Yangon/Myanmar – BASF has recently inaugurated its first production plant in Myanmar, located at East Dagon Township, close to Yangon. The state-of-the-art facility will produce high quality, tailor-made concrete admixtures to meet increasing demand for construction chemicals in the country. With the new plant, the company aims at staying close to its customers and offering solutions that meet the growing demands for residential construction, and industrial and infrastructure developments.
The new plant is equipped with production units, warehousing facilities and a laboratory for quality control. The firm produces standard and custom-made performance admixtures under the Master Builders Solutions brand, including product lines such as Master Ease, Master Glenium, Master Rheobuild, Master Pozzolith and Master Kure. The firm claims that the scale of this plant currently places BASF as the largest local producer of construction chemicals in Myanmar.
The plant is about 25 kilometers away from Yangon downtown, in close proximity to Thilawa Sea Port, Yangon Sea Port and Yangon International Airport. This strategic location makes it easy for the company to receive raw materials as well as deliver to customers across the country.
