PPG to Construct Paint and Coatings Facility in Loudon County

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter and PPG officials announced the company has selected Loudon as the location of its newest paint and coatings manufacturing facility.

PPG will invest a total of $225 million and create 129 new jobs in Loudon County through the project.

The Loudon plant will be PPG’s first new U.S. manufacturing facility in the last 15 years and is part of the company’s greater investment to expand and innovate advanced manufacturing in North America.
