PPG is investing in a new distribution centre in Flower Mound, Texas.
The almost 450,000ft2 facility, which will be constructed and leased through Duke Realty, will be the largest distribution centre for architectural paints and coatings in PPG’s USA and Canada network.
The new facility will strengthen the company’s distribution model and allow for improved, efficient service to PPG’s national accounts, company stores and independent retailers across the USA.
The project is expected to be completed in May 2019.
“PPG is incredibly proud to announce the Flower Mound distribution centre project in this important market,” said Dave Cole, PPG Vice President, Architectural Coatings, U.S. and Canada.
“The new facility will continue to grow the presence of PPG in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and allow for even greater efficiency in serving our customers in the south west USA region.”
PPG recently invested approximately US$9M to open 14 stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, bringing the total to nearly 40 PPG PAINTS stores in the region.
PPG’s architectural coatings business employs nearly 900 people in Texas, and the company also supports local industry-relevant science, technology, engineering and math training and education initiatives through the PPG Foundation.
PPG recently partnered with the Regional Hispanic Contractors Association to support the advancement and economic growth of Hispanic contractors in Texas.
