Vinnolit Announces that Managing Director Dr Ralph Ottlinger will Retire Effective May 3, 2015




Dr Ottlinger has been with Vinnolit since its founding in 1993. In the last ten years as Managing Director, he has set the course for many important developments in the company including the conversion of the electrolysis units in Gendorf and Knapsack to the environmentally friendly membrane process, which was the largest investment in the history of Vinnolit. Also, together with Dr Josef Ertl, he led the strategic effort to grow the Paste PVC business and expanded Vinnolit’s global market and technology leadership in specialty PVC.

"We would like to thank Dr Ottlinger for his years of service and his many contributions to the growth and success of Vinnolit. During his tenure, he has helped to shape and build Vinnolit into the company that we know today. We will miss him, and we extend to him our best wishes," stated Albert Chao, President and CEO of Vinnolit´s parent company Westlake Chemical.
