SABIC showcased its range of sustainable metal and pipe solutions within the building and construction sector, besides highlighting its local content initiative, at the Big 5 International Building & Construction Show in Dubai from December 5 to 8.
As one of the largest manufacturers of steel in the Middle East and North Africa region, SABIC highlighted its Flat and Long steel products as well as its new pipe grades, such as BiAx PE/PP, PERT II and PE100 Orange.
The end products, which were made with SABIC material, were all locally produced, demonstrating the manufacturing competencies of Saudi Arabia and a reflection of SABIC’s contribution to achieving the objectives of the Saudi Made Program.
SABIC’s participation included its groundbreaking initiatives, NUSANED™ and NUSANED Investment™ Company, which seek to promote investments in small and medium enterprises and support the development of local content. The show participants were briefed on the initiative’s aim – to facilitate SABIC becoming a key enabler in the achievement of Saudi Vision 2030 by providing opportunities for investors who wish to develop their businesses in innovative and leading industrial sectors.
