Juffali PolyOne inaugurates Saudi Arabian specialty polymer colourants plant
Built in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the plant will help Middle East customers to innovate and grow via local access to products.
PolyOne chairman, president and chief executive officer Stephen Newlin said the opening of the new production facility in Jeddah solidifies the company's ability to bring enhanced value and improved collaboration for current and future customers.
"This is yet another great example of our 'invest to grow' strategy, which has proven to add value for our customers, shareholders and associates," Newlin added.
E.A. Juffali & Brothers chairman Walid Juffali said: "Launching this new facility is a tremendous accomplishment, and our customers in the region will benefit greatly from our efforts."
The company said the new facility also has the potential for expansion into other product lines in its future phases.
As the joint venture of PolyOne and E.A. Juffali & Brothers, Juffali PolyOne combines Juffali's local expertise in the region and PolyOne's potential for providing formulation technology and material science.
