China: BASF SE, a Germany based company engaged in the production & distribution of a wide range of chemicals for applications across various industries, has planned to construct a new plastic additive manufacturing facility at Caojing site in Shanghai, China.

The company revealed that post-completion of the new facility, would lead to 42,000 thousand metric ton annual production capacity of antioxidants & associated forms and blends. The construction of new facility would be accomplished by the end of 2019 and would be operational by 2020. The newly constructed plant would be in Caojing complex, therefore, the proximity of new plastic additive plant to regional application centre of BASF would also be beneficial for the company.

TechSci Research depicts that the plan to construct a new plastic additive manufacturing plant is a part of strategic expansion of BASF. The new plant would strengthen the production as well as the distribution network of the company across the globe, particularly, the facility would aid BASF in catering the demand generated for plastic additive by packaging, construction, consumer goods and automotive sectors of the Asian countries.
