Pony International has formed a partnership with PPG Industries to continue creating innovative performance and athletic shoes with the latest technologies in state-of-the-art coating systems provided by PPG.
“The partnership’s objective is to develop a coating system to perform over multiple substrates, enhance the quality of performance and appearance, provide innovation to design, and be an effective tool to Pony for market differentiation to customers,” said Colin Brickley, Pony’s public relations and sports marketing director. “The Vivaflex color system by PPG provides an exciting palette of colors and finishes derived from PPG’s history of color creation in industrial, automotive, architectural and aerospace markets.”
“The Vivaflex coating system will significantly impact how we design, develop and manufacture footwear,” said Nathan Crary, Pony’s vice president of development.
