PPG will supply new Caterpillar plant in Arkansas

Motor grader assembly plant will be in North Little Rock

                   

 

PPG Industries industrial coatings business has announced that they will be the sole heavy-duty equipment coatings supplier for a new Caterpillar Inc motor grader assembly plant in North Little Rock, Ark.

 

In addition to serving as a single-source coatings supplier, PPG is providing on-site technical and product approval support, and in-plant training of paint-line operators through its Knowledge College service in coating application technologies.

 

John Valasco, PPG global account manager, said he believes this project will reward PPG’s renewed commitment to heavy-duty equipment coatings.

 

“We’re not there just to sell a gallon of paint or a box of powder,” he says. “We’re working with customers such as Caterpillar to demonstrate our capabilities as a total finishing solutions provider.”
