PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) announced on June 12, 2008  that its architectural coatings business will execute another round of price increases as a result of rapidly accelerating raw material and energy costs.

The increases will be implemented during the third quarter of 2008 across all distribution channels.

“The persistent raw material and energy cost increases that we continue to face are impacting every aspect of our business,” said Scott Sinetar, PPG vice president, architectural coatings. “We have been extremely aggressive in reducing controllable, internal costs, but these measures cannot sufficiently offset the continuing market-driven inflationary pressures.”

PPG Architectural Coatings supplies architectural paint and coatings for residential, commercial and industrial uses through home centers, company-owned paint stores and independent dealers nationwide. Its brands include Pittsburgh Paints, Porter Paints and Olympic Paints and Stains.
