The investments will help the company meet increasing demand for aluminium and steel cans coatings in the beverage, food and personal care markets.

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.

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.

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