Besides Production, Customer Order Management, Sales, Marketing, Product Management, and Research and Development departments are now located at Oldenburg which BASF says has "proven to be the right choice due to its location in the EU, the good infrastructure, and the competence of its employees."
“Our new center underlines our commitment to sustainable, long-term expansion for our flooring and waterproofing system segments. In addition, we are reinforcing our position as a reliable, innovative partner to our customers and providing support for them through individual solutions,” said Philipp Kley, Senior Vice President of the Construction Chemicals Europe Business Unit. “Oldenburg is very well positioned thanks to the technical competence and experience of its employees and its infrastructure,” added Mark Paßkowski, Oldenburg site manager.
The relocation of production equipment from Schaffhausen to Oldenburg took place in two stages to minimize negative impact on production operations. BASF has invested in logistics, facilities, production equipment, research and development. The added roll out of the tinting hubs (machines to color the floor systems) in Europe, increases flexibility, brings supply efficiency close to the customer and will improve the professional service significantly.
