* Offices and laboratory under one roof

* Closer to customers and a better service in Spain

BASF Curtex S.A. has opened its new business premises in Ribarroja del Turia, near Valencia, Spain. The site comprises office space and a complete technical center.

“As a result, we will be in a better position to help our customers in Valencia in the development of new applications and, at the same time, our customers will benefit from a comprehensive technical service,” says Thomas Sattler, who is responsible for BASF’s global leather business. “In this way, we are also underlining our commitment to the Spanish market.”

The new business premises of BASF Curtex S. A. are located close to one of the most important leather producers for the shoe and clothing industries and are easy to access by way of the main transport routes in the region.

“We see Valencia as an important leather center in the long term and therefore want to face the challenges together with our customers,” says Luis Fañanás, head of the leather business at BASF Curtex S. A., Spain.

Spain is one of the most important markets for BASF’s leather business in Europe. The new site will help to further enhance BASF’s position in Spain. The overall business in south-west Europe will continue to be managed from the headquarters of BASF Curtex S.A. near Barcelona.
