PPG Opens Automotive Refinish Training Center in Argentina


PPG has opened a 300-square-meter training center for automotive refinish professionals in Pillar, Argentina. The company expects to train more than 300 refinish technicians annually, with 100 professionals receiving training through the end of 2017.

PPG will train technicians from Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay on all of PPG’s automotive refinish product lines and color modules, as well as application techniques, the company stated. The facility expands PPG’s training resources in southern Latin America, adding to the automotive refinish training center it currently operates in Sumaré, Brazil.

“The new training center strengthens PPG’s commitment to developing the workforce and automotive refinish industry of southern Latin America,” said Fabrício Vieira, PPG commercial and marketing director, automotive refinish, southern Latin America region. “This facility ensures PPG experts and refinish technicians have access to the most advanced tools and training, which ultimately ensure customer satisfaction.”
