|Our Operations - Baton Rouge, Louisiana|
Our Baton Rouge site is ideally accessible to all major modes of transportation. Located in Baton Rouge near an interstate highway and major railroad, it operates one of the northern-most docking facilities on the Mississippi, allowing our products to be exported worldwide. The site produces its own feedstock materials, electricity and steam.
PVC production has been expanded twice, increasing production significantly with very little capital investment. The site's VCM unit is also being expanded and upgraded to meet the increasing demand for the company's products and their related intermediate raw materials.
In 2007, the site achieved the safety milestone of one million man-hours without a lost-time injury. Click here to view a video of the recognition ceremony. The site achieved its two million man-hours milestone in 2009.
