MOSCOW (MRC) -- PPG announced a four-year agreement with the 30th largest homebuilder, Fischer Homes, under which Fischer Homes will exclusively offer PPG paints products to its customers in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri and Georgia, said Polymerupdate.
The partnership will bring PPG’s high-quality products to new homeowners working with Fischer Homes, enhancing the already well-known design capabilities offered by the company.
“We are proud to partner with PPG to offer our customers a nationally recognized brand of professional-grade paints,” said Jorge Espinosa, market purchasing manager for Fischer Homes. “We are confident that the combination of our design expertise and PPG’s innovative paints and color options will produce beautiful results that exceed our customer expectations.”
The new partnership includes PPG’s full portfolio of professional-grade paints, backed by PPG’s global industry expertise and flexible and reliable customer service. In addition, PPG will join Fischer Homes in their partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by donating the paint and needed supplies for three St. Jude Dream Homes this year.
“PPG has been a leader in the paint and coatings industry for 140 years.

We remind, PPG will invest USD11 million to double the production capacity of its powder coatings plant in San Juan del Rio, Mexico. The expansion project is expected to be completed by mid-2023 and will allow the plant to meet the expected future demand for powder coatings in Mexico.
PPG is a leading supplier of powder coatings to the automotive, transportation, appliance, furniture and other markets. The company expanded the business with its 2020 acquisition of Alpha Coating Technologies, which manufactures powder coatings for light industrial applications and heat-sensitive substrates, and its 2021 acquisition of Worwag, which makes liquid, powder and film coatings for industrial and automotive applications. PPG recently agreed to acquire the powder coatings business of Arsonsisi, including a manufacturing plant in Verbania, Italy.
