Inflation Being Here to Stay Has PPG Preparing More Price Hikes(Bloomberg) -- PPG Industries Inc. is repeatedly raising prices of the paint and coatings it sells to customers across industries as inflation in raw material and logistics costs pressures the $40 billion business. PPG was first to raise prices once, then a second time, he said. “What we’re obviously studying now is the need to be out with a third set of price increases,” McGarry said. It’s feeling the pinch from the prices of oil, freight and distribution going up and raw materials running scarce. PPG plans to offer employees some flexibility, he said, with some expected to be in the office two or three days a week.
