PPG Industries recently announced it has completed its acquisition of certain assets of Deft Inc., a privately owned specialty coatings company based in Irvine, Calif. The acquisition reportedly enhances the coatings capabilities of PPG’s Aerospace business.

“With the acquisition of Deft, we are now able to offer an even broader portfolio of innovative coatings that benefit our customers and reduce the impact on the environment,” said Barry Gillespie, vice president, Aerospace for PPG. “Deft’s waterborne and chrome-free technologies complement PPG’s existing coatings capabilities, particularly in the aerospace industry, and support PPG’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.”
