PPC SAS joins Vynova Group


Today (01 July 2019), Potasse et Produits Chimiques SAS has joined Vynova Group. The company, based in Thann (France), has been renamed Vynova PPC SAS.

The site, located in eastern France, employs 235 workers and was formally of the WeylChem Group of Companies. Vynova and WeylChem are both owned by the International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG, a Euro Chlor member company).

"Integrating the Thann site as part of Vynova will enable us to add another successful chapter to the site’s rich history, which dates back more than 200 years", noted Luc Leunis, Vynova’s Executive Vice President Monomers Operations and President of Vynova PPC.

The Thann site produces chlorine and liquid potassium hydroxide (KOH) and other potassium derivatives such as liquid and solid potassium carbonate (K2CO3) and solid KOH in various forms and concentrations.

The integration of Vynova PPC increases the number of Vynova sites to six. There are Vynova manufacturing plants in Tessenderlo (Belgium), Wilhelmshaven (Germany), Mazingarbe (France), Beek (the Netherlands), Runcorn (UK) and Thann (France). The Vynova Group now employs 1,500 people across the continent.
