    PPG Marks Completion of $3 Million Expansion at Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Plant


    PPG has opened a nearly $3 million expansion for packaging coatings manufacturing at its Oak Creek, Wisconsin, plant. The 3,300-square-foot facility adds capacity for the production of food-can coatings to meet growing customer demand.

    PPG’s new generation of food-can coatings is designed to help canmakers and brand-owners meet increasing food-contact regulatory requirements. The coatings are certified by independent institutes as being food-contact compliant, in accordance with both North American and European regulations. As regulations and market demands change, the Oak Creek facility will now have greater flexibility for production of specialized solutions to meet new requirements.

    "This expansion significantly increases our packaging coatings manufacturing capability in the U.S., enabling us to meet growing demand for our industry-leading food-can coatings," said Ken West, PPG vice president, packaging coatings. "This investment shows PPG’s continuing commitment to the packaging industry, and it strengthens our ability to meet emerging customer requirements for innovative technological solutions."

    PPG provides a comprehensive array of packaging coatings products and services to optimize customers' processes, meet their specific requirements and comply with various regulations. It offers a complete Bisphenol A non-intent (BPA-NI, or with no BPA intentionally added) system including NUTRISHIELD brand products for coating various types of cans and metal containers.
