Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC (Chevron Phillips Chemical) congratulates Saudi Polymers Company (SPCo) and its joint venture partner, National Petrochemical Company (Petrochem), as the joint venture’s manufacturing facility located in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia, begins commercial production. 

"This is an exciting time for the SPCo team, and we are proud to report we’ve safely achieved start-up and commercial production for our new facilities," said Mike Zeglin, executive president of Saudi Polymers Company. "We will now be working to fill the critical inventory targets needed to ensure our long-term reliability as a supplier of quality products."

SPCo, which began construction in January 2008, has created approximately 950 jobs, with a high percentage being occupied by Saudi nationals.
