PPG marks completion of coatings facility in Russia
The site will provide about 200 total positions and produce about 25 million liters of coatings at full capacity.
Expanded presence in EMEA
In addition to facilities for manufacturing and distributing coatings for automotive, industrial, packaging, and protective and marine applications, the facility includes administrative offices and technical laboratories. “PPG’s investment in this facility further demonstrates our commitment to expand our presence in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region,” said Jean-Marie Greindl, PPG senior vice president, global architectural coatings, and president, PPG EMEA.
Supportive member of the community
Since announcing plans for the new facility in 2013, PPG has established itself as a supportive member of the Lipetsk community through various activities. Last year, PPG employees volunteered at the Griazy orphanage in Lipetsk to help repair and update the building’s gymnasium, replacing materials on floors and walls with safer products donated by PPG and its local distributor. PPG also operates an adhesives and sealants plant in Kolomna, Russia, and the company donated to a local school there to help it better serve young people in the community.
