Anyone Know a Paint Shop Around Here?

Portland International is home to a paint facility owned by Boeing and operated under contract to them.  It provides additional paint capacity for their jets assembled up in the Seattle area.  One of the jets landed at Portland while I was there for the ANG open house.  It was a 777 freighter.  It landed on the runway closest to us and turned on to the taxiway just in front of where we were standing.  It then taxied back to the opposite end of the field where the paint facility is located.  The only clue as to what airline it was destined for was the rudder which had a small element of the future colors.  My guess is Qatar but I’m sure someone can put me straight if that is wrong.
