PPG Industries has acquired the business of Ducol Coatings South Africa (PTY) Ltd., which has served as an importer and distributor of PPG’s automotive refinish products in South Africa since 2003. Ducol Coatings, based in Krugersdorp, northwest of Johannesburg, was formed in 1990 and has been active throughout South Africa and in Namibia. PPG will continue to use the Ducol brand, as well as Ducol Coatings’ former franchisee and distributor network, giving PPG access to a solid, proven distribution network in the growing South African and surrounding markets. Many of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers have a presence in South Africa, and over the next several years, PPG anticipates that population growth and higher purchasing power will lead to more vehicle sales and increased demand for automotive refinish products.
