Manager Director of S.A. Talke speaks exclusively to the Middle East edition of Business Chief magazine
Saudi Arabia’s petrochemical industry is critical to its non-oil economy, with chemical and plastic exports accounting for around $30bn in export revenues in 2015.
Leading logistics provider, S.A. TALKE, has cemented its position in this market, offering a range of specialised logistics services such as on-site and off-site operations, packaging, storage, transport as well as value-added services.
Last year, the Saudi firm handled around 8.4mn tonnes of product for its customers. Yet, despite its growing reach, the firm strives to take a project-driven approach and uphold the highest safety values.
“Our core business always will be in the petrochemical market, that is what we do best. But we are also looking to explore other market segments,” said Oliver Klingbeil.
“We’re always defining new ways and new parameters to make safety,” he added. “This is the culture we uphold and live by every day. You don’t achieve 6mn man-hours without LTI without this culture.”
