Founded in 1954, Formosa Plastics Corporation was the smallest PVC plant in the world and its plant produced only 4 MT/day of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin. With over 50 years of development and efforts in breaking through the bottlenecks, the Formosa Plastics Group (FPG) has been one of the largest PVC resin manufacturers around the world, leading to the prosperous development of the local petrochemical industry and contributing significantly to the economic development of Taiwan. To document the growth and history of FPG as well as to archive relevant artifacts that reveal the essence of FPG corporate culture, the Formosa Plastics Group Museum was established in 2004 as the information center for FPG sustainable development and inheritance of corporate culture. Simultaneously, the museum invites the general public to gain an understanding of the FPG development and therefore realize the connotation of Taiwan's economic development over the past 50 years.
