PPG Industries recently held a ceremony to mark the opening of its new automotive OEM coatings development and application center in Tianjin, China. This facility is reportedly the first of its kind locally and will focus on the development of automotive coatings in China.

PPG celebrated the opening of PPG Coatings (Tianjin) Co. Ltd.’s new waterborne coatings manufacturing facility. The Tianjin plant is PPG’s largest coatings manufacturing facility globally, and the expansion significantly increases the plant’s production capacity for waterborne coatings.

“We are pleased to celebrate the completion of this critical expansion project in China,” said Cynthia Niekamp, senior vice president for Automotive OEM Coatings. “China’s automotive manufacturing industry is experiencing dramatic growth, and in light of new environmental protection regulations, the increased demand for eco-friendly waterborne automotive coatings continues to drive the expansion of PPG’s business here.”
