LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY/WYANDOTTE, US: BASF has opened a new research lab for thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) in Wyandotte, Michigan. A multidisciplinary team of product developers, chemists and material scientists will work to discover new products for the American automotive, construction, sports and leisure industries. Wyandotte is BASF’s largest research and development site in the Midwest of the United States. The new polyurethane research team further enhances the technology and knowledge at this site.

“Closeness to our American customers and fast and direct contact are key criteria in enabling us to tap into new ideas and emerging market trends and produce sustainable innovations. The new lab in Wyandotte is the latest strategic step toward an ever more global overall approach to research. It was also an excellent basis for expansion of the existing scientific network with universities and other research facilities in North America,” said Dr Christian Fischer, President, Advanced Materials & Systems Research division, BASF.
