Global coatings company PPG (Pittsburgh) announced that PPG Comex has opened a new $8.8 million distribution center in Guadalajara, Mexico.

PPG says the center is capable of storing more than 2.8 million gallons of more than 15,000 paint and coatings products. The nearly 21,500-square-foot facility is the brand’s ninth distribution center in the country.

“Guadalajara is Mexico’s third-largest economic hub and a strategic location in PPG’s supply chain,” said Henrik Bergstrom, President, PPG Comex.

“The new center expands our capability to serve customers in even the most remote locations in the western part of the country. It also helps strengthen our position as one of the largest retailers in Mexico, facilitating the renovation of 160,000 homes each day.”

PPG acquired Comex in 2014 in a transaction that was valued at $2.3 billion.

PPG Comex directly employs 4,500 people in Mexico, and its more than 4,600 independently owned and operated Comex stores in the country employ an additional 18,000 people.

The company has five manufacturing facilities, nine distribution centers, four training centers and four research centers in Mexico and Central America. PPG Comex lines include decorative paints, waterproofing products, wood care products, industrial coatings and sundry products.
