Sabic Inaugurates Research Center in the Netherlands

On 19 May 2016 Sabic inaugurated a new research facility at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, the Netherlands. The state-of-the-art research center supports an extension of Sabic’s research capabilities in the area of innovative chemistry and materials, supporting the company’s vision to become the world leader in the chemical industry.

The new research building accommodates over 130 Technology & Innovation employees. The center includes a brainstorming room, supporting ‘out-of-the-box thinking’. Several labs complete the center, where materials and applications are being developed and tested. The new building extends the research buildings of Sabic Technology & Innovation at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus, where approximately 250 employees focus on the research and development of chemicals and polymer materials, and are a central part of the European innovation labs in Geleen, Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands, Wilton, UK and Cartagena, Spain.
