PPG Named a Preferred Supplier to Volvo

PPG Automotive Refinish has been named as one of
the preferred suppliers by Volvo Car Corporation for its worldwide network of dealerships as well as for independent collision centres around the globe. The designation includes PPG’s waterborne Envirobase High Performance, and Nexa Autocolor Aquabase Plus.

Volvo’s objective is to provide its customers with premium-level repair quality in the aftermarket.
Consequently, Volvo rigorously tests all materials to make certain they meet the company’s strict standards before they are approved.

“Being designated as one of the preferred suppliers by Volvo is something to take great pride in,” said Ken Davis, PPG manager, OEM business development. “Volvo is well known for its quality and to be one of their approved suppliers is recognition of the quality of our products. We will, of course, work closely with them to provide complete support to Volvo dealerships and independent shops around the world.”

Peter Larsson, Volvo’s deputy director, painted body engineering, said, “One of the major criteria for
selecting preferred suppliers is quality assurance which will safeguard the Volvo repair quality in our
network. PPG continues to demonstrate high quality and commitment for its paint products and processes. I am very pleased to say this collaboration will bring benefits to our international network.”
PPG’s waterborne products, Envirobase High Performance, and Nexa Autocolor Aquabase Plus coatings, are currently in use in North America and Europe.
