PPG announced May 22 the opening of a new, nearly 450,000-square-foot facility on Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound, making it the largest distribution center for architectural paints and coatings in the company’s U.S. and Canadian network.
“PPG is committed to making significant strategic investments in the architectural coatings business,” said Tim Knavish, PPG senior vice president, global architectural coatings and president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, in a news release. “This facility is another example of our dedication to growing the business and strengthening our overall distribution strategy.”
Located in the Lakeside Ranch Business Park, the distribution center serves more than 1,000 PPG PAINTS stores, national retailers and independent retailers in the southwest U.S. region. It can store in excess of 4 million gallons of more than 4,500 unique paint and coatings products.
“At PPG, meeting our customers’ needs is our top priority,” said Don Donatelli, PPG director, distribution and logistics, architectural coatings, in a news release. “This new facility will allow PPG to provide faster, more efficient service to a number of national retailers, PPG Paints stores, and independent retailers throughout the southwest U.S.”
PPG owns and operates nearly 40 PPG Paints stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth region and also sells its products through local independent retailers in the area. PPG’s architectural coatings business employs nearly 900 people in Texas.
