PPG to Invest $1.7 Million in Coatings Manufacturing Facility

PPG has announced plans to invest $1.7 million in a dispense cell at its Kunshan, China, coatings manufacturing facility. The cell, expected to be fully operational in January 2019, will reportedly increase production flexibility and productivity at the site, while also delivering significant cost savings, shortened delivery cycles, and reduced emissions.

“Our Kunshan facility is tasked with locally supplying our protective and marine coatings customers in China. This investment will deliver rapid response supply tailored to our protective customers’ needs in China,” said Mike Horton, vice president, protective and marine coatings, Asia Pacific.
