PVC CONTAINER/STRATEGIC ALLIANCE IN PET BOTTLES

 PVC CONTAINER/STRATEGIC ALLIANCE IN PET BOTTLES
 EATONTOWN, N.J. May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- PVC Container Corporation


(NASDAQ: PVCC) announced today that it has formed a strategic alliance with Kantrail Plastics of Toronto for the manufacture of injection PET bottles for sale in the United States.
 Phillip L. Friedman, president and CEO of PVC Container said, "The strategic alliance with Kantrail will be beneficial for both companies, by capitalizing on each company's strengths. PVC Container Corporation has been in the extrusion blow molding business for more than 23 years serving a variety of bottle markets in the toiletry, cosmetic, household chemical and food product areas. Kantrail has been manufacturing a variety of PET containers in Canada already for several years. PVC Container brings its extensive marketing as well as mold and tooling technology, and Kantrail contributes its existing PET manufacturing capabilities and expertise in PET. The parties will share some common tooling in the future, and PVC Container will have exclusive marketing responsibility for bottles from Kantrail's operations for the U.S. market."
 Friedman added, "Our company's move to PET manufacturing and sales in no way reduces our commitment to the PVC bottle market. We remain strongly committed to the manufacture of extrusion blown bottles, and still believe that PVC bottles are very sound both from an economic point of view as well as an ecological and environmental perspective. We hope with the introduction of injection PET bottles utilizing the strategic manufacturing alliance with Kantrail, that we can offer our customer economically viable alternatives for clear plastic packaging in mid-range volume quantities."
 John D'Avella, executive vice president of PVC Container Corporation, added, "Our company intends to initially market a variety of stock PET containers including a 250 ML and 500 ML oval bottle, 12 ounce water bottle, a one liter water bottle, a 1-1/2 liter water bottle, and a 1 liter vegetable oil bottle. Additionally, several new stock tools are contemplated to be introduced in the very near future. The company will also seek custom injection blow molding business from its existing customer base."
 PVC Container Corporation, located in Eatontown, is a major producer of plastic containers for the packaging industry. Its wholly owned subsidiary Novatec Plastics & Chemicals Company Inc., is a leading supplier of PVC compounds and plastic alloys in the United States.
