PPG will implement a 10 percent price increase on all of its industrial coatings products globally. The change will be effective Jan. 1, 2019, or as permissible by contract, and will apply to all industrial coatings end-use segments.

“We continue to be diligent in offsetting costs and exercising cost-control measures across our supply chain to increase efficiency,” Knavish said ion a statement. “Despite these efforts, we must modify our pricing to ensure that we can continue to deliver exceptional technical support and solutions to our customers.”
