BASF Plastic Additives Middle East and Astra Polymers have signed a new contract that will see the two companies continue to work together to produce Customer SpecificBlends (CSB) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). This cooperative agreement combines the expertise of the two companies, bringing two complementary form-giving technologies for additive blends to customers in the region. This will position BASF to maintain its leadership position in the plastic additives market in the Middle East.
Astra Polymers has for several years operated BASF-owned production lines at its Dammam premises, producing CSB. Astra Polymers’ breadth of experience in the field of Masterbatch and Compounding add considerable value, enhancing BASF’s production capacities in the Middle East. BASF Plastic Additives Middle East markets and sells the CSB.
