Chemplast Sanmar, the largest manufacturer of Specialty Paste PVC resin India, via its wholly owned subsidiary - Chemplast Cuddalore Vinyls Ltd (CCVL) is the second largest manufacturer of Suspension PVC (S-PVC) in India. It has four manufacturing facilities (all in South India) with a high degree of backward integration.

We visited the company’s Mettur facility, wherein it manufactures Refrigerant gases, Specialty Paste PVC Resin, Caustic Soda, Chlorinated Solvents, and Hydrogen Peroxide. Below are the key takeaways:
