BASF in the UAE

From its offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, BASF supplies a wide range of materials to most industries in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Our main areas of activity are Construction, Energy and Resources, Chemicals and Plastics. 

BASF has been present in the UAE since the 1970’s. BASF’s construction, oil and gas, and chemical divisions are the most active in the UAE, driven by opportunities from the country’s ongoing investment in infrastructure and industry.

BASF’s Dubai office in Jebel Ali is home to BASF’s regional headquarters and serves as a base for the company’s activities in the Middle East. The BASF office in the Nation Tower in the UAE’s capital Abu Dhabi focuses on a product portfolio which includes gas treatment, catalysts and adsorbents and petrochemical solutions.

The BASF Chemetall Ltd. office is located in Musaffah, Abu Dhabi’s industrial area. Chemetall, which was acquired by BASF in December 2016, is a leading global supplier of applied surface treatments for metal, plastic and glass substrates in a wide range of industries and end markets.

Over the last 35 years, BASF has been involved in major projects, such as the Dubai Creek in the 1980’s, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce Building in the 1990’s, the iconic Burj Khalifa and the Presidential Palace n Abu Dhabi. Moving forward, BASF is at the forefront of prominent public-private partnerships to help achieve many of the nation’s infrastructure and development goals.

BASF is committed to contributing to meeting the current and future needs of the UAE and lives up to its corporate purpose: ‘We create chemistry for a sustainable future’. We combine economic success with environmental protection and social responsibility, while offering intelligent solutions and high-quality products for almost all industries across the UAE.

BASF is actively sharing knowledge with future generations in the region. We have partnered with the Young Future Energy Leaders program from Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi and were a knowledge partner during the first Solar Decathlon held in the Middle East. E also use our vocational training expertise to support events such as WorldSkills and EmiratesSkills.

In wake of mega-events, such as Expo 2020, and government initiatives towards energy efficiency and sustainability, we at BASF find it a promising basis toward further growth.
