BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions (BASF) recently unveiled its upgraded facility for producing crop protection products.
The $14 million upgrade was the largest investment the company has made in the Canadian market in a decade.
The Regina, Sask. facility will benefit from an upgraded laboratory, a new control room and increased capacity which will allow it to manufacture more of the products it sells to Canadian farmers in Canada. There were also upgrades to automation and digital monitoring systems.
“This significant investment highlights our ongoing commitment to innovation, ensuring we can continue to provide farmers with the solutions they need to succeed today, while setting ourselves up to produce, at our Regina site, the solutions they will need for continued success tomorrow,” said Jonathan Sweat, vice president, Business Management, BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions.
Sweat says the upgrades will allow the company to ship products quicker to retailers so that they can get them into the hands of farmers when needed.
