PPG Commodity Chemicals Merger with Georgia Gulf Nears Completion

The previously announced merger of PPG Industries’ commodity chemicals business with Georgia Gulf Corp. is nearing completion, and the new company will change its name to Axiall Corp., according to a recent announcement by both companies.

“The new name is the result of more than five months of effort and creativity by a group of employees from both Georgia Gulf and PPG,” says Paul Carrico, president and chief executive officer. “The new and distinctive brand represents a clear break from the legacy names of the two businesses, and gives us the flexibility to enter new markets, make future acquisitions, and diversify our portfolio without the need to rebrand our organization.”

The companies announced the pending merger in July.
