PPG Industries was founded in 1883 when Captain John B. Ford and John Pitcairn started the first commercially successful plate glass factory in Pittsburgh, United States. Known as the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co., the enterprise focused on innovation and quality.


As the world's leading supplier of automotive finishes, PPG Industries is one of only a few companies that can supply any type of coating needed for any type of vehicle.


Two out of three cars made in Europe and North America today use PPG technology and knowhow. This makes PPG the supplier of choice for motor manufacturers and bodyshops. Their close links with these manufacturers give them unique insight into new technologies, emerging colour trends and new colour variants.


Through leadership in innovation, sustainability and colour, PPG helps customers in industrial, transportation, consumer products, and construction markets and aftermarkets to enhance more surfaces in more ways than any other company.


PPG Industries is a worldwide company with over 150 manufacturing facilities in more than 60 countries across the globe.


Their vision is to be the world’s leading coatings company by consistently delivering high-quality, innovative and sustainable solutions that customers trust to protect and beautify their products and surroundings.
