Sabic Company Structure

Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) is a manufacturer of chemicals, fertilizers, plastics and metals. SABIC claims that it is the largest and most profitable non-oil company in the Middle East and one of the world’s top ten largest petrochemicals manufacturers. The origins of SABIC come from a decision made by Saudi Arabia in the 1970s to use the flared associated gases from its oil well heads to make value-added industrial commodities. In September 1976, SABIC was established to add value to Saudi Arabia's natural hydrocarbon resources.
