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.


In 2015, over 500,000 tons of PVC was recycled: an historic achievement. Last year the curtain also fell on the use of lead stabilizers in certain PVC. Both achievements are a direct result of VinylPlus, the voluntary sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry.

The Shin-Etsu football team are once again the proud winners of the RAS tournament: an annual tournament for company teams from the Shell Pernis business park, home to our PVC production plant. The men of Shin-Etsu are traditionally favourites to win the competition and this year was no exception. In their brand new strip they more than lived up to their formidable reputation, clinching victory in the final with a 1-0 win over Hexion.
