Arabian Plastic Industrial Company (Apico) has secured funding facilities worth SR105.5 million ($29 million) from Saudi Investment Bank (SAIB) to further expand its business core production activities as well as boost the company’s growth.
A leading provider of superior injection molding production services, Apico said the finance facilities will be in the form of working capital and a medium term loan.
These funds will eventually be used for setting up a new production facility in capital Riyadh, stated Apico in its filing to Saudi bourse Tadawul.

Additional working capital limit with an amount SR22 million combined with sublimit of medium term loan 19.8 million to be settled in 22 quarterly installments after 6 months of compiling the complete loan drawdowns.
