This year, ALBIS PLASTIC GmbH and BASF SE are looking back on a successful 50-year partnership in plastics distribution.
By distributing Ultramid® and polystyrene, the foundation was laid in 1967 for the lasting success of a cooperation that continues to this day. Over time, this trusting partnership continued to grow and intensify. Numerous sales regions were added and today, ALBIS markets BASF products in almost all countries in Europe.
“The decisive criteria for the close cooperation between BASF and ALBIS are reliability, trust and success. These values have exemplified our partnership for 50 years. We are very proud of that”, explains Philip O Krahn, CEO of ALBIS PLASTIC.
In addition to expanding sales regions, the partnership began to include compounding, application technology and project development. “We look forward to continuing to master future challenges that the markets will provide together with a strong partner like BASF”, says Krahn.
The partnership was deepened further just a few months ago with the inclusion of BASF’s product, namely Ultramid® Advanced N. This high-performance material is an important addition to BASF’s engineering plastics portfolio for the automotive and electronics industries. Jürgen Becky, Senior Vice President, Performance Materials Europe at BASF, adds: “We consider ourselves fortunate to have, with ALBIS, an experienced and reliable partner who is established across Europe, who always gives us flexible support with an entrepreneurial spirit, even when things are challenging.”
