BASF to sell inorganic specialties biz to Edgewater Capital

FLORHAM PARK/CLEVELAND, US: BASF has entered into an agreement to sell its inorganic specialities business to Edgewater Capital Partners LP.

Inorganic specialities include the Evans City, US production site and the Specialty Alcoholates, Boranes and Alkali Metals product lines which are produced at the site. The transaction is expected to be completed in the first quarter 2017. About 80 employees will remain at the Evans City site and join Edgewater upon the closing.

“BASF will continue to meet all of its obligations to customers, suppliers and employees through the transition of the business to Edgewater,” said Heidi Alderman, senior VP of BASF’s Intermediates business in North America.

“We are appreciative of the inorganics specialities business and the employees in Evans City, who have operated a safe and efficient manufacturing plant for 80 years. Their dedication and commitment to marketing and producing quality products is commendable and we thank them for their contributions to BASF’s success,” added Alderman.

“The business’ broad portfolio of products critical to chemical synthesis, depth and tradition in research and development, a strong commitment to environmental, health and safety systems, and the unique capabilities of the site make it the global leader in reagent technology. We are eager to build on this platform and in partnering with the significant expertise of the Inorganic Specialties team,” said Robert Girton, Principal, Edgewater Capital.
