BASF opened a new concrete admixture plant in Carmona, Cavite, Philippines on Dec. 2 as demand for construction chemicals in the country rises, the German chemical company announced by press release. The site will produce products from BASF’s Master Builders Solutions brand, including MasterPozzolith and MasterGlenium.

“The outlook for the construction industry in the Philippines is positive and expected to grow in the next four years, driven largely by the residential and infrastructure markets. The new Carmona plant enhances our flexibility to serve our customers with a timely supply and shorter lead times,” said Christian Mombaur, senior vice president of BASF’s construction chemicals Asia Pacific unit, in a statement. “As the Philippines is continuing its path of rapid urbanization and industrialization, our new Carmona plant will enable us to stay closer to our customers and offer solutions in specialized construction chemicals for long-lasting infrastructures and buildings.”

The new plant features production units, warehousing, technical laboratories for concrete and cement, and product quality control. The German company said the presence of the Carmona plant will support construction projects in the greater Manilla area and the Luzon provinces.

“The opening of our new production facility in the country underlies our commitment and long-term focus in serving our customers and providing them with durable and energy-efficient products This is another milestone for us as we support the rapid growth of the construction market in the Philippines,” said Roy T. Comagon, managing director of BASF Philippines, in the release.
