Mangalore, India – – BASF will launch a production line for precious metal-based fine chemical catalysts at the company's manufacturing site in Mangalore, India. These catalysts are important for the efficient production of active pharmaceutical ingredients.

'BASF is an industry leader in developing cutting-edge catalysts and technologies for pharmaceutical and fine chemical applications,' said Dr. Hans-Peter Neumann, Senior Vice President, Process Catalysts and Technologies at BASF's Catalysts division. 'This expansion will allow us to cost effectively increase our manufacturing footprint and production capacity, leveraging an existing BASF facility to enhance our proximity to customers in the Asia Pacific region.'

'India is a significant growth market for the pharmaceutical industry. As population expands, the need for new and cost-effective life-saving drugs is also on a rise. BASF has a wide range of products and solutions which find application in the pharmaceutical industry. By introducing a new production line for precious metal-based fine chemical catalysts in India, we will expand our offerings to meet the needs of local pharmaceutical producers,' said Mr. Prasad Chandran, Chairman, BASF Companies in India & Head South Asia.
