PRAGUE (ICIS news)--BASF is to invest several million euros in establishing a construction chemicals plant in Poland, the German group's Polish subsidiary, BASF Polska, said on Tuesday.

The unit, to be built at Srem near Poznan in west-central Poland, would produce jointing mortars and adhesives for ceramic and natural stone wallboards as well as construction adhesives for energy-saving heating systems in buildings and jointless floors, the subsidiary said.

Capacity of the highly automated production plant would be 45,000 tonnes/year, BASF Polska added.

BASF already operates a concrete additives plant in Poland, in Myslenice, near Krakow, southern Poland.

“In 2006, BASF took over the construction chemicals department of Degussa as part of a global contract, also in Poland,” said BASF Polska CEO Michael Hepp.

"Now, we’re making one step forward... this factory will provide custom-made chemicals for the market, the potential of which is still rising.”
