BASF to build emulsion polymers plant in Texas



Published November 13, 2012
BASF recently announced plans to build a new production plant for emulsion polymers at its integrated “Verbund” site in Freeport, Texas. The new plant will allow BASF to better serve the coatings, construction, adhesives, and paper industries by expanding the network of manufacturing locations and improve the backward integration of raw materials used in production, according to the company. The new plant, which is expected to begin production in mid-2014, will create approximately 25 new jobs at the Freeport site.

“The new plant strengthens our position as a leading supplier of emulsions in North America and demonstrates our commitment to customers in the coatings, construction, adhesives and paper industries,” said Derek Fairclough, senior vice president, dispersions and pigments, for BASF in North America. “This investment further supports our business growth strategy, especially in architectural coatings, where we are targeting significant growth with our range of innovative products and solutions.”

The plant will manufacture acrylic emulsion polymers used for architectural coatings, construction chemicals, adhesives and the paper chemicals industry.
