Three facilities operated by PPG Industries’ aerospace business have been recognized by Northrop Grumman Corp.’s Aerospace Systems sector with 2013 Platinum Source Preferred supplier awards: the Huntsville, Ala. transparencies facility; Irvine, Calif., coatings manufacturing plant; and Kennesaw, Ga., application support center (ASC).

This marks the eighth year PPG’s ASC-Atlanta in Kennesaw has received the Platinum Source Preferred supplier award. It supplies Northrop Grumman with PPG defense coatings and sealant products to support modifications, development, and production for naval and air force weapons systems. Recognized for the second time, PPG’s Huntsville facility designs and manufactures advanced transparency systems. A first-year honoree, the PPG Irvine facility supplies water-reducible primers and urethane, epoxy, and advanced-performance topcoats.

“PPG Aerospace and the employees at Huntsville, Kennesaw, and Irvine are highly focused on our customers and committed both to the service and quality of our products,” said David Morris, PPG Aerospace general manager and vice president for the Americas. “Earning these awards shows that we are acting on that commitment. It gives our employees very well-deserved recognition for their efforts and something they can be proud of as members of our team.”
