SABIC opens new head office in Europe

The head office of SABIC Europe in Sittard was opened by HH Prince Saud bin Abdullah Ibn Thunayan Al-Saud (Chairman SABIC) and Joop Wijn (Minister of Economic Affairs of The Netherlands).

HH Prince Saud bin Abdullah Ibn Thunayan Al-Saud underlined the importance of the new Head office for SABIC, “This building with its unique techniques will be a tribute for the revitalization of energies and the incentive to unleash the creativities and capabilities and help enhance corporate achievements.”

During his speech HE Joop Wijn focussed on the already long lasting ties between Saudi Arabia and The Netherlands, especially since SABIC came to Europe, “The petrochemical industries clustered at the Chemelot complex are of great importance of the Dutch economy.” Furthermore he mentioned “Saudi Arabia is The Netherlands’ foremost trade partner in the Middle East. “

The mission of SABIC in Europe and in that respect the establishment of the new head office in Europe was especially underlined by Frans Noteborn, CEO of SABIC Europe, “SABIC Europe has a mission to grow. This challenge and the opportunity to design and built a new European head office created the unique possibility to optimize the European business and service organization, our working methods, our IT and communication technology and did challenge the people involved to become the owner and design of their future working environment and working methods. “
Other guests of honour were the CEO of SABIC, Mohamed Al-Mady, the Mayor of Sittard-Geleen, Jean Bronckers, the Governor of the province of Limburg Léon Frissen, the President of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly, René van der Linden, and the CEO of SABIC Europe, Frans Noteborn. In their speeches they underlined the relationship between Saudi-Arabia and The Netherlands and the importance of having SABIC Europe headquartered in Sittard-Geleen.
