Plastics solutions provider Borouge has opened part of its new packaging facility at Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port, which would enhance the company’s exports to the rest of the world
The new facility was designed and constructed after a joint agreement was signed between Borouge and Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) in June 2014, revealed officials from Borouge.
Abdulaziz Alhajri, CEO of Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge), said, “Operating our new packaging facility at Khalifa Port embodies our commitment to ensure better, safer and faster distribution of our products and reflects the importance of this advanced packaging solution, which Abu Dhabi Terminals has provided us.”
Khalifa Port is a major trade gateway in the UAE, through which a majority of Borouge products are shipped. The port has a capacity of 385,000 metric tonnes, meant to enhance the company’s existing supply chain network.
Wim Roels, CEO of Borouge, said the new packaging facility and services provided at Khalifa Port provides more flexibility to serve customers better and achieve business targets all over the world, in addition to the existing packaging facilities in the Ruwais plant and in the company’s regional hubs in China and Singapore.
