PPG Marks 140th Anniversary with Experience Center

PPG opened its customer and employee experience center at its global headquarters in Pittsburgh, Penn.

PPG has opened its customer and employee experience center at its global headquarters in Pittsburgh, Penn. The center showcases paints, coatings and specialty materials and technologies from across the organization. The 1,400-square-foot center is part of a recent renovation of the top two floors of One PPG Place, the company’s global headquarters.

The opening of the customer and employee experience center marked the 140th anniversary of the founding of PPG in 1883 as Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company. Over its history, the company has transformed to become a leading paint, coatings and specialty materials manufacturer, with more than 52,000 employees in more than 70 countries. PPG said.

In addition to the experience center, HQ renovations include new, open-concept workspaces, collaboration areas, meeting rooms and employee kitchens. These are surrounded by views more than 20 PPG paint colors, including PPG’s just-announced 2024 color of the year, Limitless PPG1091-3.

Additional modernization projects across PPG this year include renovations of facilities in Amsterdam; Rueil-Malmaison, France; Prague; and Mexico City; as well as an expansion of the Zhangjiagang plant in China and the opening of a Battery Pack Application Center in Tianjin, the company said.
