PPG Refinish launches new MVP Business Solutions website

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – September 21, 2009 – PPG Refinish has launched its new MVP Business Solutions website. The site can be accessed directly at www.ppgmvp.com. The new site is tailored to the needs of PPG’s collision center customers and devoted exclusively to MVP training, tools and services.

“We are excited about having a website wholly dedicated to our business solutions offerings,” said Jim Berkey, director, MVP Business Solutions. “We have a strong leadership position in the collision repair industry with our MVP programs and want to make information more easily available for our customers. With the new website, they now have 24/7/365 access to our programs and services.”

The interactive site incorporates state-of-the-art technology, is highly graphic and emphasizes a contemporary, user-friendly design.

“We wanted to make this site attractive and appealing. After all, we want people to use it and enjoy their experience, so we did our best to make it easy,” added Norm Angrove, senior manager, PPG Value Added Programs. “This site is loaded with the timely and critical information our customers want. Navigation is clear and intuitive. Customers can find out about our MVP offerings and quickly get up-to-the-minute information about training, conferences and services. For example, one of the website’s key areas is Training Solutions which encompasses four sub-sections: Throughput Performance, Leadership, Business Fundamentals and ParaKaizen – all valuable tools for business success. I encourage everyone interested in our MVP programs to visit www.ppgmvp.com and learn more.”

Visitors to the site can quickly see where training courses and other events are being offered across North America, and can register online for these events.

The new site represents the first phase of PPG’s MVP website development. Even broader access to information, people and business solutions is coming in the next stage.
