BASF Business Services Holding GmbH will in future focus on providing information services, supply chain operations and business process management solutions exclusively for BASF Group. These include consulting, development and operation of IT systems as well as the design of business processes along the value chain. Following this strategic decision, the company will not continue its business with third party customers, which has sales in the low double-digit million euro range. BASF Business Services Holding GmbH has thus signed an agreement to sell its third party business including the 100%-owned subsidiary BASF Business Services Consult GmbH, based in Hamburg, to Tech Mahindra GmbH, Düsseldorf, a German subsidiary of Tech Mahindra Limited, India, a provider of IT solutions and services.
Legal closing of the transaction is expected in the second quarter of 2014. All 60 employees of BASF Business Services Consult GmbH are included in the transaction and retain their employment contracts with the company. Further details of the transaction were not disclosed.
