June 17, 2016—PPG announced Thursday that it has expanded several of its business development centers, improving PPG’s capability to train painters, distributors, and collision repair professionals.

The Allison Park facility, minutes from PPG’s global headquarters in Pittsburgh, has expanded from 2,400 square feet to 9,000 square feet and includes two new GFS downdraft spray booths and a downdraft prep deck. The Baltimore facility has expanded from 5,520 square feet to 7,020 square feet.

“We trained over 16,000 students last year—more than any other automotive paint company,” Randy Cremeans, PPG director of training, said. “Painters, technicians, distributors and the entire spectrum of collision repair professionals rely on us to provide the best training opportunities possible. By maintaining exceptional facilities staffed by PPG training professionals, we’re creating an elite environment where we conduct the kind of training that ensures PPG customers can stay far ahead of their competition.”
