PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) today announced that it has reached an agreement with PVS Technologies (PVS) regarding the construction of a PVS facility at PPG’s Natrium, W.Va., chlor-alkali and derivatives plant, where PVS will manufacture iron salts. The new plant is expected to begin operation in late 2010. Financial terms were not disclosed.

As part of the agreement, PVS will construct and operate the new plant, with a capacity to produce 50,000 tons of iron salts annually, including ferric chloride. PPG will supply chlorine, other raw materials and services from its Natrium plant to PVS for the new facility.

“This is another example of PPG’s commitment to and investment in the Natrium facility and our chlor-alkali and derivatives customers,” said Michael H. McGarry, PPG senior vice president, Commodity Chemicals. “We have secured a long-term chlorine customer in our own backyard, and we are pleased to welcome PVS to our Natrium site. We look forward to a successful collaboration.”

Dennis Rutkowski, president of PVS Technologies, said, “Our new facility at Natrium will significantly expand PVS’s total production capacity, as well our geographic reach and ability to serve new and existing customers in the United States.”

Commenting on the announcement, West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin said, "We welcome this new investment to Marshall County. New investments on available sites at chemical facilities, such as this, really help secure existing jobs and lay the foundation to expand industries and create new jobs. I applaud this joint partnership between PPG and PVS, and I am confident that this collaboration will benefit this region and our state."

Located on the Ohio River near New Martinsville, W.Va., PPG’s Natrium plant produces chlorine, muriatic acid, calcium hypochlorite, and liquid and dry caustic soda. These products are used in many applications such as purifying drinking water and manufacturing pharmaceuticals that help to improve the quality of life. The plant employs about 525 people and has been in operation since 1943.
