BASF expands its manufacturing footprint for coatings additives in China

BASF has increased its production capacity for advanced additives at its wholly-owned site in Nanjing, China. The new asset with state-of-the-art technologies will allow BASF to produce high molecular weight dispersing agents, slip and leveling agents and other additives locally for Asian markets.

Strategically located in the logistic hub, this new facility will enable BASF to serve customers across end-use industries, including coatings, adhesives, printings, and composites. Along with shortened delivery time, this expansion will also help customers and suppliers reduce carbon emissions and ease logistics arrangements.

Dr. Claus Dallner, Vice President of Global Business Management Performance & Formulation Additives, BASF said:

“The demand for additives in Asia Pacific is growing fast. It is important to have advanced production facilities in the region to support this development. Our investments in Asia Pacific will continue to strengthen our technical capabilities to better support our customers and grow with them together” 

BASF values sustainability and therefore implements the most advanced automation and state-of-the-art technologies for operational efficiency and safety enhancement. 

Dr. Stephan Kothrade, President and Chairman Greater China, BASF added:

“This expansion demonstrates our swift response to the growing market demand. Our customers will benefit from our enhanced local presence, operational efficiency and supply reliability”

The BASF Nanjing site has been in operation since 2013, producing additives for customers across Asia. It is a zero liquid discharge site which produces off-gas emissions that comply with increasingly stringent environmental regulations in China.
