Despite global economic turmoil, SABIC had another booming year to report: around US$50 billion in sales of polyethylene, polypropylene and advanced thermoplastics, glycols, methanol, fertilizers and steel.
INGENUITY + ACHIEVEMENT
SABIC’s metals business has always focused on helping our customers achieve their ambitions. We have a history of doing things people said couldn’t be done thanks to the ingenuity of our people and the quality of our steel.
Our contribution to the modernization of the Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina shows the scale of our achievements. We produced and delivered long steel bars beyond standard thickness and diameter. We even re-scaled our entire production lines to make it possible, rising to our customers’ most difficult challenges.
SABIC is one of the largest manufacturers of steel in the Middle East and Africa region. We lead the way in manufacturing high-quality metals, and have played a vital role in the construction and industrialization of some of the world’s fastest-growing economies. Some of the most distinctive and technologically advanced buildings in the world, such as the Burj Al-Arab hotel in Dubai and Chek Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong, have been built with SABIC steel.
