One very interesting story about the area starts in Itally and the immigration of Vassallo Fiorimonte in 1898. He came and made is home in Ponce opening a metal shop. His interest in polyvinyl Chorlide, or what is popularly known as PVC, would turn his business into an enterprise reaching around the world. His focus was the use of PVC in construction materials. It was lighter then lead, easy to handle and quick to place and seal or bind. So when you visit Home Depot or your local hardware store, you now know PVC all started in Coto Laurel! Now adays Vassallo Industries or Industrias Vassallo produces polyvinyl chloride, polyethylene and polypropylene products. This is the stuff they make water pipes in your home out of, Kayaks you float in, fresh water tanks for people and farm animals. secutity barriers and this flower pots that look like clay.
