As BASF’s first investment in Tianjin, this site is also the company’s eleventh polyurethane system house in Asia Pacific and the third in Mainland China. It will join a comprehensive worldwide network which currently includes 38 system houses.
The new system house develops and manufactures innovative polyurethane systems for a wide range of industries. The new facility occupies 3.4 hectares of land in the Tianjin Economic Technological Development Area. Along with the current system houses in Shanghai and Nansha, as well as a planned system house in Chongqing, BASF reports that is well positioned to lead the polyurethane market. The system houses are also supported by BASF’s production sites for basic materials in Caojing, Shanghai and the upcoming facility in Chongqing.
