PPG to sell fine chemicals business

PPG Industries has signed an agreement with ZaCh System S.p.A., the fine chemicals subsidiary of Zambon Company S.p.A., Milan, Italy, under which the company would divest its fine chemicals business for approximately $65 million. Completion of the transaction is expected in the fourth quarter.

"Following last week's announcement of our potential divestiture of our auto glass businesses, this transaction is yet another step toward achieving PPG's vision of continuing to be the leading coatings and specialty products and services company," said Charles E. Bunch, PPG chairman and CEO.
