PPG Protective & Marine Coatings Price Increases

Monday, February 28, 2011
PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) protective and marine coatings (PMC) business announced that it is raising prices globally, as permissible by contract.
 
“As economies recover from the global recession, prices for basic commodities such as copper are increasing at alarming rates,” said Thomas Mauck, PPG vice president, protective and marine coatings. “Also, prices for epoxy and other processed raw materials that PMC uses are rising to account for the high costs of basic commodities. Based on current information and conditions, we forecast these inflationary trends will continue during 2011.”
