As the leading supplier of polyurethane (PU) system solutions worldwide, BASF is further expanding its global service and production network. With the establishment of a new Polyurethane Solutions System House in Cartagena, Colombia, BASF will meet the demand of the growing markets in Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador. BASF sees attractive business opportunities in important industries like Appliance, Transportation, Construction and Footwear. Like all other BASF System Houses the new site will have local production with sales and development personnel to provide fast and competent service to their customers. The site will be fully operating by the first quarter 2011.

The investment in Cartagena demonstrates BASF's continued commitment to the PU industry by supporting its customers' growth in all regions of the world as their preferred partner. “With our global network of 38 System Houses and world-scale production sites for PU basic products MDI, TDI and polyols in all regions, BASF is the only polyurethane manufacturer who can serve its customers worldwide from local production sites”, states Jacques Delmoitiez, President BASF Polyurethanes.

“We expect the market for PU systems in the ANDEAN region to grow in the coming decade by 6 %”, states Anton Traunfellner, Managing Director BASF Polyurethanes in South America. The Cartagena System House will benefit from the worldwide BASF Verbund including the PU System House network and the knowledge and expertise of BASF's PU specialists all over the world. Traunfellner: “We are looking forward to working with our customers in order to find better solutions – Polyurethane Solutions! I invite them to make this System House their house, their new home for ideas, innovation and partnership in the ANDEAN region.”
