role in the success of RPM, and he sees that continuing well into the future.
He’s also grateful for the efforts of his employees.
“The difference in RPM and some other retailers is we have a lot of experience in trouble-shooting. Others may have the product on the shelf, but don’t provide the service in the event something later goes wrong.
“Our staff is knowledgeable and well-versed. And I guess that’s where we stand out.”
