BASF has opened a new production plant for construction chemicals in Lagos, Nigeria. This is BASF’s first such plant in Western Africa and aims to meet the increasing demand in the region.

“We are now able to rapidly supply our customers with admixtures for all cement and aggregate types, whether their construction projects are located in the urban areas of western Africa or in more remote sites,” said Nair Narayanan, Country Manager for BASF Construction Chemicals, West Africa. He added that the business will further expand to serve countries including Ghana, Liberia, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso and the Ivory Coast.

BASF’s admixtures enable the production of concrete that is stronger and more durable while also increasing its workability retention.

Christian Geierhaas, regional head of BASF’s Construction Chemicals division, added: “Our clear aim is to support the local industry by reducing imports, thereby minimising the long lead times for supplies and other transport related issues, while supporting the economic growth of the region by creating employment opportunities.”
