Egypt’s EPC shuts PVC plant again on feedstock shortage

According to a source from one of Egypt’s PVC producers, EPC, the producer halted production at its plant due to a feedstock shortage while the plant is scheduled to resume operations as of next Wednesday.

The source also added, “We won’t reveal our mid-month prices until the plant starts running again. We may issue increases on our mid-month offers given the tight supply levels in the local market and the high prices.”

EPC introduced increases of EGP500/ton ($56/ton) on their PVC k67-68 and k70 prices for the first half of October. The producer currently offers at EGP10700/ton ($1205/ton) for k67-68 and at EGP10850/ton ($1222/ton) for k70 on ex-Alexandria, cash excluding VAT basis.
