The Newton Aycliffe site has well invested infrastructure and became part of INEOS post the acquisition of Hydro Polymers in 2008. A manufacturing site since the 1950s, operations for INOVYN and INEOS Enterprises Compounds Business today occupy roughly one third of the site with the rest open. The 160-acre site includes 4 Polymerisation plants, 4 Compounding halls, a power plant, laboratories, offices, warehouses as well as recreational land including a 9 hole golf course and a nature reserve. The site is accredited ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 for quality and environmental management.
INOVYN's operations at Newton Aycliffe are modern production plants which produce a range of PVC grades that are delivered by road to all parts of the UK & Eire, including being the UK's only manufacturer of Suspension PVC resin. With the overall plant capacity per year, it is highly likely that 1 in every 3 households in the UK will have PVC windows produced using material made at Newton Aycliffe.
