PPG workers express concern about their futures


“It’s employees — it’s jobs for the area,” said Charlie Anderson, president of the Meadville-Western Crawford County Chamber of Commerce. “The plant has a great reputation overall as a good facility with outstanding employees. We’re hoping for the best.”

Mark Turner, executive director of the Economic Progress Alliance of Crawford County, an economic development agency, said his agency will do what it can to assist the new owners.

“We’ll communicate with them (Platinum Equity) and hope it continues to operate,” he said.

PPG built the Crawford County plant in 1968 and has operated it ever since.
