We want our customers to experience a new BASF – for example, in our Creation Centers. At these spaces full of inspiration and the latest technology, customers can discover BASF’s high-performance plastics, explore potential applications and work hand-in-hand with BASF experts to create new products. This accelerates the process of transforming conceptual ideas to creative solutions. The photo shows our Creation Center in Shanghai, China, which we opened in August 2019. It is one of four of its kind worldwide.
