Lifting Force Majeure for the supply of Caustic Soda and PVC products

15.07.2015

On May 22, 2015, VESTOLIT was forced to declare Force Majeure with respect to PVC and Caustic Soda after the BPRP ethylene cracker in Gelsenkirchen-Scholven (Germany) was damaged and the Ethylene feedstock supply was limited substantially.

On May 22, 2015, VESTOLIT was forced to declare Force Majeure with respect to PVC and Caustic Soda after the BPRP ethylene cracker in Gelsenkirchen-Scholven (Germany) was damaged and the Ethylene feedstock supply was limited substantially.

The repair of the cracker took longer than initially expected, but meanwhile BPRP has returned to a normal supply of Ethylene and lifted its Force Majeure declaration accordingly.

We have simultaneously restarted our production units over the last days and are now in a position to lift our Force Majeure with immediate effect. We will still need some time to return to a situation of normal product availability, but are confident to achieve this in due course.

We again apologize for any inconvenience caused to your company and we would like to thank you for your loyalty and understanding during the last weeks.
