Noblesville, IN January 29, 2019 – Saudi Pallet Manufacturing Company (SPMC), a multi-use plastic pallet manufacturer utilizing Paxxal Inc.’s proprietary plastic pallet technology and design, has signed a $90 Million Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SABIC (Saudi Arabian Basic Industries Corporation). Under the MoU, SPMC will partner with SABIC to manufacture Paxxal pallets for export and develop supply chain initiatives for the local market.

The cooperation agreement between SPMC and SABIC exemplifies the joint partnership between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s public and private sectors to utilize locally sourced technology, increase local employment, utilize local resources (such as SABIC’s plastic), increase local GDP and much more.
Omar Shawaf, Chairman of SPMC, and Ben Stoller, CEO of Paxxal, were in attendance to sign the agreement. The MoU comes as a result of SABIC’s strategic initiatives to develop the localization of goods and services and enhance Saudi capabilities to meet the objectives of Saudi Vision 2030.
