Case Study Detail
Language: English


 PPG Industries, Ltd.

Established in 1883, PPG Industries manufactures protective and decorative coatings, sealants, adhesives, metal pretreatment products, flat glass, fabricated glass, continuous-strand fiberglass products, and industrial and specialty chemicals–including photochromic ophthalmic lenses, optical monomers, silicas and fine chemicals.

PPG Industries services tens of thousands of body shops and refinishers through distributors in over 100 countries, repairing 30 million cars per year. PPG needed a system to address key supply chain issues, including lack of visibility throughout the supply chain, with each country being operated individually, and each manufacturing plant operated independently; poor customer service for export markets; long lead times; and high inventory of the wrong products.

With Logility Voyager Solutions™, PPG Industries achieved a 20% reduction in inventory, and improved product availability to 98% in the UK, and between 85 and 100% in other parts of Europe. "Most significantly for our business, lead times were reduced by 50%, and for the first time we were able to give our suppliers advanced information of their exact requirements," said Melanie Godfrey, supply chain manager at PPG Industries.
