BASF is investing around EUR 90 million to set up a world-scale production plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in Shanghai, China. The new plant will produce high performance resins and electrocoat (e-coat) to support growing demands for automotive coatings in Asia Pacific. The start-up of the production line is planned for the second half of 2015. The plant will help to address the increasing demand for high quality coatings solutions in growing industries, notably the automotive industry, in Asia Pacific.

"The continued investment in our infrastructure and capacity demonstrates our strong commitment to supporting our customers’ growing business in the automotive market in Asia Pacific, particularly in China,” said Peter Fischer, Senior Vice President, Coatings Solutions Asia Pacific. This new resin and e-coat plant will be located adjacent to another new BASF automotive coatings plant which broke ground in early 2013. The close proximity of these two plants will allow for more synergies and efficiency.
