PPG Coatings Application Plant for Fasteners, Small Parts Opens on Schedule in Taiwan

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has opened Alltech Engineered Finishes in Taiwan - a facility that serves the fastener and small parts industry by applying PPG's electrocoat and dip-spin coatings.

Located in the Hsiao Kang District of Koahsiung, the plant coats parts for construction, industrial, electronics and automotive applications, with capacity to serve existing regional customers and room for expansion.

"With the opening of this coating services facility in Taiwan, PPG is demonstrating its commitment to growth and investment in Asia," said William A. Wulfsohn, senior vice president, coatings. "We're adding premium coating support in the region for the world-leading Taiwanese high-quality fastener manufacturing and small parts industry."

This venture is PPG's first wholly owned, self-contained coating application facility.

"PPG completed this project on time and under budget, beginning construction in late 2005 and finishing it in June," said Viktor Sekmakas, vice president, coatings, and managing director for PPG's Asia/Pacific operations. "We effectively marshaled PPG's global resources to set up a new business venture in the Asia/Pacific region, and I'm extremely proud of the global, cross-business team that made it happen."

Nate Goodnow, managing director of PPG Coating Services, said, "The industry has been excited about the introduction of Alltech's level of coatings competence in Taiwan, with state-of-the-art equipment and technology for processing zinc phosphate conversion coatings and multiple colors of electrocoat. PPG's coating sophistication provides a new, in-country resource to enhance Taiwanese fastener manufacturers' value offering to the global marketplace."
