Saudi Arabia: Downstream Manufacturing Sadara and Saudi National Automobile Manufacturing Company Sign Agreement
Sadara Chemical Company and Saudi National Automobiles Manufacturing Company (Snam) have signed a Cooperation Agreement for the planned Automobile Manufacturing Cluster in Plaschem Park.
Jubail/Saudi Arabia — Under the agreement, Sadara will work with Snam’s Auto Cluster tenants who will include automobile parts manufacturing companies — primarily Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and automotive Tier1 and Tier2 manufacturers — and identify potential third-party investors who are able to utilize the company's slate of specialist chemicals and plastics products to manufacture automotive parts locally.
Spread over an area of 1 million square meters, the Auto Cluster is expected to be the largest manufacturing cluster to be located in Plaschem Park, an industrial zone located adjacent to the Sadara site in Jubail Industrial City II. The Park is being developed in collaboration with the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu and will consist of downstream chemical and conversion industries supplied with products from Sadara and others in Jubail.
Plaschem Park is a 12 km2 industrial park in Jubail Industrial City II dedicated to downstream chemical and conversion industries.
