BASF expands partnership with Nissan

20 February 2013

BASF has expanded its partnership with Nissan, now also supplying the automaker with coatings and paints for the Pathfinder and Infiniti models at its Smyrna plant in Tennesee, USA. BASF supplies Nissan with coating solutions from e-coat and basecoat to clearcoat. The company is also working on more streamlined technologies with Nissan in emerging markets such as China.
"Innovative solutions and services, as well as our leading-edge technologies, have convinced Nissan to extend their collaboration with us in Smyrna now, too. Especially the 3 Wet waterborne coating technique, which is used in Smyrna but also for example in Huadu (China) played a major part,” explained Laurent Vaucenat, Global Account Manager for Nissan at BASF’s Coatings Division.
BASF also has long-standing supply relationships with Nissan in Japan and India. In 2012, Zhengzhou Nissan Auto Co, Ltd, honoured BASF with the ‘Excellent R&D Supplier Award’.
