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.


Shin-Etsu became third in the category PVC Producers of the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe. We achieved an overall score of 78.91 percent.

The Polymer Producer Awards is an initiative of Polymer Comply Europe, a service provider that assists the plastics industry in EU legislation. For the third year in a row, they asked customers of polymer manufacturers to express their appreciation on five criteria: delivery reliability, quality, regulatory compliance & technical service, communication, and innovation.

The Polymer Producers Awards cover eight categories, including the category PVC producers. In that category Shin-Etsu became third. The awards were presented in Milan on Thursday 24 May.

In the Netherlands schoolexams are starting this week. Shin-Etsu wishes all students a lot of success and in particular the chemistry candidates.
