ABOUT VYNOVA WILHELMSHAVEN

Vynova Wilhelmshaven features one of Europe’s largest plants for the production of suspension PVC (S-PVC), a high-quality material that our customers convert into a wide range of products for daily life. In addition, we produce vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), an essential building block to make PVC.

Situated on the western side of the Jade Bight, a bay of the North Sea, the Wilhelmshaven site has direct access to Germany's only deep-water port. The site boasts excellent infrastructure for the import and export of ethylene dichloride (EDC), ethylene and VCM by ship. Wilhelmshaven receives, for example, EDC shipments from the Vynova sites in Runcorn (UK) and Tessenderlo (Belgium).

With more than 360 employees, Vynova Wilhelmshaven features among the most prominent employers in the region. Although Vynova itself is a young company, the history of the Wilhelmshaven site dates back more than 35 years. Discover the most important milestones in our history further down this page.

As a responsible manufacturer, Vynova Wilhelmshaven is certified for the ISO 9001 quality management standards, the ISO 14001 standards for environmental management and the ISO 50001 energy management system standards.
