BASF to sell its ultrafiltration membrane business to DuPont

Posted: Monday 14th October 2019

BASF and DuPont Safety & Construction (DuPont) have signed an agreement where BASF will sell its ultrafiltration membrane business to DuPont. The divesture includes the shares of inge GmbH, the business’ international sales force, its headquarters and production site in Greifenberg, Germany, and certain intellectual property currently owned by BASF SE. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed.

“The inge team has done a great job in developing the ultrafiltration membrane

technology into a well-established player in the market. However, synergies with

BASF are very limited,” said Anup Kothari, President, Performance Chemicals,

BASF. “For the ultrafiltration membrane business, becoming part of DuPont, a

strategic buyer, provides strong value creation potential and will enable it to reach

the next level of growth.”

“As a global leader in innovative water solutions, we are continually looking for

ways to help our customers solve water challenges around the world,” said Rose

Lee, President, DuPont Safety & Construction. “This technology in combination

with inge’s expert team further broadens our portfolio and enhances our ability to

design tailored, integrated solutions for drinking water, industrial and waste water

treatment applications globally.”

Pending approval by the relevant authorities, closing is anticipated by the end of

2019. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
