BASF has announced that it is planning its first manufacturing plant in Myanmar in 2017.

Subject to Myanmar regulatory approvals, the plant will be located in the country’s commercial capital, Yangon, and will be designed to produce tailor-made construction chemical solutions from BASF’s Master Building Solutions portfolio for the local building market.

BASF opened its service office in Yangon in September 2015, but has been offering solutions to customers in the country for the past ten years through local distributors.

“As Myanmar’s construction industry grows more sophisticated in its scope, which includes high-rise buildings, roadways and bridges, the requirement for high-quality technical and construction chemical solutions will increase. BASF has a successful track record in supporting major building and infrastructure projects in Myanmar such as Thilawa Special Economic Zone, Yeywa hydropower dam, Myingyan steel mill, and others. We can draw on our decades of experience in the region and around the world to support Myanmar’s development in this important sector,” said Christian Mombaur, head of the BASF Construction Chemicals division’s regional unit in Asia.
