PolyOne/Juffali: New Specialty Colorant Facility in Saudi Arabia
PolyOne Corporation, Avon Lake, OH, USA, a global provider of specialized polymer materials, services and solutions, announced that Juffali PolyOne Masterbatch Co. Ltd., a joint venture between PolyOne Corporation and E.A. Juffali & Brothers Limited, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has opened their new production facility in Jeddah. This new facility will help customers in the Middle East innovate and grow via local access to world-class specialty polymer colorants.
The opening of the new production facility is a logical extension of nearly 30 years of cooperation between the two companies, which became even stronger in October of 2011, when PolyOne and Juffali announced formation of the Juffali PolyOne Masterbatch joint venture. Juffali brings its local expertise in the region to the venture, and PolyOne provides its formulation technology and material science. The opening of this new facility was celebrated in Jeddah with customers, local officials and senior leadership of both joint venture partner companies.
The new facility is focused on the production of specialty color concentrates and has the potential for expansion into other product lines in future phases.
