BASF Expands Automotive Coatings Production in China

BASF Shanghai Coatings Company Limited is investing in a new facility for basecoat production at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in Shanghai, China. Intended to support the growth of the Chinese automotive industry, the new plant will increase BASF’s local production capacity for basecoat by 13,500 tons per year. The new plant, scheduled to begin production in early 2014, will be designed according to the latest environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and technologies, the company said.

BASF Shanghai Coatings Company Limited is a joint venture between BASF and Shanghai Coatings Company Ltd. The partnership has been in existence for 15 years, and is currently running a production facility in the district of Minhang in Shanghai.

“In China, BASF has been supplying coatings reliably to international and domestic car makers for more than 15 years,” states Peter Fischer, senior vice president, Coatings Solutions Asia Pacific, at BASF. “Our investment in additional local coatings production facilities reflects our commitment to address the current and future needs of our automotive customers in this dynamic market.”
