The China Post - - ARTS -

BASF Tai­wan Ltd. and Na­gase Wahlee Plas­tics Corp (NWP) re­cently an­nounced that the com­pa­nies have signed a let­ter of in­tent to en­ter into a dis­tri­bu­tion agree­ment.

Un­der the terms of the col­lab­o­ra­tive agree­ment, NWP, a spe­cial­ist in the dis­tri­bu­tion of high-per­for­mance ma­te­ri­als, will sup­port BASF’s polyurethane cus­tomers in Tai­wan. It will also ex­pand BASF’s ex­ist­ing pres­ence in the do­mes­tic mar­ket with ser­vices such as prod­uct stock­ing, repack­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion of both polyurethane so­lu­tions and in­jec­tion mold­ing grades for ther­mo­plas­tic polyurethanes (TPU). At the same time, BASF will con­tinue to pro­vide prod­uct knowl­edge, for­mu­lat­ing know-how, best-in-class qual­ity man­age­ment pro­cesses and tech­ni­cal ser­vice to ex­ist­ing and new cus­tomers.

“With NWP’s in­te­grated sales net­work, we aim to of­fer more dis­tri­bu­tion flex­i­bil­ity in the lo­cal mar­ket. This part­ner­ship comes less than a year af­ter we ac­quired Tai­wan Sheen Soon’s ad­he­sives busi­ness, and is part of our strate­gic ef­forts to bet­ter serve the promis­ing Tai­wan mar­ket. Our broad port­fo­lio of polyurethanes in­clud­ing TPU and TPU ad­he­sives en­ables us to of­fer at­trac­tive in­te­grated so­lu­tions for the do­mes­tic mar­ket,” said Andy Postleth­waite, se­nior vice pres­i­dent, Per­for­mance Ma­te­ri­als Asia Pa­cific, BASF.

Polyurethane is used in a va­ri­ety of ap­pli­ca­tions such as trans­porta­tion and fur­ni­ture, as well as build­ing con­struc­tion and ap­pli­ances. It com­bines out­stand­ing in­su­la­tion prop­er­ties with light weight and great de­sign free­dom.
