Shanghai, China – BASF has become the sole PU supplier to cold storage owner Zhenming. It will provide technical service and support under a new agreement, which was announced on 24 June.
This is the first time that BASF has worked directly with a cold store owner, according to Desmond Long, VP of business management for greater China at BASF. 'We have typically collaborated with various partners along the cold chain, such as panel producers, to develop PU sandwich panels.The new collaboration marks a significant milestone for BASF,' he said
'China's cold chain industry is developing rapidly,' said Zhenming’s CEO, Huang Zhenming. 'China's living standards are constantly improving, and food safety standards are also becoming stricter.'
He said that his company will use BASF Elastopir materials as the insulating core of the panels because they can be used to make structures which are energy efficient and safe.
