PITTSBURGH, Jan. 5, 2012 – PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) announced today that it has completed the purchase of European coatings company Dyrup A/S, based in Copenhagen, Denmark, from its owner, Monberg & Thorsen, a public holding company.

The final transaction value, including assumed debt, was €115 million ($150 million), subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

“We are pleased to begin the processes of integrating Dyrup and its many highly skilled employees into our European business and of securing the future for Dyrup’s brands and customers,” said J. Rich Alexander, PPG executive vice president who leads all of the company’s architectural coatings businesses. “The acquisition of Dyrup will help grow PPG’s presence in several key European countries where PPG today has little or no architectural coatings presence, as well as broaden our product offerings.”
