BASF to buy Polish TDI business from Ciech


Global chemicals and plastics giant BASF has agreed to acquire parts of the toluene diisocyanate (TDI) business of Poland’s only domestic producer of the key polyurethanes intermediate Ciech.
The £34.5m transaction, still subject to approval by the relevant antitrust authorities, should be completed in the first three months of 2013.
Ciech’s TDI is produced by its recently reorganised subsidiary Zachem, based in Bydgoszcz, Poland which has a capacity of some 75,000 tpa. Zachem’s production plant in Bydgoszcz is not included in the BASF transaction, the parties said.
Assets being sold include customer lists, business contracts for TDI, intellectual property rights for Ciech’s TDI products and technology as well as know-how related to the organic compound.
BASF is a leading supplier of basic raw materials for polyurethanes and runs TDI plants in Schwarzheide, Germany; Yeosu, South Korea; Caojing, China and Geismar, Louisiana in the US. The group will also construct the world’s biggest single train TDI plant at its base complex in Ludwigshafen, Germany by 2014.
