PPG is creating an OEM services organisation to support vehicle manufacturers worldwide through an expanded portfolio of technologies, technical services and related capabilities.

The new organisation will serve as a single technical service touchpoint spanning PPG’s complete product offering for automotive and commercial vehicle OEMs.

The automotive OEM services organisation will combine the company’s multiple customer-facing service teams, including Total Service Solutions and Optima Solutions representatives.

The new organisation also will enable PPG to accelerate the development and introduction of new coatings solutions and expand customer access to technologies used in other markets, including aerospace, industrial and consumer electronics.

“This new structure will transform how vehicle OEMs can benefit from our technology and service leadership,” said PPG general manager, automotive OEM services, Dennis Taljan.

“We will be best-in-class not only in terms of the breadth and quality of our coatings products, but also in supporting the daily success of our customers in every production facility.”

The new organisation will further support customers by ensuring consistent application of PPG’s proprietary Secure Launch protocols, which are processes through which new PPG products and related technologies are launched within customer facilities.

“Secure Launch protocols eliminate the countless variables that can negatively affect plant productivity and product quality,” added Taljan. “OEM customers can trust each new coating technology and product from PPG will deliver tangible value from day one.”
