PPG Industries has acquired certain assets of Huntington Beach, CA-based Coatings Resource Corporation (CRC), producers of paints, lacquers and varnishes for use on metal and wood industrial and consumer products, including audio-visual equipment, sporting goods and automotive interiors. It also produces injectable colorants, blowing agents, processing aids, UV stabilizers and antioxidants used on various types of plastics. CRC operates one manufacturing facility in Huntington Beach and employs approximately 30 people.

The acquired assets include inventory, accounts receivable, key sales and technical personnel, selected equipment, formulations and customer lists. CRC's manufacturing plant in Huntington Beach will not be acquired by PPG but will toll manufacture products for PPG for the foreseeable future.

"This acquisition enables PPG to accelerate growth in key strategic markets for its industrial coatings business," said William Wulfsohn, PPG senior vice president of coatings. "CRC's extensive range of water-based and low-VOC technologies will broaden PPG's existing portfolio of environmentally responsible decorating solutions."

"We are very excited to complete this transaction with PPG," said Jeff Laird, CRC president. "Combining PPG's global reach with CRC's technology will offer a compelling value to the global industrial coatings market."
