2/5/2010 Salvo Coatings Becomes Value­Added Reseller of PPG Marine Coatings

March 27, 2015

Tucker, GA—Salvo Coatings LLC, a boutique coating firm with expertise in thin­ and thick ­film coatings, is proud to announce that it has become a value-added reseller for PPG Protective & Marine Coatings. Under the terms of the agreement, Salvo Coatings will help modify the formulations of current PPG products to achieve required results for markets that are not currently served. “The goal of this agreement is to take the customer pull and translate that into specifications for products,” said Salvo Coatings chief technology officer Patrick Kelly. The Salvo team will review PPG’s extensive library of coatings to find the best fit for the task at hand, working with the PPG chemists to modify the formulations as necessary to meet customer requirements. “This is a first for both companies,” said Kelly. “Although we have been working together closely for years, it represents a shift in the relationship. Salvo is now more of a value-added reseller, whereas in the past, we were strictly a distributor for opportunities we brought forward.” The initial programs have proven quite successful in pilot trials. As these programs move to manufacturing, more products will be jointly developed, opening up new pathways for innovation.
