LyondellBasell has made the decision to cease operations at our two office locations in Russia. As a result, the offices in Moscow and Togliatti have begun winding down operations.
“Current conditions in the region are the primary drivers for this decision,” says Richard Roudeix, Senior Vice President, Olefins & Polyolefins, Europe, Middle East, Africa and India. “We recognize this is a difficult situation for our employees and have a local team in place to support them during this transition period.”
The offices were primarily involved in selling polymers from our O&P and APS businesses. Both offices employ a combined 18 employees.
