The EPDM, it added, is being shipped directly from the Red Sea port of the production site and sold globally via the Keltan KSA online self-service portal.
The portal offers customers “full control, direct interaction and 24/7 access from any location around the world,” according to Arlanxeo
“Through Keltan KSA's distinct business model and positioning in the EPDM market, we are further strengthening Arlanxeo’s position,” said Christian Widdershoven, member of Arlanxeo’s executive leadership team.
Arlanxeo and Aramco reached a global sales agreement in February 2018 to market Petro Rabigh EPDM rubber under Keltan KSA brand globally.
The rubber is produced at the 75 kilotonnes per annum (ktpa) plant within the integrated chemical complex operated by Petro Rabigh, a JV between Saudi Aramco and Sumitomo Chemical.
At the end of 2018, Arlanxeo launched an online platform to market the product globally in a “self-service” manner.
