PPG products, expertise to support new coatings quality initiativePITTSBURGH, Sept. 12, 2011 – Caterpillar Inc. has selected PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business as the sole heavy-duty equipment coatings supplier for a new motor grader assembly plant in North Little Rock, Ark.

In addition to serving as a single-source coatings supplier, PPG is providing on-site technical and product approval support, and in-plant training of paint-line operators through its Knowledge College service in coating application technologies.

John Valasco, PPG global account manager, said he believes this project will reward PPG’s renewed commitment to heavy-duty equipment coatings. “We’re not there just to sell a gallon of paint or a box of powder,” he said. “We’re working with customers such as Caterpillar to demonstrate our capabilities as a total finishing solutions provider.”
