Lipetsk, Russia is now home to PPG Industries' (Pittsburgh) newest paint and coatings facility, the company announced last week.

The site, which cost 45 million euros ($49 million) to build, is designed for manufacturing and distributing coatings for automotive, industrial, packaging, and protective and marine applications, the company says, and can produce 25 million liters (6.6 million gallons) of coatings at full capacity. The facility will employ about 200 people, and also includes technical laboratories and administrative offices.

PPG Industries

On June 16, PPG Industries opened its newest paint and coatings facility in Lipetsk, Russia.

According to the company, PPG’s new location is part of an ongoing commitment to growth in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

“Having local manufacturing, distribution and technical operations will help PPG meet growing local demand for its innovative paint and coatings products,” said PPG Senior Vice President Jean-Marie Greindl in a statement.

Construction of the new facility was announced in 2013; it was originally slated for completion in the second half of 2015, and was predicted to employ 150 people instead of 200.

Engaging with Local Community

PPG Industries has also been engaging with Lipetsk’s local community. According to the company, employees volunteered at the Griazy orphanage to help repair and update the building’s gymnasium by replacing floor and wall materials with safer products donated by PPG and its local distributor. The company also donates to a local school in Kolomna, Russia, which is home to a sealants and adhesives plant for PPG.
