Manufacturing powder and liquid coatings

IVC is a privately owned company founded in 1870 as the Indianapolis Varnish Company. The company, based in Brazil, Indiana, focuses on the development, manufacture and sale of powder and liquid coatings for the general industrial segment. Its industry-leading coatings are used on a wide variety of products such as metal office furniture, material handling and storage products, automotive parts, motorcycles, industrial containers, small appliances and electronics such as printers, servers and audio-visual equipment. IVC employs more than 300 people and operates five plants in the U.S. (two in Brazil, Indiana, and one each in Grand Haven, Michigan; Atlanta, Georgia; and Casa Grande, Arizona), one plant in Guangdong, China, and a small development lab in Manchester, England. The company also has operations in Malaysia through a joint venture.

Acquisition enhances positions in the U.S. and China

"Acquiring IVC, which has a large, global distribution footprint, will strengthen our ability to serve a variety of end-use markets and enhance PPG’s supply positions in the U.S. and China,” said Shelley Bausch, PPG vice president, global industrial coatings. "The addition of IVC's high-quality products and industry expertise will further enhance PPG's ability to deliver a robust portfolio of industry-leading industrial coatings solutions."
