BASF Corporation Expands Its Oconee County, South Carolina, Manufacturing Campus

BASF Corporation, a leading supplier of environmental and process catalysts, will invest $60 million to expand its operations at 554 Engelhard Drive in Oconee County, South Carolina.

According to South Carolina Department of Commerce, plans for BASF Senaca include adding new equipment and machinery. Launched in 1987, BASF Seneca is a specialty chemical catalysts manufacturing and precious metals refining facility. The company’s refinery process produces solutions that are used to manufacture herbicides, plastics, pharmaceuticals, auto-emission catalysts and fertilizers.

“BASF is another fantastic example of a company that continues to show its commitment to South Carolina and our people. This $60 million investment is a reason to celebrate, not only for the company and the Seneca community, but for the entire state,” Governor Nikki Haley said.

“BASF’s global reach and cutting-edge innovation make it an international leader in the chemicals industry. We graciously welcome this substantial investment from one of our wonderful corporate citizens who has found success in Oconee for more than 25 years. This investment is further confirmation that Oconee County’s workers and business environment are world-class, and we will continue to invest in infrastructure and programs that businesses need to be successful in an ever-changing world,” Oconee County Council Chairman Paul Cain said.
