PPG has grown its manufacturing capabilities by developing its new state-of-the-art, $67 million AUD paint and coatings manufacturing facility.
Located in the Lipetsk region of Russia the new facility is capable of producing around 25 million litres of coatings per year at full capacity.
Along with manufacturing and distributing facilities to cater to coating for automotive, industrial, packaging and protective and marine applications, the facility also includes technical laboratories and administrative offices.
PPG senior VP global architectural coatings and president PPG EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Jean-Marie Greindl said the facility was about making a strong commitment to serving regional and local customers.
“Having local manufacturing, distribution and technical operations will help PPG meet growing local demand for its innovative paint and coatings products.”
