Wholly-owned subsidiary WASCO exhibits its core operations alongside MEPCO  

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; 24 January 2018:  The Middle East and Africa’s leading vertically-integrated paper manufacturer, the Middle East Paper Co. (MEPCO), showcases its latest product innovations serving the packaging industries at the 15th edition of the Saudi Print, Pack, Plastics, and Petrochem Exhibition. MEPCO participate alongside its wholly-owned waste management arm, WASCO, which is responsible for supplying MEPCO roughly 90% of its raw material. 
Commenting on MEPCO’s participation at the exhibition, Eng. Sami Safran CEO of MEPCO said:

“MEPCO is a KSA-based entity with international aspirations. Participating in exhibitions that have this same international outlook will not only benefit MEPCO but also the local industry and the economy on a whole. MEPCO continues to deliver innovative containerboard and paperboard products to its customers while carrying out customer service excellence. We currently deliver our products throughout the world and are always looking for new market entry opportunities. This exhibition is an excellent platform to develop new relationships and strengthen existing ones.”
