Business Segments Description

Performance Coatings and Industrial Coatings

PPG is a major global supplier of protective and decorative coatings. The Performance Coatings and Industrial Coatings reportable segments supply protective and decorative finishes for customers in a wide array of end use markets including industrial equipment, appliances and packaging; factory-finished aluminum extrusions and steel and aluminum coils; marine and aircraft equipment; automotive original equipment; and other industrial and consumer products. In addition to supplying finishes to the automotive original equipment market, PPG supplies automotive refinishes to the aftermarket. The coatings industry is highly competitive and consists of a few large firms with global presence and many smaller firms serving local or regional markets. PPG competes in its primary markets with the world’s largest coatings companies, most of which have global operations, and many smaller regional coatings companies. The major global competitors of our Performance Coatings reportable segment are Akzo Nobel NV, BASF Corporation, the DuPont Company and the Sherwin-Williams Company. The major global competitors of our Industrial Coatings reportable segment are Akzo Nobel NV, BASF Corporation, the DuPont Company and Valspar Corp. Product development, innovation, quality and technical and customer service have been stressed by PPG and have been significant factors in developing an important supplier position by PPG’s coatings businesses comprising the Performance Coatings and Industrial Coatings reportable segments.

The Performance Coatings reportable segment is comprised of the refinish, aerospace and architectural coatings businesses. The refinish coatings business produces coatings products for automotive/fleet repair and refurbishing, light industrial coatings for a wide array of markets and specialty coatings for signs. These products are sold primarily through distributors. The aerospace coatings business supplies sealants, coatings, paint strippers, technical cleaners, transparent armor and transparencies for commercial, military, regional jet and general aviation aircraft. We supply products to aircraft manufacturers, maintenance and aftermarket customers around the world both on a direct basis and through a company-owned distribution network. Product performance, technology, quality, distribution and technical and customer service are major competitive factors in these coatings businesses. The architectural coatings business primarily produces coatings used by painting and maintenance contractors and by consumers for decoration and maintenance. We also supply coatings and finishes for the protection of metals and structures to metal fabricators, heavy duty maintenance contractors and manufacturers of ships, bridges, rail cars and shipping containers. Beginning in 2008, after the completion of the SigmaKalon acquisition, these products will be reported in a new protective and marine coatings operating segment that will be a part of the Performance Coatings reportable business segment. Performance Coatings products are sold through a combination of company-owned stores, home centers, paint dealers, independent distributors, and directly to customers. Price, product performance, quality, distribution and brand recognition are key competitive factors for the architectural coatings business. The architectural coatings business operates approximately 440 company-owned stores in North America and approximately 80 company-owned stores in Australia resulting from the acquisition in 2007 of Barloworld Coatings Australia.

The Industrial Coatings reportable segment is comprised of the automotive, industrial and packaging coatings businesses. The industrial and automotive coatings businesses sell directly to a variety of manufacturing companies. Industrial, automotive and packaging coatings are formulated specifically for the customers’ needs and application methods. PPG also supplies adhesives and sealants for the automotive industry and metal pretreatments and related chemicals for industrial and automotive applications. The packaging coatings business supplies coatings and inks for aerosol, food and beverage containers for consumer products to the manufacturers of those containers. Product performance, technology, quality, and technical and customer service are major competitive factors in these coatings businesses.

The Performance Coatings and Industrial Coatings reportable segments operate production facilities around the world. These facilities are usually shared and produce products sold by several businesses of the Industrial Coatings and Performance Coatings reportable segments. North American production facilities consist of 28 plants in the United States, two in Canada and one in Mexico. The three largest facilities in the United States are the Delaware, Ohio, plant, which primarily produces automotive refinishes; the Oak Creek, Wis., plant, which primarily produces industrial coatings; and the Cleveland, Ohio, plant, which primarily produces automotive original coatings. Outside North America, PPG operates five plants in Italy, three plants each in Australia, Brazil, China, Germany and Spain, two plants each in England, France, South Korea and the Netherlands, and one plant each in Argentina, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We also have an alliance with Kansai Paint. The venture, known as PPG Kansai Automotive Finishes, is owned 60% by PPG and 40% by Kansai Paint. The focus of the venture is Japanese-based automotive original equipment manufacturers in North America and Europe. In addition, PPG and Kansai Paint are developing technology jointly, potentially benefiting customers worldwide. PPG owns equity interests in coatings operations in Canada, India and Japan. Additionally, the automotive coatings business operates five service centers in the United States, two in Poland, and one each in Italy, Mexico, and Portugal to provide just-in-time delivery and service to selected automotive assembly plants. Fifteen training centers each in Europe and the United States, 11 in Asia, three in South America, two in Canada, and one in Mexico are in operation. These centers provide training for automotive aftermarket refinish customers. The aerospace business operates a global network of application support centers strategically located close to our customers around the world that provide technical support and just-in-time delivery of customized solutions to improve customer efficiency and productivity. Also, several automotive original coatings application centers are in operation throughout the world that provide testing facilities for customer paint processes and new products.


On January 2, 2008, PPG completed the acquisition of SigmaKalon Group (“SigmaKalon”), a worldwide coatings producer based in Uithoorn, Netherlands. The results of operations of SigmaKalon will be included in PPG’s consolidated financial statements from the acquisition date onward. SigmaKalon produces architectural, protective, marine and industrial coatings. The protective, marine and industrial coatings businesses of SigmaKalon will be managed as part of PPG’s existing coatings businesses. The SigmaKalon architectural coatings business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa will be reported in 2008 as a new separate reportable business segment known as Architectural Coatings–EMEA. This business represents about 75% of SigmaKalon’s historical sales.

SigmaKalon’s architectural production facilities consist of four plants in the Netherlands, three plants in France, two plants each in China and the United Kingdom, and one plant each in Cameroon, Czech Republic, Egypt, French Guadeloupe, French Guyana, French Martinique, French New Caledonia, French Reunion Island, Gabon, Hungary, Ivory Coast, Poland, Senegal, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Suriname and the Ukraine. The industrial coatings business of SigmaKalon operates one facility each in Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland. The protective and marine coatings business of SigmaKalon operates one facility each in Belgium, China, Indonesia, Korea, and Malaysia. SigmaKalon sells coatings through a combination of approximately 500 company-owned stores, home centers, paint dealers, independent distributors, and directly to customers.
