GERMANY: BASF opens new Ludwigshafen research facility

BASF has opened a new research building in Ludwigshafen after two years of construction.

BASF has opened a new research building in Ludwigshafen after two years of construction.

The facility in the south of the Ludwigshafen site accommodates around 200 employees of the research division Advanced Materials & Systems Research, who have so far worked in different buildings in Ludwigshafen.

The laboratories and offices in the seven-storey building account for a total surface area of around 11,000 square metres, while the construction costs amount to around EUR50m (US$54.2m)

“For the long-term success of BASF, it is important to strengthen the global presence of our research and development activities, especially in Asia Pacific and the Americas,” said BASF board vice chairman and CTO, Martin Brudermuller.

“Ludwigshafen, however, remains the largest site of our R&D Verbund. This is underlined by the investment in the new building, which is a clear commitment to the Ludwigshafen research site.”
