PPG To Build Resin Plant in China

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Comment | More

PPG Industries, headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, held a groundbreaking ceremony on October 22 for its first resin production facility in mainland China. The plant is being built at Zhangjiagang Yangtze International Chemical Industrial Park, Jiangsu province, and will supply other PPG plants throughout China, as well as automotive and industrial customers.

The plant will primarily produce water-based electrodeposition resins, which the company says provide a more environmentally-responsible alternative to traditional resin products. The plant, scheduled to begin operation in early 2011, will span 60,000 square meters, and initial production capacity will be 27,000 metric tons.

According to Charles E. Bunch, PPG chairman of the board and CEO, the Zhangjiagang plant is the 14th plant PPG has opened in greater China. The company currently operates resin facilities in the U.S., Europe, Brazil, Australia, South Korea, and Mexico.
