PPG opens Wuhu plant for automotive coatings

By Tim Wright

Published August 13, 2008
PPG has opened its new automotive coatings plant in Wuhu, China, where construction of the 40,000-square meter plant began in April 2007. PPG has invested more than $10 million in the facility.

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.
