About Us

Global strength, local support – go with the market leader

Running a successful collision repair centre in today’s ultra-competitive industry means it’s more important than ever to choose strategic partners that provide stability and support across all areas of your business. As the world’s number one producer of transportation coatings, PPG Industries’ unrivalled ability to combine global resources and technology with extensive local expertise has cemented its position as the clear refinish market leader across Australia and New Zealand.

Advanced product solutions

From bare metal through to the final polish phase and every step in between, PPG brands offer a comprehensive selection of technically superior refinish solutions. As well as the world’s most advanced waterborne basecoat system, Envirobase® High Performance, there is also a choice of reliable and ultra- efficient solvent-borne basecoat systems to suit virtually any performance and budget criteria. Specifically formulated commercial transport systems cater to the unique demands of painting heavy vehicles, while customers will find the very latest in special effects finishes in the PPG Vibrance Collection® custom paint finishes. Along with a high quality finish, every PPG system delivers high productivity and efficiency, combined with ease of use and cost effectiveness. Advanced colour tools are part of the package, including industry leading colour retrieval software and the advanced colour matching technology of the RapidMatch™ system.

Local manufacture

Local manufacturing is another crucial factor – the PPG Industries plant in Clayton, Victoria is world-class and one of only four ‘centres of manufacturing excellence’ the company operates globally. The advanced products manufactured at Clayton not only benefit the local market – they are also exported to Asia and other world markets to meet global demand.

Business support

Despite being market leader, PPG Industries is committed to offering much more. There is a determination to also be the leader in providing a whole network of services which are dedicated to customer success. Highlights include the MVP bodyshop development program where an expert, region-wide MVP Team works closely with customers to offer support on every aspect of collision centre operation – from workshop efficiency, to accurate job costing and financial management.


As the largest provider of refinish training in Australia and New Zealand, PPG is a strong supporter of ongoing technician training. Indeed, the region-wide PPG Training Team is on-hand with a comprehensive range of courses covering the very latest ‘best practice’ paint application techniques and repair processes.
