BASF’s Coatings Division Supplies Coatings on Automotive Production Plant in Belarus

BASF’s Coatings Division Supplies Coatings on Automotive Production Plant in Belarus

With the opening of BELGEE’s new automotive production plant in Belarus on November 17/18, the cooperation between BASF and the Chinese-Belarusian joint venture has reached another milestone. At the plant near Minsk, Belarus, SUVs for the Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian and Kazakh market will be produced. BASF’s Coatings division supplies the respective coatings products for the car body as well as for the plastic parts. BASF is single supplier for all coatings layers – comprising e-coat, primer, basecoat and clearcoat. “We are proud that we won BELGEE as new customer for our comprehensive layer portfolio and that we can further strengthen our position on the Eastern European market”, explained Monika Pander, Account Manager New Business Development, Automotive OEM Coatings, at BASF.

BELGEE is one of the rising stars in the automotive industry. The joint venture was founded by Geely, one of the leading Chinese car producers, and Belarusian automotive manufacturer BELAZ. The cooperation is the result of an intense preparation. “In the end, we were able to convince BELGEE with the quality of our products and our technological know-how”, stated Ravil Bayazitov, Local Account Manager, Automotive OEM Coatings, BASF Wostok. “The successful international collaboration between all the teams from Germany, Russia and China was also a key to success”, emphasized Markus Staubermann, technical project manager.

With the opening of the production plant, BELGEE starts the line production at its Belarusian site which has a capacity of 60,000 car bodies a year – with optional expansion. Top-ranking politicians from Belarus and China joined the official opening ceremony.
