BANGKOK , July 1, 2010 (press release) – Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited ("IVL") has acquired the Italian PET and PTA producer Ottana Polimeri S.R.L. from Equipolymers Europe, a joint venture between Dow Chemical Company and Petroleum Industries Company of Kuwait. The deal provides IVL access to the Mediterranean region, including markets in Southern Europe and North Africa. The acquisition was made through a 50:50 joint venture between IVL's European subsidiary IVL Belgium N.V. and PCH Holding S.R.L. ("PCH") of Italy.

The 192,000 tonnes per annum PTA plant and the 150,000 tonnes per annum PET plant is situated on the island of Sardinia, Italy, offering the company the strategic ability to serve Southern Europe with the shortest transportation route possible.
