Moves polyurethane systems production for subsea insulation to Gulf Coast
BASF is moving the manufacturing of its offshore subsea insulation PUR systems to Houston, Texas. The move brings BASF closer to its Gulf Coast subsea insulation customers, reduces delivery times and improves upon technical service and customer responsiveness. “Making a capital investment in the Gulf Coast customer base is a critical step toward implementing our strategy of sustainable customer success," said Jim Lausch, manufacturing director for BASF Polyurethane Solutions. BASF Polyurethane Systems are used in a variety of mercury-free solutions supplied to the offshore industry, including subsea thermal insulation, structural elastomers, pipe pigs and rigid foam.
