With a production capacity of more than 3 million tonnes, Shin-Etsu can without doubt regard itself as the world's largest PVC manufacturer. Production in the Netherlands takes place at two plants near Rotterdam: Botlek and Pernis. The commercial heart of the company is in Hilversum. Our customers use our PVC to make pipeline systems, window frames, flooring, cables and many other types of products.


The Dutch chemical industry increasingly views sustainability as a necessity. Shin-Etsu is doing its bit by providing data for the Dutch chemical industry’s first sustainability report. You can find this at the Association of the Dutch Chemical Industry (VNCI) website.

Spinning for Sophia is an annual fundraising campaign that supports targeted research by Rotterdam’s Sophia Children's Hospital. This year, a total of € 212,372 was collected for research into congenital obesity. In February, the Shin-Etsu Spinning Team (who is a regular participant in this event) completed three hours of spinning for this campaign.



Experience the challenge of running a company that produces PVC sustainably and make a profit at the same time.
