PPG Industries has dedicated a new 95,000-square-foot, 22-acre architectural coatings facility in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, about 15 miles east of Reno.
“This new paint manufacturing facility enhances PPG’s ability to provide superior service to our West Coast customer base, including independent dealers, national accounts and company-owned stores in 12 western states,” said Scott Sinetar, vice president, PPG architectural coatings, North America.
The facility is equipped with advanced process equipment, such as a computer-controlled storage tank and batch compounding system, and automated filling equipment, which exceeds ergonomic standards and helps ensure high quality and efficient throughput rates. Production supports paint batches as large as 10,000 gallons, and the facility will manufacture more than 15 million gallons of water-based latex paint per year at full capacity.
Products will be sold under the Olympic, Lucite, Pittsburgh and other PPG paint brands.
