Mercedes-Benz Approves PPG Brands for All Repairs

Daimler AG, manufacturer of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, has approved PPG’s Global Refinish System, including its Envirobase High Performance waterborne basecoat, for repair in North America of all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. In addition, PPG’s Delfleet commercial coatings system has been approved for repair of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles. The approvals were based on the results of a four-day audit conducted by Mercedes-Benz representatives at PPG facilities in the United States and Germany.

PPG locations visited by Daimler AG included the PPG corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pa., the production facilities and training center located in Delaware, Ohio, and the PPG European Technical Center in Ingersheim, Germany.

“We are, of course, very pleased to be recognized by Daimler AG in this manner and to continue our partnership with them,” said Kevin Loop, PPG business development manager. “The audit, known as the Quality Management System Alignment, was extremely thorough and informative. There’s no better confirmation of quality than being approved by a premium manufacturer like Mercedes-Benz. Their choosing PPG as a paint partner is something we can be very proud of.”

The Daimler AG audit covered several elements:

• Quality planning
• Quality of supplied parts and materials
• System/process quality
• Quality product/process
• Failure management
