Shintech Louisiana, LLC

Since before startup of the first Shintech Louisiana plant in 2000, the company has been actively involved in organizations, sponsorships, leadership development, and civic activities that further the development and success of the communities in which we live and work.

Several Shintech employees and contractors returned to "Safety Town" for the ninth year in a row. "Safety Town" is a safety program designed for kindergartners to help educate them in the proper way to cross streets, ride bikes, handle emergencies (such as home fires) and other safety related issues.
Furthermore, for the past seven years, the employees of Shintech Louisiana, LLC, SE Tylose LA, LLC and many of the plant contractors have collected toys during the Christmas holidays to benefit Children's Hospital in Baton Rouge. A group representing Shintech and SE Tylose employees and contractors has made the annual delivery of toys to the hospital. The hospital playroom is a special place for children to relax, socialize and enjoy an array of fun and educational activities. With Shintech and SE Tylose's help, the playroom is now stocked with enough games, toys, and electronic equipment for children of all ages to enjoy.

Shintech Louisiana, LLCCommunity involvement is important to the longterm success of Shintech. It benefits the long-term well-being of our employees, our families, our friends and those who will both join us and succeed us as we continue to grow.
