PPG is investing US$15M in a new 38,750-square-foot (3600-square-meter) application support centre (ASC) at the Seletar Aerospace Park near the Seletar Airport in Singapore.
The project is the company’s largest investment to date in South East Asia.
Scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2020, the ASC will accommodate increased demand for aerospace sealants and coatings, chemical management services and the packaging of third-party products.
“This investment acknowledges the aerospace industry’s strong growth in South East Asia,” said Ranju Arya, PPG General Manager, Aerospace Products, Asia Pacific.
“Having this state-of-the-art facility in Seletar will help increase collaboration and allow PPG to deliver efficient, value-added services to our customers locally.”
PPG’s global aerospace business offers coatings, sealants, transparencies, packaging and application systems and transparent armour, as well as chemical management and other services.
