PPG to acquire aerospace coatings producer Deft

17 May 2013

PPG Industries has announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire certain assets of Deft Incorporated, a privately-owned speciality coatings company based in Irvine, California, USA. Deft’s primary business is supplying structural primers and military topcoats to the North American aviation industry and it has smaller architectural and industrial coatings businesses.

"Acquiring Deft will advance PPG’s strategy to remain a leading aerospace coatings supplier,” said Barry Gillespie, PPG VP, Aerospace. "Deft’s waterborne and chrome-free technologies complement PPG’s existing coatings capabilities and will provide PPG with a broader product portfolio, particularly within the aerospace industry.”
