LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY (Aug. 29, 12:45 p.m. ET) — BASF SE is developing its Ludwigshafen site in Germany with the addition of a center for work-life management and the modernization of office buildings.
BASF said it would also be creating room for a further 180 children at the LuKids day care center to help staff balance child care and work obligations.
In an Aug. 26 statement, BASF said its new center for work-life management would offer a social counseling service, as well as giving employees the opportunity to make nursing care arrangements for their relatives.
The German company also will be increasing capacity for some of its plastics materials. Those investment, which have previously been announced, include building a second production plant for Hexamoll DINCH plasticizers, and expanding its Styrodur C plant.
