PPG Industries recently announced that Caterpillar Inc. has selected its industrial coatings business as the sole heavy-duty equipment coatings supplier for a new motor grader assembly plant in North Little Rock, AR. In addition to serving as a single-source coatings supplier, PPG will provide on-site technical and product approval support, as well as in-plant training of paint-line operators through its Knowledge College service in coating application technologies.

John Valasco, PPG global account manager, said he believes this project will reward PPG’s renewed commitment to heavy-duty equipment coatings. “We’re not there just to sell a gallon of paint or a box of powder,” he said. “We’re working with customers such as Caterpillar to demonstrate our capabilities as a total finishing solutions provider.”
