Founded in 1883 as Pittsburgh Plate Glass by Captain John B. Ford and John Pitcairn in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Today, PPG is a global supplier of paints, coatings, optical products and specialty materials.

They have more than 50,000 employees worldwide, in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific (6,500 in the Asia Pacific region alone).

Through leadership in innovation and sustainability, PPG helps customers in industrial, transportation, consumer products and construction markets and aftermarkets to enhance more surfaces in more ways than any other company.


Since they opened their doors in 1883, PPG has always put innovation first. They were one of the first companies to employ chemists, challenging them to create products that would do more than just make things look good. Today, from smart coatings that absorb pollution to heat-deflecting technology borrowed from eggplant biology, they make coatings that are transforming everything - from the way we work to the way we fly.


They remain steadfast in their commitment to serve the communities where they operate and develop innovative products and sustainable solutions that create value for their stakeholders.
