PPG will invest in its facility in Tiel, Netherlands, to increase its capacity for producing PPG INNOVEL non-bisphenol A (BPA) internal coatings by 30%. These coatings are used for beverage cans.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of next year.

The Tiel plant will also double its capacity for producing PPG iSENSE external coatings. This expansion will be completed by the end of this year.

PPG will invest in its facility in Cieszyn, Poland, to double its capacity for producing the PPG NUTRISHIELD line of non-BPA, internal, food can coatings.

Expansion work at the Cieszyn site is scheduled to be completed in the third quarter of this year.

The company has not disclosed the financial details of the expansion investments.

PPG Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) packaging coatings general manager Alessandro Borzino said: “These investments demonstrate our long-term commitment to support our packaging customers across Europe and beyond.

“They will improve our ability to efficiently supply the innovative coatings solutions that canmakers and brands trust.”

Based in Pittsburgh, PPG develops paints, coatings and materials, operating in more than 70 countries.

Last year, the company completed a project to expand the capacity of its facility at Bodelshausen, Germany, for producing packaging coatings.

The project doubled the facility’s capacity for producing white lacquers and expanded its research and development facility.

In 2017, PPG completed the expansion of its facility in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, to add to its capacity for producing packaging coatings.
