Matthias Zachert, Chairman of the Board of Management of Lanxess , and Abdulrahman F. Al-Wuhaib, Senior Vice President Downstream of Saudi Aramco signed the JV agreement in Cologne, Germany.

Arlanxeo will be headquartered in the Netherlands. The partners will soon appoint the management team that will run the jv. Each partner will have equal representation on the boards overseeing the company. The CEO will be appointed by Lanxess and the CFO by Saudi Aramco.
