KEM ONE increases PVC emulsion capacity

LYON, FRANCE: KEM ONE announced 7,000 tonne per year PVC emulsion capacity extension. When this production capacity increase becomes fully operational in 2013, KEM ONE will have 112,000 tonne overall annual production capacities for PVC emulsion at its two sites of Saint-Auban, France and Hernani, Spain. An additional investment was realised for overhauling the packaging facilities to meet the needs of our customers. The flexibility of our bulk deliveries has been significantly increased.

“By increasing PVC emulsion production capacity to 42,000 tonne per year at Hernani’s site, we will be able to partner our customers in new developments, while also continuing to assist them with current projects. Meanwhile, this investment will enable us to strengthen our positions in Europe and consolidate our presence in emerging countries,” stated Bertrand Jausseme, Marketing and Sales Director, KEM ONE.
