PPG Industries recently announced it has expanded its aerospace business operations in Japan with the relocation of its application support center to a site in Miyoshi. The facility, which includes a 1,994-sq-m manufacturing facility and office, as well as an 890-sq-m stand-alone on-site warehouse, reportedly supports increased production capacity, adds warehouse space, and affords new service capabilities.

The larger site, near Nagoya, can enable PPG Aerospace to expand its capabilities in the region as Japan’s role as a major aerospace center continues to grow, according to Paul Bowman, PPG Aerospace general manager, Asia Pacific. PPG established operations at its former application support center in Handa City in 2005 after serving the Japanese aerospace market from a facility in Tokyo for sealants and coatings distribution.
