GE Plastics will change its name to Sabic Innovative Plastics by the end of the summer, according to reports.

The name change is expected to become official sometime in September.

After a profit decline of 22 per cent from the previous year, GE Plastics was sold to Saudi Arabian-owned petrochemical firm Saudi Basic Industries Corp in May 2007 for US$11.6 billion.

The name change reflects a corporate shake up, as well. Charlene Begley, GE Plastics’ CEO, will step down from her position to assume a corporate role within GE. Brian T. Gladden, currently the head of GE Plastics resins business, will replace her, serving as president and CEO of Sabic Innovative Plastics.
