"As a firm believer in the value of continuous development to achieve overall sustainability, EQUATE is determined on delivering innovation for the benefit and advantage of all stakeholders, especially industrial entities, customers and all consumers of plastic products," President and (CEO) of EQUATE Mohammed Hussein said in a statement here on Saturday.
