Temple Economic Development Corporation announced PPG will invest $9 million to expand an existing product line at its Temple, Texas facility pending final negotiations with Temple EDC, the City of Temple, and Bell County. The project, which includes the expansion of PPG’s adhesives and sealants line, will result in the creation of 12 jobs.
“We are pleased to continue working with PPG as they advance their business operations in Temple, Texas,” said Adrian Cannady, president and CEO of Temple EDC. “The company has found great success in our community, and we look forward to the opportunities this continued growth will bring to our residents.”
“Our expanded partnership with Temple EDC is not only an investment in the community of Temple, Texas, creating new jobs in the area, but also an extension of our adhesives and sealants line, products that our professional (“Pro”) customers rely on to complete many of their jobs,” said Scott Bartlett, PPG vice president, Operations, Global Architectural Coatings. “We look forward to continuing to partner with Temple EDC to better service the Pro and drive growth for both organizations.”
