Equate Petrochemical Company, a major player in the petrochemical sector based in Kuwait, said its annual sales to local Kuwaiti plastic manufacturers for 2012 increased by over 300 per cent thus netting orders worth $45 million.

"This is a demonstration of Equate’s continued growth within Kuwait and beyond, as well as its unwavering support and commitment towards our customers," he noted.
