Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Am­bas­sador of the State of Kuwait to Ger­many Mon­ther Al-Essa vis­ited the booth of EQUATE Petro­chem­i­cal Com­pany, Kuwait’s first in­ter­na­tional joint-ven­ture in this in­dus­try, dur­ing the In­ter­na­tional Trade Fair for Plas­tics and Rub­ber (K 2016). Tak­ing place in Dus­sel­dorf, Ger­many, dur­ing Oc­to­ber 19-26, K 2016 is con­sid­ered the world’s big­gest event of its type.

Am­bas­sador Essa said, “His High­ness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ah­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah ex­pressed his vi­sion to trans­form Kuwait into a fi­nan­cial and com­mer­cial hub. For this to be achieved, eco­nomic di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion through de­vel­op­ing the in­dus­trial sec­tor is a key fac­tor. Kuwait’s in­dus­trial pres­ence is prom­i­nent through­out dif­fer­ent parts of the world as we ex­port a num­ber of main com­modi­ties, such as petro­chem­i­cals that are uti­lized in man­u­fac­tur­ing plas­tics and other prod­ucts. With petro­chem­i­cal prod­ucts cur­rently form­ing over 60% of the value of Kuwait’s non-oil ex­ports, this in­dus­try has an ev­i­dent role in di­ver­si­fy­ing in­come sources and the global pres­ence of Kuwaiti in­dus­tries. We are proud to see Kuwait be­ing rep­re­sented at K 2016 through EQUATE’s par­tic­i­pa­tion.”

EQUATE Poly­eth­yl­ene Busi­ness Di­rec­tor and Pres­i­dent of EQUATE Mar­ket­ing Com­pany (EMC) Ah­mad Al-Saleh said, “Through­out the past 20 years, EQUATE has formed solid col­lab­o­ra­tion lo­cally and world­wide with all stake­hold­ers. Through this col­lab­o­ra­tion, EQUATE has main­tained ex­cel­lence based on Qual­ity, Re­li­a­bil­ity, Sus­tain­abil­ity, Growth and Suc­cess­ful Part­ner­ships. EQUATE has pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties and cus­tomers in var­i­ous parts of the world. EQUATE is par­tic­i­pat­ing in K 2016 un­der the theme ‘We Care. We De­liver’ as we have just com­pleted the de­bot­tle­neck­ing project to in­crease our poly­eth­yl­ene pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity from 825,000 MTA to al­most 1 mil­lion MTA. On be­half of EQUATE, I would like to ex­tend ap­pre­ci­a­tion and grat­i­tude to Am­bas­sador Essa for this in­valu­able visit dur­ing K 2016.”

Dur­ing the visit, Am­bas­sador Essa was ac­com­pa­nied by Saleh and other mem­bers of EQUATE’s staff for a tour around K 2016 to view the event’s var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties.
