BASF boosts engineering plastics and PU capabilities in India

BASF India Ltd is increasing the production capacity of its Ultramid branded polyamide (PA) and Ultradur branded polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) compounding plant in Panoli (Gujarat) and Thane (Maharashtra). The company is also opening a new Polyurethane Technical Development Centre India, near Mumbai, to support market development of polyurethane (PU) applications in industries such as transportation, construction, footwear, appliances and furniture.

“The capacity expansion of Ultramid and Ultradur in Panoli and Thane, as well as the inauguration of the centre shows our commitment to enhancing local production and capabilities. With this Made-in-India-for-India strategy, we increase our speed-to-market and stay close to our customers, enabling us to shorten our delivery time in terms of products, solutions and technical service,” said Mr. Andy Postlethwaite, Senior Vice President, Performance Materials Asia Pacific, BASF.

With the production capacity increase of over 40% in Panoli and Thane, BASF said it is well-positioned to meet the strong market demand for the high-performance material solution in India. The increased capacity will be available in 2H-2025.

The new PU technical centre houses state-of-the-art applications equipment in an approximately 2,000 sq meter space. “It offers improved customer support services ranging from troubleshooting to customised formulations, line trials, and customer training sessions. It can further harness the know-how, synergies and competencies within our existing global polyurethane network, to provide fast and advanced technical service to customers. This will help drive innovation with customers alongside the Creation Center, located at BASF’s Innovation Campus in Mumbai,” the company said in a press note.
