Univar, PVS Chloralkali announce new hydrochloric acid agreement

October 29/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Univar Solutions Inc. and PVS Chloralkali Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PVS Chemicals Inc. (PVS), have announced a new agreement where PVS will transfer railcars located in Ohio, Illinois and Virginia and sourcing agreements for Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) to Univar Solutions, according to Kemicalinfo.

This agreement further expands Univar Solutions large and robust network for its HCL business in North America, said Joe Serna, vice president, bulk chemical distribution for Univar Solutions.
Were very pleased to increase our sourcing capabilities and logistics infrastructure to enhance our presence as a top HCL provider benefitting customers throughout North America.

As part of the agreement Univar Solutions becomes a strategic provider of HCL for PVS, which is one of the largest managers of chlorides used in the production of finished steel throughout North America.

Univar Solutions network, supplier relationships, digital technology, technical expertise, and market knowledge help customers navigate dynamic market conditions and is expected to support this strategic alliance.
PVS remains active and growing throughout all of its products and markets. This agreement strengthens PVSs hydrochloric acid business by allowing the company to focus on where we maximize value for our customers, said David Nicholson, president and CEO of PVS Chemicals, Inc.

As MRC reported earlier, in March 2019, Nexeo Univar Inc., has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Nexeo Solutions, creating a leading global chemical and ingredients solutions provider. The combined company will conduct business as Univar Solutions, reflecting a commitment to combining the 'best of the best' from each legacy organization.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall PVC production totalled 718,500 tonnes in January-September 2020, down by 0.3% year on year. At the same time, only two producers managed to increase their PVC output.
