PSG Celebrates 50 Years in Business

Member company, PSG, is celebrating being in business for half a century.

Established in 1970, PSG is a global supplier of coatings, chemicals, adhesives and composite materials to the aerospace and defence industry. The company was started by the Wood brothers from a single office in Godalming, Surrey, distributing industrial coatings in the south of England. In 1973 PSG moved to Haslemere and having gained Ministry of Defence approval began to focus on the aerospace and defence coatings markets. The ‘80s and ‘90s saw PSG successfully expand into Europe’s largest distributor of specialist coatings, offering a high level of service and technical support, supported by the world’s leading coatings manufacturers. In 2016 the company moved from its home in Haslemere to a purpose-built facility in Bordon, Hampshire, where it consolidated its offices, warehousing and production.

In 2019 PSG was acquired by ADDEV Materials an international company employing over 700 staff in 25 locations across the globe with its headquarters based in Lyon, France. ADDEV Materials Aerospace & Defence Group specialises in the custom packaging and distribution of chemicals, adhesives, tapes and technical films to the aerospace industry.

Today PSG is proud to be a partner of choice of world-class manufacturers such as PPG Aerospace, Sherwin-Williams, Mapaero, Henkel, ZipChem, 3M Aerospace, Gurit, Aeroform, Mader to mention a few. PSG’s broad product portfolio includes a comprehensive range of coatings, composite products, chemicals and associated materials with a truly global reach.

Whilst the company has grown considerably since its humble beginnings, PSG prides itself on being loyal to the original strong principles of its founders whilst embracing the values of its new owners, placing great importance on service to its customers. PSG has built a solid reputation for excellent customer service and a high- level of technical expertise.

PSG would like to thank all of its clients, supply partners and employees for making the past 50 years a success and look forward to meeting the challenges of the next half century.
