BASF To Expand Manufacturing at Wyandotte, MI, Monaca, PA, Sites

Published May 29, 2013
BASF  plans to expand manufacturing capabilities for products marketed under the Joncryl trade name at plants located in Wyandotte, MI, and Monaca, PA to support customer growth in the printing, packaging, and industrial coating markets. 
These investments will provide additional capacity, operational flexibility and reliability as BASF continues to invest in the industry’s most cost-effective, state-of-the-art emulsion polymer and resin manufacturing facilities.

In November, 2012, BASF announced a major investment in emulsion polymer manufacturing capacity in Freeport, Texas and held an official groundbreaking ceremony on February 8, 2013, and the plant is expected to be operational by the summer of 2014 to support our customers growth expectations.

BASF has also made the decision to close its Seaford, Delaware, manufacturing site, which has produced emulsion polymers since 1986.  The Seaford site will close by the end of 2013 and production will be transitioned to BASF’s Wyandotte and Monaca sites.

“The decision to make these investments, while optimizing our manufacturing footprint to our largest and most modern facilities, demonstrates our continued commitment to our customers and growth in the North America region,” said Derek Fairclough, senior vice president, dispersions and pigments for BASF in North America.
