PPG opens automotive refinish training center in Argentina
The company expects to train more than 300 refinish technicians at the state-of-the-art facility annually, with 100 professionals receiving training through the end of 2017.
Expanded resources in Latin America
PPG experts will train technicians from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay on all of PPG’s automotive refinish product lines and colour modules, as well as application techniques. The new facility expands PPG’s training resources in southern Latin America, adding to the automotive refinish training center it currently operates in Sumaré, Brazil.
Developing the workforce
“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.”
Raising the level of the region’s refinish market
The new center will help further establish PPG’s stringent quality standards in the region and facilitate deployment of the three pillars that guide the company’s automotive refinish business globally: innovative technology pipeline, increased technical know-how and excellent brand experience. “The inauguration of the training center symbolises PPG’s belief in the potential of Latin America as a whole,” said Andres Nitti, PPG business development supervisor, automotive refinish, Argentina. “With this strategic investment, we are continuing our objective of raising the level of the region’s refinish market even further.”
