LJF is a supplier of sealants and adhesives products for the aerospace and automotive industries and has been a long-term licensee of PPG’s aerospace sealant technology.

LJF’s aerospace and automotive sealants businesses would be spun-off to form a new, separate entity, of which PPG would be the majority owner. PPG anticipates closing the transaction in the second half of 2015, following completion of the French works council consultation process, receipt of regulatory approvals and satisfaction of other customary closing conditions. Financial terms were not disclosed.

LJF is headquartered in France and is part of the Hutchinson Group, a world leader in sealing systems, vibration, acoustic and thermal insulation, fluid transfer systems, transmission and mobility. LJF’s aerospace and automotive sealants businesses employ more than 200 people, and the new entity would continue operations in Bezons, France, at the facility where these businesses are currently based.

“This venture is a natural progression for the two companies, as LJF has been a licensee of PPG technology for more than 60 years. This would allow us to serve our aerospace and automotive customers with greater geographic reach and with a wider array of automotive products,” said Michael McGarry, PPG chief operating officer.
