Abstract: Lyondell Chemical, a major global producer of basic chemicals and derivatives, has chosen SydneyPLUS for their information and library management needs.


(Vancouver, Canada -- March 23, 2007) Chemical, a major global producer of basic chemicals and derivatives, has chosen SydneyPLUS for their information and library management needs.

SydneyPLUS gave Lyondell:

  • Flexible licensing, expanding the system to cover additional remote sites
  • A single organization-wide database, eliminating redundancies
  • Knowledge management software at very effective ownership and operating cost

"Lyondell bought out Millennium Chemical, an existing client of ours," explains Phil Wensley, Account Manager for SydneyPLUS International, "When they began searching for a library system that would unify the two companies' knowledge resources, we were able to offer them a powerful solution at a very reasonable price."

With the existing SydneyPLUS licence from Millennium, Lyondell had access to a powerful new enterprise solution system that could operate across their entire organization. This move will allow them to upgrade to the latest information management technology with a minimal investment.

Lyondell Chemical is based in Houston, Texas and operates on five continents around the world, employing over 10,000 people. Founded in 1985, the company has grown to a $14.8 billion company, providing basic chemicals and derivatives to clients world-wide. Some of their major products include Ethylene, Propylene, Titanium dioxide, Styrene, polyethylene, Propylene oxide, Acetyls, and Gasoline blending components.
