For the third consecutive year, Vynova was named best PVC producer at the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe. The prestigious awards are voted for by customers and the recognition confirms Vynova’s performance as an outstanding supplier to the PVC industry.
In total, the annual Best Polymer Producers Awards reward ten winners. One company is crowned for each of the nine polymer categories: PVC, HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PET, PP, PS & EPS, ABS and EVA. In addition to the awards per polymer type, an overall winner is rewarded based on the ratings for all polymer types combined. This year, the criterion for the overall award was Circularity.“We are delighted that our customers have recognised our commitment and contribution to the vinyls value chain for the third year in a row. This award is a clear recognition that our customers value our on-going efforts to be a reliable and service-orientated partner to the PVC industry and we would like to thank them for their continued trust and support”, commented Jonathan Stewart, Vynova Vice President PVC Business Management.
In addition to winning first place in the PVC producer category, Vynova ended second in the ranking for the overall award on Circularity. “We are pleased that our efforts to foster a more circular PVC value chain – such as the recent launch of our bio-attributed PVC portfolio – are also acknowledged by our customers. We are determined to continue on this path to enable our customers to innovate their PVC products and support their sustainability goals”, mentioned Vynova President Stefan Sommer.
The winners of the Best Polymer Producers Awards are selected on the basis of a European-wide customer satisfaction survey conducted by the Polymers for Europe Alliance. Over a period of several months, plastics converting companies from across Europe rated their suppliers’ performances via a confidential online voting system. The polymer suppliers were evaluated on five key criteria: Polymer Quality, Circularity, Delivery Reliability, Communication and Innovation.
