Warsaw, Asharq Al-Awsat- SABIC-Europe is to further expand its polymer supply network in Central Eastern Europe by opening a logistic hub in Poland.
A contract was signed recently with Nijhof Wassink to provide the logistic services.
The expansion of the distribution network is an integral part of the strategy of SABIC-Europe to grow in Central Eastern Europe.
The major warehouse operation for polymers imported from Saudi Arabia will be established in Kutno, Poland.
Hubert Guth, Director SABIC’s sales offices in Europe said: “The overall, strategic ambition of SABIC-Europe is growth. The best market to realize this growth at this moment is in Central and Eastern Europe. To achieve this goal, you need a sales and distribution network in this region. In May, we already opened a sales office in Hungary and now we’re opening a logistic hub in Poland. They will both serve as a platform for growth in the CEE region.” The hub is expected to be operational from January 1, 2007.
