BASF Expands Seneca, South Carolina, Chemical Production Plant
Located at 554 Engelhard Drive, the expansion is expected to be completed by mid-2022 and will increase BASF’s capacity to meet growing demand.
"As we expand our capacity to recycle and refine spent catalysts, BASF Corporation in Seneca is proud to further invest in South Carolina and in the Oconee area. We offer among the highest starting pay in the area, and we look forward to hiring new members to our BASF team,” BASF Corporation Site Director Elba Lizardi said.
The Oconee County site is a specialty chemical catalyst manufacturing operation. The company uses a refinery process to recycle spent catalysts and produce solutions that are used to manufacture herbicides, plastics, pharmaceuticals, auto-emission catalysts and fertilizers.
"The Palmetto State continues to build on its success in the manufacturing sector, and BASF Corporation’s decision to expand in our state will provide yet another boost. Today's announcement is further testament that South Carolina's business-friendly climate is perfect for businesses to succeed” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
