Shin-Etsu Group Original Calendar 2019
Alongside the richness of nature
Shintech, a US subsidiary of Shin-Etsu Chemical, has continued to lead the Shin-Etsu Group with exceptional performance growth since its foundation in 1974. In 2018, Shintech completed the construction of a new ethylene plant in Plaquemine, Louisiana. This marks the first time a Japanese company has constructed an ethylene plant in the United States. Ethylene is one of the main raw materials of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and the new plant further strengthens Shintech’s integrated production system from raw materials. As the world’s largest PVC manufacturer, Shintech is responding to global demand for PVC, which will continue to grow in the years to come.
In commemoration of Shintech’s new plant, this calendar features scenery from Texas and Louisiana, where Shintech has facilities, as well as Arizona, California, Ohio and Washington, where the Shin-Etsu Group has further bases. Please enjoy the magnificent landscapes and rich seasonal colors of the United States featured here.
