BASF: PU Network in China Expanded
BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, is expanding its global network with another system house in China for polyurethane (PU) solutions. The system house will be established in Tianjin and will start full operations by 2012. Tianjin, as the biggest commercial center in North China with 12 million residents, has strong strategic importance. Moreover, BASF expects continued above-average market growth for PU products in the fields of construction, household appliances, infrastructure and transport in China.
The Tianjin unit will be an important link in the network currently comprising 38 system houses. It will cooperate closely with the two existing Chinese facilities and their development units in Shanghai and Nansha, as well as the Chongqing system house currently being planned.
