PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries Inc (PPG) announced the completion of a Colourful Communities project in Rolle, Switzerland, that brought colour to a local park and playground used by area residents and tourists visiting Rolle Castle.

The Colourful Communities program provides PPG volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring colour and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world, such as in Rolle, where PPG has its European headquarters.

Recently the company announced the completion of a Colourful Communities project in Milan, Italy, that helped revitalise a historic villa (Villa Arconati) in the hamlet of Castellazzo di Bollate.

The project brought together more than 30 PPG employees to volunteer for a day revitalising the park and playground. PPG provided about $15,500, as well as about 110 litres (29 gallons) of Seigneurie Gauthier paints. The city of Rolle served as a project partner.

The Colourful Communities program is PPG’s signature initiative for community engagement efforts, with the aim to protect and enhance neighbourhoods where PPG operates around the world. The program increases PPG’s commitment to invest in communities and supports projects that transform community spaces, providing PPG volunteers and donated PPG products.

“PPG is committed to protecting and beautifying the communities in which it operates, and we are pleased to help ensure residents and tourists have a colorful experience when they visit this park and playground that is within walking distance of Rolle Castle and our European headquarters,” said Jean-Marie Greindl, senior vice president, global architectural coatings and president, PPG EMEA.
