PPG expands presence in china

Published June 13, 2006
Looking to expand its presence in the Chinese architectural coatings market, PPG Industries has agreed to acquire certain assets of Shanghai Sunpool Building Material Co., Ltd., and its associated companies, including Shanghai IDI International Co., Ltd., and a group of Shanghai-based businesses that manufacture and distribute coatings and building materials.
Often referred to as Sunpool in China, IDI is the sole distributor of Master’s Mark architectural paints by PPG, a premium brand available in major home centers in urban areas throughout the country.
“This acquisition will significantly enhance our distribution and manufacturing capabilities in China for both architectural and high-performance coatings,” said J. Rich Alexander, PPG senior vice president for coatings. “In addition, we are acquiring excellent brands that IDI-Sunpool has developed and sells to the retail, home center and dealer channels.”
The acquisition will include the O’need and Kaleidoscope brands as well as certain manufacturing assets at IDI’s production facility and a network of warehouses throughout China.
Xun Wang, who founded IDI in 1993, will join PPG as its managing director of architectural coatings in China.
