BASF to shut down calcium D-pantothenate plant for maintenance

 

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF is to shut down production of calcium D-pantothenate at its facility in Ludwigshafen for a few weeks during October 2011. The shut down is necessary to conduct a routine overhaul. All existing contractual obligations will be honoured, the company informed.

Furthermore, BASF increases global prices for calcium D-pantothenate (vitamin B5) products for use in human and animal nutrition by €1.4 per kg ($2 per kg, respectively) effective immediately or as existing commitments allow. The increase is to compensate for higher raw material cost, which have occurred in 2011. BASF is a leading supplier of calcium D-pantothenate worldwide.
