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.


Did you know that it is very easy to make a laptop stand from a PVC tube? The lengths of the pieces of tube that you need depend on the size of your laptop and the desired height. First, saw the tubes into pieces of the size you want. You can then paint the tube or cover it with coloured tape. In the example shown, the corners have been given a different colour. Finally, all that remains to do is to connect up the parts in the right order. If you are not sure that it is strong enough, you can also use glue.

Within the framework of the VinylPlus sustainable development programme, the PVC industry is working to reduce accidental releases of VCM during transport to zero over the next 10 years. In 2014, zero accidents were recorded for the fourth year in a row.
