PPG Opens Regional Headquarters Building in Cranberry

by John Jordan
PPG Industries opened its regional headquarters for its architectural coatings business in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico here on Thursday.

The 118,000-square-foot building will accommodate approximately 550 employees in various management, marketing, information technology, customer support and related service and administration positions, the company states. Nearly 400 employees currently work at the site and PPG anticipates the facility will be close to full capacity by the end of 2015 as it continues to consolidate operations from multiple sites.

The grand opening event was attended by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, PPG leadership, along with more than 200 PPG employees.

“As PPG continues to expand its architectural coatings business, establishing a regional headquarters is an important step in aligning our business to meet our customers’ growing needs,” says Charles E. Bunch, PPG chairman and CEO. “The official opening of this facility further strengthens our presence in the state and in the Pittsburgh area, which has been home to our global headquarters for more than 130 years.”

The facility features an open floor plan with collaborative workspaces, an amphitheater for large-scale employee meetings and presentations, a product showcase store, training facilities and areas to pilot retail displays.
