By the end of 2014, BASF will have built a new European center of expertise for its flooring and waterproofing systems at the BASF Coatings GmbH site in Oldenburg, Germany. The company is investing in the production and development of polyurethane and epoxy-based systems for flooring and waterproofing, together with logistics, research, sales and service. The investment is the next step in the development of these businesses, following the sale of the CONICA Sports Surfaces business line and the Swiss Schaffhausen site on July 1st, 2013.
“Our new center in Oldenburg underlines our strategic and operational target to expand and develop permanently and sustainably our Performance Flooring und Waterproofing segments. We are setting ourselves up for the future and want to remain a reliable and innovative solution partner for our customers,” says Roland Nowicki, Vice President at BASF’s Business Unit Construction Chemicals Europe, to which the Performance Flooring and Waterproofing segments belong.
“Oldenburg is very well positioned thanks to the technical competence and experience of its employees and its infrastructure,” says Mark Paßkowski, Oldenburg site manager.
