“There are exciting times ahead for the company which has recently joined with Arabian Chemical Terminals (ACT) to develop business opportunities in Saudi Arabia and adjacent Gulf States.
“We are also looking at how the company can best operate in other parts of the world to build on the success it’s already had in Asia and Europe.”
Suttons Arabia is due to start operating later this month.
