TIANJIN, CHINA: PPG Industries inaugurated a new manufacturing facility for the production of heavy-duty equipment coatings in Tianjin, China. The Tianjin site also has installed equipment to help reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and preserve the local environment. The new plant will have an annual capacity of 9000 tonne and will produce industrial coatings for China-based manufacturers of heavy-duty machinery, such as agricultural, construction and mining equipment.

PPG has a research centre and a powder coatings plant in Suzhou to help improve local product development, supply-chain efficiency and technical service. The new manufacturing operation in Tianjin improves the regional capacity of PPG’s industrial coatings.

“PPG pursues a sustainable development strategy for all its operations and expansion projects, which is reflected in its eco-friendly products and technologies, energy-efficient production methods and environmentally-responsible manufacturing practices. The strategy not only benefits PPG, its plants and the nearby communities, but it also benefits our customers. The plant opening and installation of new emissions-treatment equipment marks an essential step in our progress toward sustainable development,” said Willie Wu, Vice President, industrial coatings, Asia Pacific, PPG.
