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.


Enormous wind-powered beasts made of PVC pipes wander across the beach, collecting sand at the waterline and tipping it out in the dunes. In this way, they are helping to preserve our coastline. Would you like to see for yourself how these beasts move across the beach? You will have a chance this summer, when the most recent beach beast created by Dutch artist, Theo Jansen, is released onto one of our beaches.

Do you fancy a sneak preview of what this particular beach beast looks like? Watch the video clip or visit http://strandbeest.com



At the last inspection for breaches of the Major Accidents (Risks) Decree (BRZO), both of our plants were given an entirely clean sheet. A fact we are proud of. In our industry, these inspections are considered to be particularly demanding. The government uses such inspections to check compliance with standards in the areas of environment, safety, working conditions and disaster response.
