Site Management

“The most important success factor for us in Würzburg is customer focus. Thanks to our high flexibility, especially in production, and the broad experience of our employees, we are able to realize customized solutions in high quality and in time. This is especially important for German automotive manufacturers. We managed to change over the majority of the products to waterborne solutions, making a significant contribution to environmental protection.”

Dr. Lucia Königsmann

BASF's Coatings division in Würzburg



The smooth collaboration of customer laboratories, application technology and production enable us here in Würzburg to provide individual paints for auto bodies and automotive add-on parts.

Products and Industry

Over 50 million vehicles currently sport BASF waterborne basecoats "Made in Würzburg." In Würzburg, we also manufacture solventborne basecoats for the automotive industry.


We already developed the waterborne basecoat technology in Würzburg back in the mid-1980s. Instead of using solvents, we thin our products with water. Our waterborne basecoats stand out because they are sustainable without compromising quality or application properties.
