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.


PVC is quite literally a sustainable product. A PVC pipe can easily last for 100 years, and PVC window frames have a service life of 30 years. Other plastics have a much shorter service life. Rigid PVC is extremely strong and ideal for recycling: it can be reused at least four times.
