EVC is Europe's leading PVC manufacturer and a global leader in VCM/PVC technology. We operate major integrated sites across Europe and in India and employ about 3 300 people.
Our activities include the manufacture of EDC, VCM, PVC resins, compounds and rigid films and the development and licensing of the technologies associated with the key manufacturing processes.
EVC was formed in October 1986 as a joint venture comprising the VCM and PVC resin and compounds businesses of Italy’s EniChem and England’s ICI which were, at that time, Western Europe’s second and fourth largest PVC producers respectively.
In March 2001, the INEOS Group acquired a majority shareholding in EVC.
Our Businesses and products
EVC’s activities are vertically integrated through most of the PVC manufacturing chain and include the manufacture of EDC (ethylene dichloride), VCM (vinyl chloride monomer), suspension PVC (S-PVC), emulsion PVC (E-PVC), compounds, and rigid and packaging films.

(EVC) announces that INEOS Vinyls Holdings Limited (INEOS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hawkslease Finance Company Limited made an offer to acquire 100% ownership of all EVC's business.

Pursuant to this transaction, approximately EUR 4.45 per EVC ordinary share will eventually be distributed to the shareholders of EVC.
