SABIC is one of the world’s leading petrochemical companies, operating in over 50 countries and employing over 33,000 people worldwide. It has operated on Teesside since 2006, through its subsidiary, SABIC UK Petrochemicals Limited.
SABIC UK Petrochemicals Limited has its headquarters based within the Wilton Centre, but has manufacturing and storage facilities located nearby, at Wilton International and North Tees industrial sites.
The Wilton International site hosts our two main manufacturing plants: Olefins 6, Europe’s second largest ethylene ‘cracker’, and System 18, the world’s largest Low-Density Polyethylene plant. We manufacture chemicals such as ethylene, propylene and butadiene, the building blocks for the many everyday materials and plastics that we have come to rely on in our modern world.
Many of our logistical facilities are located at our North Tees site, which includes numerous storage tanks, underground salt cavities, a liquefaction plant and jetties. SABIC’s import and export facilities make the Teesside site an integral part of SABIC’s European-manufacturing operations.
SABIC UK Petrochemicals Limited currently employs over 480 FTE manufacturing employees as well as over 400 contractors, creating £400m for the local economy through payroll, goods, services and utilities.
We are committed to operating our plants in a way that creates a safe workplace for our employees and with the highest commitment and respect for our environment and our local communities, of which we are part.
