PPG Coatings (Wuhu) Co., Ltd. will primarily serve the local market with state-of-the-art technologies. "One of the major reasons to invest in a new plant in Wuhu is to better support one of our key customers, Chery Automotive," said Viktor Sekmakas, president, PPG Asia/Pacific. "We want to help our customers reduce costs, and building a plant close to Chery helps to shorten lead time and increase efficiencies. In addition, this plant will enable us to better support the market in Southern China."
PPG produces automotive coatings in China for customers such as General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen, Chery and Hainan Mazda.
