Caterpillar Inc. has selected PPG Industries’ industrial coatings business as the sole heavy-duty equipment coatings supplier for a new 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 believed the project would 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 said. “We’re working with customers such as Caterpillar to demonstrate our capabilities as a total finishing solutions provider.”

Industrial Coatings

PPG Industrial Coatings produces coatings for appliances, agricultural and construction equipment, consumer electronics, automotive parts, residential and commercial construction, wood flooring and other finished products.

The heavy-duty equipment line includes electrocoat primers; liquid coatings, including Spectracron and Aquacron products; powder primers and topcoats, including Envirocron; and pre-treatment products such as iron, zinc and ambient temperature phosphates.
