About the Site

The site located in northwestern Germany goes back a long way, with its cornerstone laid in 1883. It has belonged to BASF since 2006. In addition to development, production, sales and technical service, the Oldenburg site houses part of the European product management for the Construction Chemicals division. In mid-December 2016 AkzoNobel took over the production of industrial coatings.
