Jubail, Saudi Arabia -- Sadara Chemical Company has agreed to supply EA Juffali & Brothers - a Saudi-based systems house and chemical distributor - with methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) to its new facility in PlasChem Park in Jubail Industrial City II.
Mohammad Alazzaz, director of Value Park at Sadara, said the area “will benefit from locally supplied MDI for the first time ever in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East”.
He added the project will meet local demand for polyurethanes in construction, furniture, special flooring for sports facilities and electrical appliances.
"Our products will enable important applications in a number of key industries such as oil and gas chemicals, construction materials, auto components, to name just a few. We welcome Juffali to be among the first tenants to benefit from Sadara’s products and services available in PlasChem Park,” Alazzaz said.
The new facility is expected to come on stream in the first half of 2017.
Saudi based Juffali, established in 1946, serves the chemical, automotive, technology, construction, equipment, services, air conditioning and refrigeration markets.
Previously, and as reported at UTECH-polyurethane.com, Juffali partnered with Dow to create facilities in its region.
