BASF’s official anniversary event with invited guests took place on April 23, 2015, in Germany. In Sri Lanka, the BASF Team celebrated with a 150 minute party.
On the occasion of turning 150 in 2015, BASF has announced its anniversary program. In addition to celebrations and a historical retrospective, BASF has prepared a global co-creation program with partners on the topics of energy, food and urban living. As part of this program, called Creator SpaceTM, BASF is taking a new approach in accordance with its “We create chemistry” strategy.
BASF’s history started in 1865 with dyes. Ammonia production followed a few years later in order to make fertilizer. Then, plastics came along. Since then the company’s portfolio has continuously developed and today it ranges from chemicals, plastics, performance products and crop protection to oil and gas.
