Vestolit, a 100% subsidiary of Mexichem acquired in 2014, announced that it will build a new production line with an annual capacity of 40,000 metric tons of Paste (Emulsion) PVC. The line will combine the established leading polymerization technology with a newly developed, energy efficient, drying technology. Furthermore, the facility in Marl, Germany, will become the largest single site for Emulsion PVC; it is already European's largest fully back integrated PVC site.
“We are pleased to support the continued growth and development of Vestolit, as part of our global strategy to expand our asset base and increase our focus on specialty products,” said Carlos Manrique, President of Mexichem Chlor-Vinyl. “This new production line reinforces Vestolit’s reputation as a provider of efficient technological solutions to an expanding customer base.”
