November 2019 / Great enthusiasm for Shin-Etsu at the open day at the STC

On Friday, November 15, the Shipping, Transport College in Brielle held an open day for the students of secondary education, who have to choose a follow-up study. Shin-Etsu was present to make (possible) future colleagues enthusiastic about the world of chemistry and of course in particular Shin-Etsu. The STC MBO college offers various courses aimed at a job in the process industry. Shin-Etsu has twenty trainees working every year. Students get all support they need to further develop themselves and get the most out of their internship. Who does his best during his internship, can move on to a permanent position.

October 2019 / Vinyl on its way to outsell CD

PVC has many useful and fun applications, but one of the nicest is the vinyl gramophone record. And it is completely back. Research has even shown that vinyl sales will soon yield more money than CD sales.
