Market Outlook: PPG Industries to grow coatings and sealants

ICIS Chemical Business (April 17, 2015)

Mergers and acquisitions are a key part of PPG’s growth strategy to build out its global coatings franchise, and enhance adjacencies in adhesives and sealants

It’s been an impressive track record of growth during a span of 132 years for PPG Industries. And the story is far from over. With a solid balance sheet even after making its second largest acquisition ever, and a market focused R&D engine, the global coatings giant is set to expand its footprint further.

PPG is in the process of integrating its $2.3bn acquisition of Mexico’s leading architectural coatings firm Comex, completed in November 2014. While the company faces foreign exchange (FX) headwinds on Comex from the stronger US dollar as well as the impact of weaker oil prices on an oil-dependent economy, the deal positions PPG as a leader in the growing Mexico consumer market.

“The performance of Comex has been good and we are pleased with the growth. The integration work with our existing PPG business in Mexico is going well,” said Charles Bunch, chairman and CEO of PPG.

From glass to gloss: PPG puts laser focus on coatings business

From the Pittsburgh Business Times: Facing mounting pressure from globalization in the late 1990s, executives at PPG Industries Inc. knew they had a decision to make about the company’s future.

“Historically PPG had been in a number of businesses … but we did feel that we had to make some choices,” said Charles Bunch, who has served as the company’s chairman and CEO since 2005.

“We really looked at our portfolio and what our business was going to look like going forward,” he continued. “We felt that we had to focus on our key businesses, our strongest businesses. … It was then that we decided to focus our efforts around growth in coatings.”
