PPG’s name adorns the AZA member aquarium in Pittsburgh-- the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium-- part of a multi-year title sponsorship and a corporate commitment to the PPG Conservation and Sustainability Fund. All other AZA member zoos, aquariums and related facilities now can lower cost through a cooperative purchasing program with PPG, a global manufacturer of paints, coatings and other architectural products.
The AZA agreement with PPG provides discounted pricing on paints and coatings products. A team of AZA facilities managers from representative zoos and aquariums selected a comprehensive list of PPG products to meet environmental standards requested by AZA members and to offer paint and coatings solutions that address issues unique to our industry.
Contact PPG’s national AZA representative, Marty Greenwell, who will connect you to your local PPG rep. PPG representatives will meet with your zoo or aquarium facilities manager to present the details of the program and share the discounted pricing you can compare with your present paint suppler.
Going beyond your zoo or aquarium needs
PPG offers another unique discount program called Paint It Forward. Through this program, all zoo and aquarium employees as well as those paying annual memberships to your zoo or aquarium may access savings for personal purchases at more than 400 PPG or Porter Paints retail stores nationwide.
