PPG receives John Deere Supplier Innovation Award for 2016

PITTSBURGH, March 30, 2017 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) has been named a recipient of a John Deere Supplier Innovation Award for 2016. The award is presented to select John Deere suppliers who have demonstrated innovation in a product or service they provide.

PPG supplies coatings, chemicals and other innovative solutions to all John Deere equipment divisions globally.

John Deere created the supplier innovation awards in 2009 to promote innovation in the company’s supply base and recognize suppliers who think creatively. Award selections are based on four factors—creativity, feasibility, collaboration and bottom-line impact.

“It’s rewarding to know that our customers are benefiting from the innovative products PPG is committed to bringing to the market,” said Scott Laney, PPG business development manager, industrial coatings. “This recognition from John Deere is an honor, and proof positive that we’re making a difference for our customers.”

PPG attendees will accept the recognition during formal ceremonies April 18 in the Quad Cities.
