RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: The Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) has shipped its first consignment of ethanolamines and ethoxylates from its manufacturing plant in Jubail, Saudi Kayan, making Saudi Arabia the first ever country in the Middle East to produce and market these advanced products. The first shipment has gone to customers in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region. Ultimately customers across the globe will be served.

“This pioneering effort will strengthen our position in the performance chemicals segment, while establishing a platform for competitiveness and growth of existing users of these materials in the region as well as entrants to many new industries that can be established with these value added products,” said Koos Van Haasteren, Executive Vice President, Performance Chemicals, Sabic.

“Thanks to the advanced facilities at Saudi Kayan, we hope to be a major supplier of solutions for customers in Saudi Arabia and the surrounding region. In time, we hope to become an important global supplier of specialties for production of detergents, personal care products, household and industrial cleaning agents, crop protection products, textile auxiliaries, cement processing chemicals, oilfield chemicals and more,” said Van Haasteren.
