PPG Commercial Coatings has been named the “Official Paint of the American Truck Historical Society.” The not-for-profit ATHS was incorporated in 1971 to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry and its pioneers. Shortly afterward, the American Trucking Associations officially recognized the ATHS as the “duly authorized organization to record and develop trucking industry historical data.”
“We are very pleased to name PPG as the official paint of the American Truck Historical Society,” says Bill Johnson, ATHS managing director. “Members of the society that are restoring trucks will benefit greatly from this relationship by being able to access the resources and knowledge available from PPG.”
“Our affiliation with the ATHS is a natural,” says John Lewis, product manager for PPG Commercial Coatings. “PPG has been supplying innovative paint and coatings to original equipment manufacturers, refinishers and restorers of not only trucks, but buses, rail, emergency vehicles, aircraft and other commercial vehicles for many, many years.
“Not only are PPG Commercial Coatings the choice among manufacturers and restorers of commercial vehicles in terms of quality, durability, color match and productivity, our paint systems offer additives that provide protection against graffiti, fuels, humidity, solvents and detergents,” Lewis says. “We look forward to seeing what ATHS members can do with our huge selection of colors and coatings systems.”
