PPG will supply new Caterpillar plant in Arkansas
13. September 2011
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.”
