PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) today marked the opening of a regional headquarters for its architectural coatings business in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. The facility is located in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, approximately 20 miles north of PPG’s global headquarters in Pittsburgh.

The 118,000-square-foot facility will accommodate approximately 550 employees in various management, marketing, information technology, customer support and related service and administration positions. Nearly 400 employees currently work at the site, and PPG anticipates the facility will be close to full capacity by the end of 2015 as it continues to consolidate operations from multiple sites.

“As PPG continues to expand its architectural coatings business, establishing a regional headquarters is an important step in aligning our business to meet our customers’ growing needs,” said Charles E. Bunch, PPG chairman and CEO. “The official opening of this facility further strengthens our presence in the state and in the Pittsburgh area, which has been home to our global headquarters for more than 130 years.”

“Our new headquarters serving the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico will allow us to enhance collaboration within our business, enabling us to continue building the strong brands within our product portfolio,” said Scott Sinetar, PPG vice president, architectural coatings, U.S. and Canada.

The facility features an open floor plan with collaborative workspaces, an amphitheater for large-scale employee meetings and presentations, product showcase store, training facilities and areas to pilot retail displays. The grand opening event featured speeches by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett and PPG leadership, and it was attended by more than 200 PPG employees.

“Throughout the Pittsburgh region and the entire commonwealth, we are seeing well-known, well-respected Pennsylvania companies like PPG choosing our Keystone State as the best place to build their businesses, create jobs and grow our economy,” Corbett said. “Government should be an advocate, not an adversary, to creating jobs, and we are building a stronger Pennsylvania by making sure our commonwealth remains the best place to live, work and thrive. This is a great day for PPG and a great day for Pennsylvania.”

PPG Industries' North American architectural coatings business has a new home.

On Thursday (Sept. 25), the company cut the ribbon on a regional headquarters in Cranberry Township, PA, about 20 miles north of PPG's global headquarters in Pittsburgh.

PPG said the new 118,000-square-foot facility would provide much-needed management, marketing, information technology, customer support and administrative space for PPG's vast architectural coatings business, which greatly expanded last year with the acquisition of AkzoNobel's North American portfolio.

PPG chairman and CEO Charles E. Bunch addressed the grand-opening crowd, which included (facing, from left) Scott B. Sinetar, PPG's VP of architectural coatings for U.S. and Canada; PPG COO Michael H. McGarry; and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett.

“As PPG continues to expand its architectural coatings business, establishing a regional headquarters is an important step in aligning our business to meet our customers’ growing needs,” said chairman and CEO Charles E. Bunch.

“The official opening of this facility further strengthens our presence in the state and in the Pittsburgh area, which has been home to our global headquarters for more than 130 years.”

550 Employees

The facility will accommodate about 550 employees. Nearly 400 employees are already on site, and PPG anticipates reaching full capacity by the end of 2015 as it consolidates operations from multiple sites.

The facility features an open floor plan with collaborative workspaces, an amphitheater for large-scale employee meetings and presentations, product showcase store, training facilities and areas to pilot retail displays.

PPG Regional HQ

The facility, 20 miles north of PPG's global headquarters in Pittsburgh, will house 550 employees, including some who will relocate from operations that are being consolidated, PPG said.

The grand opening drew more than 200 employees, PPG executives, and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, who called the event "a great day for PPG and a great day for Pennsylvania."

PPG Architectural Coatings is a leading global supplier of residential and commercial coatings and products. The business produces paints, stains and specialty coatings and products under well-known brands such as Flood, Glidden, Homas, Liquid Nails, Olympic and PPG Pittsburgh Paints.

Founded in 1883, PPG reported $15.1 billion in net sales in 2013. The company operates in nearly 70 countries worldwide.
