SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Saudi International Petrochemical Co (SIPCHEM) said on Tuesday that its marketing arm has opened an office in Singapore, which will sell and market all of the company’s products.

“The opening of an office in Singapore signals a clean break from our past practice of servicing customers’ needs through offtakers and distributors,” Ahmad Al-Ohali, chairman of Sipchem Marketing Co (SMC), said in a statement.

SMC focuses primarily on the marketing and sale of methanol, butanediol (BDO), tetrahydrofuran (THF), acetic acid (AA) and vinyl acetate monomer (VAM).

This year, its product portfolio will expand to include ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), low density polyethylene (LDPE), ethyl acrylate (ethyl-A) and butyl acrylate (butyl-A), with more products to be introduced in 2014.
