On December 13, BASF's Coatings division has opened the first automotive coatings plant in the ASEAN region at its Bangpoo manufacturing site in Samutprakarn province, Thailand.

Adjacent to its Coatings Technical Competence Center ASEAN opened in 2015, the new plant will produce solventborne and waterborne automotive coatings for the Southeast Asia region.

"BASF is a trusted partner of all major automotive manufacturers around the world, with a broad competence in all coating layers," said Dirk Bremm, President of BASF's Coatings division. "The inauguration of the new plant demonstrates our commitment to meeting customer expectations for advanced coating technologies and products in ASEAN, for ASEAN."

According to the LMC Automotive Report from November 2017, this year's total car production in ASEAN is anticipated to reach around 3.9 million. Thailand will account for more than 50% of this market, representing the largest coatings market within ASEAN, followed by Indonesia and Malaysia.

With an increasing number of automotive OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) engaging in production and technology development activities in ASEAN, there is also a growing need for local innovation in coatings solutions and products, as well as a high degree of technical service, according to BASF.

"With our robust capabilities in Thailand, we meet the increasing demand for sustainable and eco-efficient solutions," said Peter Fischer, Senior Vice President, Coatings Solutions Asia Pacific, BASF. "Working closely with our automotive customers globally and regionally, we are committed to be the partner of choice and drive for growth and success in the highly competitive ASEAN market."
