Arlanxeo Opens New Headquarters in Maastricht
Arlanxeo Holding B.V. officially opened its new corporate headquarters in the Netherlands. From now on, one of the global leading companies for synthetic rubber will control its operations around the world from Maastricht. The new group headquarters ‘De Colonel’ in the heart of Maastricht will house central leadership functions as well as the management team.
“After the launch at the beginning of April, the opening of our headquarters is the next step toward establishing Arlanxeo,” said Jan Paul de Vries, Chairman of the Arlanxeo Executive Board at the opening ceremony. “In Maastricht, we have found the perfect international location that is also in the immediate vicinity of our company’s key European production sites. It offers outstanding conditions for Arlanxeo to strengthen its position as the key player in the global synthetic rubber market.”
Arlanxeo was established on April 1, 2016, as a joint venture of LanxessAG, Cologne, Germany, and Saudi Aramco, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The two partners each hold a 50-percent interest in the joint venture. The Arlanxeo management is drawn evenly from both partner companies. Alongside Jan Paul de Vries as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jorge Nogueira also moved from Lanxess to the Arlanxeo management team. Saudi Aramco provided Ali Ba-Baidhan as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Fayez Alsharef as the Chief Procurement Officer (CPO).
