PPG Industries in Argentina recently announced the consolidation of operations at its coatings manufacturing complex in Pilar. In addition to being PPG’s manufacturing hub in Argentina, the 4,200-sq-ft facility now serves as the company’s headquarters in the country. More than 50 business office, information technology, human resources and other support team members have moved to remodeled office space at the Pilar site from a rented building in St. Martin, about 25 miles away.

“We are delighted to reaffirm our commitment to Argentina,” said Carlos Santa Cruz, PPG general manager for South America. “We appreciate the loyalty of our Argentina customers and are excited about this opportunity to strengthen our mutual growth. Consolidating at our Pilar complex makes excellent business sense. It will enable us to capitalize on numerous synergies and improve our customer service.”

The Pilar manufacturing plant produces automotive refinish and industrial coatings products.
