BASF merges pesticide units
BASF is to consolidate its US specialty pesticide businesses and relocate them from St Louis, Missouri to Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The primary businesses known as Pest Control Solutions and Professional Turf and Ornamentals (T&O) and secondary businesses, including Professional Vegetation Management and Market Business Development, will be collectively known as BASF Specialty Products Department. “We are merging the businesses to stay ahead of the curve of the industries we serve,” Buberl said. The new structure is due to be in place by March 31.
