TOKYO, JAPAN: Asahi Glass Co (AGC) will increase the production capacity of the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) facility at Phu My Plastics & Chemicals Co., Ltd. (PMPC), AGC’s subsidiary engaged in PVC business in Vietnam. In order to respond to the growing PVC demand in the country, PMPC’s PVC production capacity will be increased by 50 per cent to 150,000 tonne from the current 100,000 tonne per year, which will make the AGC Group’s total PVC production in Southeast Asia 700,000 tonne per year. The operation is scheduled to commence at the beginning of 2016.

After the completion of the capacity enhancement, PMPC will have P.T. Asahimas Chemical (ASC) as its main VCM supplier. ASC is one of AGC’s subsidiaries in Indonesia and currently working to enhance its production capacity.

Under the new management policy AGC plus, the AGC Group is focusing on the

chlor-alkali business in Southeast Asia. Through collaboration among AGC group companies, the AGC Group will strengthen its integrated production structure within the region, thereby enhancing competitiveness and increasing the market share in Southeast Asia.
