PPG Combines Aircraft Businesses

September 29, 2000
PPG Industries is combining its aircraft transparency and aerospace coatings and sealants businesses to form a new unit—aerospace products. “We believe a unified strategy is the best method for creating greater value for the commercial, military and general aviation industries we serve,” said Charles E. Bunch, executive vice president for coatings.

Dennis Kovalsky, formerly vice president, aerospace coatings and sealants, will lead the combined business from Glendale, Ca., becoming vice president, aerospace products.
