PPG Industries have announced the relocation and expansion of the Toulouse, France-area aerospace sales office.
In addition to housing staff who serve regional customers, the larger facility includes a paint spray booth, and a technical laboratory is being completed for transparency engineering analysis starting later in 2012.
The new facility includes a climate-controlled paint spray booth for product optimisation and application training, the facility’s laboratory for transparency engineering analysis will enhance window development and increase convenience for airframe manufacturers and airlines in the region.
Pascal Chaumel, Airbus nose fuselage architect, said,
For PPG to have windshield analysis capability so close to our Toulouse facility will enable us to gain better understanding in the design and development process while being more effective in communicating with our administration, program, aftermarket support and quality departments as well as our customers.
