PPG Industries, a Pittsburg-based manufacturer of paints, coatings, and specialty materials, announced a USD 15 million investment in a new 38,750 square foot (3,600 square meter) application support center (ASC) at the Seletar Aerospace Park near the Seletar Airport in Singapore. This marks the company’s largest investment to date in South East Asia.
PPG serves customers in construction, consumer products, industrial and transportation markets and aftermarkets. Its aerospace business offers coatings, sealants, transparencies, packaging and application systems, and transparent armor, as well as chemical management and other services.
This new facility in Singapore is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2020 and will help the company meet increased demand for aerospace sealants and coatings, chemical management services and the packaging of third-party products.
