With the increased capacity, we continue to ensure persistent supply capability in Asia Pacific with the highest standard of product quality,” said Vasilios Galanos, Senior Vice President, Intermediates Asia Pacific, BASF.

“2-EHA has been an integral part of BPC’s growth and it is timely that the expansion is planned to capture the growing market. The expansion is also in line with PCG's sustainable growth strategy to expand our portfolio with higher value products. By leveraging the existing integration between BPC and other PCG plants in the Kuantan Verbund site, we are able to maximise our value chain by improving the quality and cost competitiveness of our products and continue delivering innovative solutions to our customers,” said Datuk Sazali Hamzah, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, PCG.

“This expansion marks another milestone of the well-established partnership between BASF and PCG. It reinforces our commitment to expand local production to meet our growing customer demand competitively. Additionally, it caters to a rising trend on high quality products combined with production efficiency that is well integrated into the sustainability targets of our parent companies,” adds Marko Murtonen, Managing Director, BPC.
