BASF 

 

Having made its first sales in Turkey in 1880, BASF has a long history in Turkey. As one of the pioneers in the industry, for many years BASF has supplied chemical products for various industrial sectors and has contributed to the Turkish economy since the foundation of the republic.

 

BASF has operations at five production facilities, namely Dilovası, Çayırova, Gebze, Trabzon and Adana, as well as offices in Istanbul, Adana, Ankara, Antalya, Bursa, Dudullu and Izmir.

 

Product sales are gathered under four main groups: industrial chemicals, functional products and solutions, performance products and agricultural solutions. The company offers services to many key industries, including automotive, electric-electronics, construction, leather-textiles, detergents, cleaning, medical devices, cosmetics, animal feedstuff, agriculture and food.

 

BASF continues its activities with the mission “We create chemistry for a sustainable future”, and as part of this mission, BASF signed a protocol in 2010 with the Ministry of National Education to renew chemistry laboratories of 81 high schools in 81 cities, and therefore initiated the “81 Chemistry Labs in 81 Cities” project. With the ongoing project, 81 chemistry laboratories of 81 schools are being renovated and equipped.

 

BASF also initiated a global education project called “Kids’ Lab” to encourage children to love chemistry. Kid's Lab was rolled out in Turkey in 2011 in three different shopping malls and is currently hosted in the Istanbul Modern. Having reached more than 10,000 children as of 2016, Kids’ Lab was awarded the “Social Impact Practices” by the Corporate Social Responsibility Association of Turkey in 2012. A virtual game in Kids’ Lab called Sanalika has recently been awarded the Gold Mixx for the in-game integration category at the IAB Mixx Awards.

 

BASF’s renovated Dilovası Facilities Management Center building has been awarded  the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold” certificate. Meanwhile, the company’s newly constructed Construction Chemicals, Logistics and Technical Development Center building in Gebze received the LEED Platinum certificate and became the first industrial building to be certified with the highest level-LEED in Turkey.
