German PVC producer Vinnolit (Ismaning; www.westlakevinnolit.com) has been renamed Westlake Vinnolit as of 16 May 2022. The change reflects a move by US parent Westlake (Houston, Texas; www.westlake.com) to standardise the brand identity of the entire corporate group.

Vinnolit is now part of the newly created international Performance & Essential Materials business unit. Westlake said all of the PVC maker’s European sales companies and representative offices will successively adopt the new name.

The company’s established PVC products are to continue to be branded as Vinnolit, and the GreenVin brand designating “particularly sustainable” products is said to have been retained.

The US petrochemicals and plastics group acquired Vinnolit in August 2014 (see Plasteurope.com of 01.08.2014). Other Westlake operations in Europe include Westlake Epoxy (Rotterdam, The Netherlands; www.westlakeepoxy.com), which also has production facilities in Germany and Spain, and Westlake Global Compounds (Reims, France; www.westlakeglobalcompounds.com), with operations in Germany, Italy, and Spain.
