PPG facilities manufacturing aircraft transparencies have been recognised by customer Northrop Grumman in supplier awards
The Huntsville aircraft transparencies facility and the Los Angeles and Atlanta Application Support Centres operated by PPG Industries’ aerospace business have been honoured by Northrop Grumman as 2009 Platinum Source Preferred suppliers for their performance and quality in delivering transparencies, coatings, sealants and other value-added services.

This is the fourth time PPG Aerospace’s Los Angeles and Atlanta centres have received the Northrop Grumman award, which recognizes companies for achieving distinction in product quality, on-time delivery, customer satisfaction and robust lean processes. Northrop Grumman honoured 69 supplier locations.

“Being recognised for a job well done is no small matter, especially when that recognition comes from a company as prestigious as Northrop Grumman,” said Dave Morris, PPG Aerospace vice president and general manager for the Americas. “We are especially pleased by the continued achievement of our people at the Los Angeles and Atlanta ASCs and the award-winning performance of the people at our Huntsville plant. The PPG Aerospace team is committed to continuous improvement in quality and customer service through operational excellence in our manufacturing plants and ASCs.”

PPG’s Application Support Centres supply Northrop Grumman with coatings, sealants and custom-packaged third-party chemicals. The Los Angeles centre in Valencia, Calif., supplies Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems facilities in Palmdale and El Segundo, Calif. The Atlanta centre in Kennesaw, Ga., supplies Northrop Grumman’s St. Augustine and Melbourne, Fla., facilities.

PPG’s Huntsville plant manufactures windshields, windows and specialty transparencies for Northrop Grumman facilities worldwide.

A longtime supplier to Northrop Grumman, PPG provides transparencies, coatings and sealants for the B-2 stealth bomber and E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft.

PPG Aerospace is the aerospace products and services business of PPG Industries. PPG Aerospace – PRC-DeSoto is the leading global producer and distributor of aerospace coatings, sealants, and packaging and application systems. PPG Aerospace – Transparencies is the world’s largest supplier of aircraft windshields, windows and canopies.
