Global coatings company PPG announced last least week that it is investing $1.7 million into a new dispense cell at its Kunshan, China, manufacturing facility.

The new cell is expected to be fully operational in the next month, and will increase production flexibility and productivity at the site, according to the company, adding that the investment will also deliver cost savings, shortened delivery cycles and reduced emissions.

“Our Kunshan facility is tasked with locally supplying our protective and marine coatings customers in China,” said Mike Horton, vice president, protective and marine coatings, Asia Pacific.

“This investment will deliver rapid response supply tailored to our protective customers’ needs in China. The dispense cell will produce the required quantity and quality of protective coatings product in a matter of minutes in an enclosed process that maximizes environmental performance.”

The plant produces protective and marine coatings, and houses the PPG Asia Research and Development Center. It also houses a passive fire protection coatings lab.
