BASF India Limited inaugurated its Polyurethane Technical Development Centre India on May 28th, 2024, in Mumbai. Located within the BASF innovation campus, the newly inaugurated Polyurethane Technical Development Centre will support market development of polyurethane applications in industries such as transportation, construction, footwear, appliances, and furniture. 

The Centre houses state-of-the-art applications equipment in approximately 2,000 sq metre space.

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 Centre, located at BASF's Innovation Campus in Mumbai.

Furthermore, BASF India will increase the production capacity of its Ultramid® polyamide (PA) and Ultradur® polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) compounding plant in Panoli, Gujarat and Thane, Maharashtra.

"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 Andy Postlethwaite, Senior Vice President, Performance Materials Asia Pacific, BASF.

With the production capacity increase of over 40 per cent in Panoli and Thane, BASF 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.
