Nature of Operations

Also with the objective of ensuring availability of raw materials, Vinythai holds a minority shareholding in PSC.
In addition to chlorine, which is utilized in downstream production processes, the Company's Chlor-Alkali plant produces significant quantities of Caustic Soda as well as Hydrogen and Sodium Hypochlorite. These products are sold in the domestic market.
The Company's facilities are also equipped to import EDC and VCM as the need arises.
