PPG Industries recently announced it has begun operation of a new packaging unit installed at its Gonfreville, France, coatings plant and aerospace application support center. With the new equipment, PPG is reportedly able to offer customers in aerospace, automotive, rail, electronics and general industrial markets in southern Europe the benefits of proprietary SEMCO® packaging and application systems.

According to Dirk Thelen, business manager, ASC-South Europe, the new equipment enables PPG to supply its coatings and sealants as well as adhesives and other third-party chemicals in value-added, “customer-friendly” packaging.

“PPG is capitalizing on our expertise to offer customers in South Europe value-added packaging solutions from a local source,” Thelen said. “With SEMCO packaging and application systems, we are able to deliver products for convenient storage, mixing and use to afford higher quality and lower system costs. PPG has a team of experts to work with customers and identify the best packaging for a specific application.”

As part of the Gonfreville operations, the repackaging unit meets quality qualifications such as ISO 9001 and EN 9100 standards, according to Thelen. “The repackaging unit has been approved by several aerospace customers. The benefits of integration into the Gonfreville site include conformance to chemical control and product stewardship requirements and European labeling.”

In addition to aerospace coatings manufactured on site, coatings products from PPG’s recently acquired Deft Incorporated portfolio have been integrated into the repackaging activity at Gonfreville for European customers.
