If you want to gauge the most innovative companies in Pittsburgh, just follow the patents.
At the top of the list of prolific patent recipients you’ll find PPG, the premiere manufacturer of paints, coatings and specialty materials based in Pittsburgh with operations in more than 70 countries.
PPG’s solutions involve some of the most cutting-edge technology industries.
They include high-performance coatings that make autonomous cars more visible to sensors; help new-energy vehicles operate more efficiently; and allow wind turbines blades to cut through air with practically no drag thanks to an innovation based on eggplant biology.
It’s little wonder PPG has earned a spot on Fortune’s “Most Admired” companies list 10 years in a row, and GrayMatter is grateful to have played a role in that.
