PPG Industries recently announced that its Protective and Marine Coatings (PMC) business has manufactured more than 100,000 gal of coatings in a new small batch process that began operation at its Little Rock, Ark., facility in January. PPG reportedly invested in the new batch process to satisfy customers’ needs for small quantities and made-to-order products, such as military-specified coatings, PSX® polysiloxanes, and MEGASEALTM flooring coatings.

“Through customer interviews and commercial feedback, we learned that our customers needed faster turnaround on small and custom batch orders from their coatings supplier,” said Diane Kappas, vice president, Americas, PMC. “For this reason, it made sense to invest in this new small batch processing operation in Little Rock.”
