PPG Industries Completes $5 Million Expansion of Wuppertal, Germany, Coatings Plant

PPG Industries announced the completion of a $5 million expansion at its coatings manufacturing facility in Wuppertal, Germany. The project added equipment to existing buildings on the campus, supporting up to a 35% increase in annual production capacity of environmentally sustainable waterborne coatings for automotive and industrial applications. The facility, which employs more than 190 people, plans to hire employees to manage the increased capacity. The additional capacity will enable PPG to meet increasing demand for its waterborne coatings by automotive manufacturers and industrial customers in the region. Waterborne coatings use water as a base instead of the chemical solvents used in traditional coatings. In addition to a heightened focus throughout Europe on using sustainable products and practices, waterborne-coatings demand is being driven by adoption of compact-paint-process technologies by automotive manufacturers in Europe. Compact paint processes reduce the number of steps needed to paint a vehicle, enabling manufacturers to reduce energy used during the process and downsize the space required for the paint process in a manufacturing facility.

PPG Industries, Inc. Announces Amendment to Articles of Incorporation

In connection with the two-for-one stock split of the common stock of PPG Industries, Inc., effected in the form of a 100% stock dividend paid on June 12, 2015, the Board of Directors of the company approved an Amendment to the Company's Restated Articles of Incorporation. As authorized by Pennsylvania law, the Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation increased the number of shares of authorized common stock of the Company in the same proportion by which the number of shares distributed in the stock dividend increased the number of shares of issued common stock (which doubled the number of shares of authorized common stock). The Amendment increased the number of shares of common stock authorized under the Articles of Incorporation to 1,200,000,000 shares, and increased the total number of shares authorized in the Articles of Incorporation to 1,210,000,000 shares (which includes, in the aggregate, the authorized shares of common stock and 10,000,000 authorized shares of preferred stock). The number of shares of authorized preferred stock did not change as a result of the Amendment.
