BASF has inaugurated its new production plant in Carmona, Cavite, Philippines.
The new facility will produce both standard and custom-made performance based concrete admixtures under the Master Builders Solutions brand and will allow BASF to better meet the increasing demand of construction chemicals customers in the Philippines. This will include product ranges such as MasterGlenium, MasterPolyheed, MasterRheobuild, MasterPozzolith and MasterCem.
The new plant is located at the Golden Mile Business Park in Cavite and is equipped with production units, warehouseing facilities, technical laboratories for concrete and cement, and product quality control. Concrete admixtures produced in the new plant, alongside other BASF construction chemicals imported and stocked, will greatly benefit the users and their construction projects in the Greater Manila Area and the nearby Luzn provinces.
“The outlook for the construction industry in the Philippines is positive and expected to grow in the next four years, driven largely by the residential and infrastructure markets. The new Carmona plant enhances our flexibility to serve our customers with a timely supply and shorter lead times,” said Mr. Christian Mombaur, Senior Vice President, Construction Chemicals Asia Pacific, BASF. “As the trend toward rapid urbanisation and industrialisation continues in the Philippines, our new Carmona plant will enable us to stay closer to our customers and offer solutions in specialised construction chemicals for long-lasting infrastructures and buildings.”
Mr. Roy T. Comagon, Managing Director of BASF Philippines, Inc. said, “The opening of our new production facility in the country underlines our commitment and long-term focus in serving our customers and providing them with durable and energy-efficient products. This is another milestone for us as we support the rapid growth of the construction market in the Philippines.”
