Vila-seca II

The first PVC production factory in Spain

An integrated production chain

The Vila-seca II (Tarragona) factory is the leading PVC producer in Spain, with a capacity of 200,000 t/year. The production process of the EDC/VCM/PVC chain starts with chlorine, which is supplied by Ercros' Vila-seca I factory. The location of the center and the logistics facilities available allow the reception of external EDC and VCM for the manufacture of PVC.

The activity of the Ercros plastics factories is integrated: thus, the PVC resin produced in Vila-seca II is supplied to the composites center located in Monzón.

The factory has a workforce of around 160 people. This centre, together with those of Tarragona and Vila-seca I, form the Tarragona industrial complex, which is also integrated in the chlorine derivatives division of Ercros.
