“The most important mega-trend of the past few years is the demand for sustainable construction: faster processes, higher durability, less energy use, and lower resource consumption in both the construction process and ongoing maintenance. As the leader in the Indian construction chemical industry and a responsible global supplier, BASF has consistently offered world-class quality products and services to help our customers meet these demands and become more successful,” said Prasad Chandran, Chairman, BASF Group in India and Head South Asia.

Our excellent performance in this field has made us a trustworthy supplier to most businesses.”
The launch events at Delhi and Bangalore were attended by approximately 300 representatives including government officials, leading consultants, contractors, ready-mix concrete suppliers and owners.
