The labeling solutions are seen in health care, hospitals, chemicals, supply chain, food and beverage, agriculture, electronics and many others.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, PPG’s focus has been to keep our people safe while meeting its customers’ needs.

"We continuously strive to partner with our customers to create mutual value and help them succeed," the company states. "The last few months have given us a greater opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to 'protecting and beautifying the world,' as 'protect' is taking on more significance to all of us – protecting our people, our customers and our communities.

"We value the opportunity to work with you, as we understand the essential role our products play in a wide range of important industries," the company adds. "We are honored and proud to partner with you to create the products that people count on."

The PPG Teslin label and packaging solutions are being used for life-critical products in health care, hospitals, chemicals, supply chain, food and beverage, agriculture, electronics and many others. All of PPG’s specialty coatings and materials facilities that support Teslin label and packaging solutions remain open and operating, in light of the measures taken by governments to curb the spread of the virus.

The pandemic has affected the way the industry supply chain operates, and PPG has responded to these unpredictable market conditions by:
  • Working to maintain levels of inventory and production where customer demand exists
  • Adjusting manufacturing output to adapt to the industry situation
  • Continually monitoring the market and maintaining close contact with customers and suppliers to ensure that it can be ready to ramp up production when demand improves.
For essential personnel working in PPG's production, R&D and laboratory environments, the company is employing site-specific health and safety measures, such as split shifts, social distancing and other tools, which have been used successfully at PPG locations around the world to keep PPG's people safe. At all sites, employees that do not need to be physically present at a work location in order to perform the essential tasks of their jobs have been directed to work remotely.

"While the health and safety of our employees, customers and stakeholders remains the highest priority and a core value for PPG," the company says. "We also recognize the COVID-19 pandemic is significantly affecting the global economy. We remain focused on the present but also have one eye on a sustainable future when we get to 'business as usual.'"
