Saudi Basic Industries Corp. said it will consolidate three of its technology and innovation operations into its Selkirk facility, reported Rubber&Plastics News.

The firm will close its Pittsfield Polymer Processing Development Center, located in Pittsfield, N.Y., and its facility in Exton, Pa.

The moves are expected to be complete in 2017, once necessary modifications are done at the Selkirk site.

"This integration will not only drive important efficiencies, it will also merge material science, process engineering and application development into a collaborative environment that will lead to new innovation breakthroughs," Awadh Al-Maker, executive vice president, Sabic Technology & Innovation, said in a statement.

Sabic specializes in engineering thermoplastic resins and compounds, such as composites, functional surfaces and substrates, and also offers additive manufacturing solutions, part design, finished parts and materials processing. It serves industries such as mass transportation, health care, displays and electronics, and architectural specialties.

"A collaborative R&D environment will result in a wide variety of problem-solving options for our customers and will accelerate our development cycle," Thierry Materne, vice president, Technology & Innovation, said in a statement.
