Welcome to www.shintechla.com—
To help meet a growing product demand and build on our leading market position,
Shintech Inc. is constructing
a new manufacturing facility south of Plaquemine, Louisiana in Iberville
The proposed facility is located on a 1,725-acre site and will manufacture chlorine, caustic soda and vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). The Iberville Parish site was chosen as the best site because it provided adequate rail, highway and deepwater access and had an existing dock.
In addition to providing significant opportunities for local residents, the proposed facility is providing an economic boost to the state and Iberville and West Baton Rouge parishes by contributing tax revenue during both the construction phase of the project as well as once the facility begins to operate.
Shintech began construction of its new Plaquemine manufacturing facility
in October 2005. Construction is progressing, although the post-Katrina market
has presented its share of challenges. Taking into account some of these delays,
we are targeting 3rd quarter 2007 for construction to be complete. Please know
that we are appreciative of everyone's support during our progress.
