Sun Chemical acquired the metal deco ink business of PPG, a U.S.-based global supplier of paints, coatings and specialty materials. PPG and Sun Chemical are both long-standing players in the metal packaging industry.



Sun Chemical explains the acquisition reflects its strategy to grow by acquiring businesses that complement its existing operations. The company explains adding PPG will expand both its operational territories and its overall position in the global metal deco market. The purchase, according to Sun Chemical, creates the widest ink portfolio in the metal decoration market.

“With changes in consumer tastes and lifestyles across the world driving increased demand for canned food and beverages, brands are constantly seeking new ways of decorating the metal packaging of their products to differentiate them from the competition,” said Felipe Mellado, CMO and Board Member at Sun Chemical. “The acquisition of PPG’s metal deco ink business means that Sun Chemical will now be able to offer customers an enhanced range of metal deco solutions to help them achieve their marketing goals.”
