VIDALIA, La. — BASF Corp. representatives joined local community leaders at the BASF Vidalia site to celebrate the completion of an expansion with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. The project increases production capacity of activated alumina adsorbents and consolidates regional manufacturing activities for activated alumina adsorbents into a single, world-class site.
“BASF is excited about the completion of this project and our continued growth and commitment in Louisiana,” said Mark Wolverton, site manager for BASF in Vidalia. “We appreciate the support of local and state leaders who continue to play key roles in helping our industry expand in this region, resulting in a stronger economy and community.”
The Vidalia site is part of BASF’s Catalysts division and manufactures activated alumina adsorbents that are used in a variety of chemical, petrochemical and oil and gas applications, including the purification of natural gas.
BASF employees at the Vidalia site support a number of nonprofit community service organizations through fundraising campaigns and volunteerism. The site was recognized earlier this year by Louisiana Economic Development with the 2013 Lantern Award for the company’s excellence in manufacturing and community involvement.
