Münster is the world's largest connected coatings site and the headquarters of BASF's Coatings division. Roughly 11,000 employees at over 70 locations in Europe, South and North America and Asia Pacific work on innovative automotive OEM coatings and refinish products, als well as on applied surface treatments for metal, plastic and glass substrates for numerous industries.

Color lends a car an indivudual note and accentuates its design. For nearly 50 years now we have been running a production operation at the Würzburg site for waterborne basecoat. Their use enabled us to significantly reduce the level of solvent emissions during coating.
Oldenburg houses more than one division. Here, along with toll manufacturing of industrial coatings, we produce floor-coating systems known as MasterTop, that are ideal for both decorative and industrial applications. The employees in the Construction Chemicals division at the Oldenburg site play a decisive role in maintaining and expanding the market leadership of BASF in many of the construction industry's key technologies.
