PPG Industries has announced plans to invest more than USD 27 million in its San Juan del Rio, Queretaro, Mexico, coatings manufacturing facility. The expansion project will add four new buildings to the current complex, representing approximately 100,000 square feet of additional production and laboratory space. The company officially initiated the expansion with a groundbreaking event and anticipates completion in 2015. The expanded facility is expected to employ more than 115 people, a 30 % increase over its current workforce.

The additional capacity will enable PPG to meet increasing demand for its coatings by automotive OEM, protective and marine, packaging and industrial customers in Mexico. "This growth project is another important step for PPG’s future in Mexico. It will enhance PPG’s capability to serve the country’s fast-growing automotive manufacturing market with the latest waterborne and compact process technologies that today’s global automotive OEMs are demanding,” said Adriana Macouzet, PPG general manager, Latin America North. "The expansion enables us to meet the additional demand stemming from rapid growth in recent years by our Mexico-based customers and provide PPG coatings to other local end-use markets.”
