PPG automotive refinish unveils redesigned website

Revamped site presents new features, enhancements

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, Dec. 19, 2013 – PPG Industries' (NYSE:PPG) automotive refinish business has launched a new website. The completely redesigned site, www.ppgrefinish.com, went live Dec. 5 and contains new content, organizational and product information enhancements to help paint and collision center professionals find the products, tools and ideas that are vital to their success. Incorporating access to PPG’s automotive refinish and commercial coatings groups, the new site features simpler and faster navigation, enhanced connectivity from mobile devices, redesigned product catalogs and easier access to already popular PPG online features.

“Our new website provides a richer and more satisfying user experience,” said Greg DeCamp, PPG general manager of sales and marketing, refinish, United States and Canada (USCA). “We based our redesign on input from our customers as well as our brand managers, trainers, IT people and other key sources. We wanted to make sure we provided the information customers required in as easy and comprehensive a manner as possible. I believe our customers will find exactly that.

"This new, user-friendly website is part of PPG’s vision to lead the automotive refinish and coatings products industry. Through innovation, sustainability and advanced color solutions, we’re helping our customers do their jobs better and make their businesses more successful.”

The site can now be accessed more easily through mobile devices with PPG’s dynamic platform architecture, which provides better connectivity for Web-enabled tablets and smartphones. The website also offers more intuitive navigation; while longtime site users will find the main menu bar familiar, the entire navigation process has been streamlined to reach site destinations faster.

Finding essential product information for a PPG automotive refinish or commercial coatings brand has never been easier. The product catalogs have been reorganized and require fewer clicks to retrieve technical information and MSDS documents, associated color tools, and volatile organic compound (VOC) content. The FAQs (frequently-asked questions) section, also on the main menu, serves as a one-stop resource for answers about PPG products and programs.

The website also provides live links to the Twitter, Facebook and YouTube social media sites.

PPG invites industry professionals and end-users to visit the new website and experience the changes for themselves. For more about the PPG Automotive Refinish website, visit the site at www.ppgrefinish.com or call 800-647-6050.
