PPG, a company that develops and delivers paints and coatings, plans to locate its new nearly 450,000-square-foot distribution center in Flower Mound, Texas.
The facility, which will be constructed and leased through Duke Realty, will be the largest distribution center for architectural paints and coatings in PPG’s U.S. and Canada network, a company spokesperson said.
According to company officials, it will strengthen the company’s distribution model and allow for improved, efficient service to PPG’s national accounts, company stores and independent retailers across the U.S. The project is expected to be completed in May 2019.
“PPG is incredibly proud to announce the Flower Mound distribution center project in this important market,” said Dave Cole, PPG Vice President, Architectural Coatings, U.S. and Canada. “The new facility will continue to grow the presence of PPG in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and allow for even greater efficiency in serving our customers in the Southwest U.S. region.”
PPG recently invested approximately $9 million to open 14 stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, bringing the total to nearly 40 PPG PAINTS stores in the region.
PPG’s architectural coatings business employs nearly 900 people in Texas, and the company also supports local industry-relevant science, technology, engineering and math training and education initiatives through the PPG Foundation. PPG recently partnered with the Regional Hispanic Contractors Association to support the advancement and economic growth of Hispanic contractors in Texas.
