BASF Polyurethane opens applications technology center near St. Petersburg, Russia

Published October 26, 2012
BASF opened its first Russian applications technology center for polyurethane systems in Vsevolozhsk, near St. Petersburg. Like the System House in Nishnekamsk, which went into operation in 2000, this site will also be a part of the BASF joint venture Elastokam with the Russian company OAO Nishnekamskneftechim (NKNC). The area houses a modern technology center and office space, alongside storage areas and a test laboratory.

This center will provide comprehensive technical services and sales support for modern polyurethane systems to quickly and competently serve customers all over Russia and other CIS countries. Equipment installed will make it possible to test PU materials for a wide range of applications in the automotive and construction industries, as well as in CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, Elastomers) related areas. Training programs and practical seminars for the company’s customers and partners will also take place within the  technology center.

“With our investment into a second Russian site we emphasize the significance of this region for BASF and show our local customers that we want to be their preferred partner by supporting their growth requirements“ said Raimar Jahn, president BASF Polyurethanes. “This investment is part of the systematic implementation of our successful worldwide strategy of having sites that are close to the customer which will strengthen our leadership position in the polyurethanes market.”
