The Hamburg, Germany, application support center operated by PPG Industries’ Aerospace business has received the Excellent Supplier Award 2010 in gold from Austrian aviation supplier FACC AG. The award was given for “consistent outstanding performance” in providing coatings, sealants, aircraft maintenance chemicals, and packaging and application systems.

FACC presents the annual award in gold, silver and bronze to recognize three suppliers for exceptional commitment and exemplary performance in continually providing high-quality products and reliable adherence to delivery requirements. Other factors considered include customer service; flexibility; cooperation; and willingness to develop, accept and implement cost-saving and process-optimizing measures.

“This is a tremendous honor for PPG Aerospace and the PPG ASC-Hamburg team, especially given that FACC is a key customer and a leading producer and designer of composite parts for aviation applications,” said Roald Johannsen, PPG Aerospace general manager for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India. “With our unique global network of application support centers and extensive product offerings, PPG has the resources to meet FACC’s critical needs as a world-class aviation supplier.”
