PPG renames Brown Brothers Distribution

PPG has announced that Brown Brothers Distribution is to be renamed ‘PPG Refinish Distribution’ to complete its ‘One Team’ integration.

Brown Brothers Distribution was founded over 130 years ago and has since grown to become one of the leading automotive refinish distributors in the UK. The company was purchased in 2008 by PPG.

Brown Brothers services the collision, commercial transport and light industrial industries with PPG’s market-leading coatings and sundries.

PPG has fully integrated Brown Brothers into its business and the renaming of Brown Brothers to PPG Refinish Distribution completes PPG Refinish UK & Ireland’s ‘One Team’ vision and completely aligns the business to PPG’s global vision of ‘One PPG’.

Mark Clarke, National Sales Manager, Refinish UK & Ireland commented, “The acquisition of our Brown Brothers Distribution business completed PPG’s full service portfolio and enabled us to offer end to end solutions for our customers.

“Since the acquisition of Brown Brothers we have been integrating it fully into the PPG family and the final piece of the puzzle is to rename it so that its seamless participation in our product and service proposition is complete.”
