PPG Begins Producing Protective and Marine Coatings at Poland Plant

June 11, 2013

PPG Industries recently announced it has started manufacturing protective and marine coatings (PMC) at its facility in Ostrów Wielkopolski, Poland. The plant, which previously produced architectural coatings and was part of PPG’s January 2012 acquisition of Dyrup A/S, now produces PMC products for the construction, petrochemical, shipbuilding and energy industries.

“The Ostrów manufacturing plant is a key part of our strategy to grow and expand in this region,” said Tim Knavish, PPG vice president for Protective and Marine Coatings. “It has been transformed into one of PPG’s most modern and efficient manufacturing facilities, and the strategic investment will strengthen our position in fast-growing markets throughout Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Turkey.”
