Two Upstate BASF sites honored
SENECA and CONVERSE, SC, Oct. 5, 2020 — BASF has been recognized with the 2020 Cummins COVID-19 Outstanding Supplier Award for its work and customer support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Indiana-based Cummins is a multinational corporation that designs, manufactures and distributes engines, filtration and power generation products.
The award recognizes suppliers who went above and beyond to support Cummins during COVID-19 response efforts. BASF received the award for delivering several products and services. One product is an important catalyst made with Zeolite that is produced in Seneca and is used by Cummins.
“We work hard to go above and beyond for our customers. This award demonstrates that BASF, despite the uncertainty created by COVID-19, is able to rise to the challenge and create the best possible customer experience,” said Elba Lizardi, Site Director at BASF in Seneca.
BASF’s sites in Seneca and Converse are two of six BASF sites in South Carolina. The Seneca site employs 400 employees and the Converse site employs 65 people. These sites are specialty chemical catalysts manufacturing and precious metal refining facilities. BASF customers use those products to produce a wide variety of products including pharmaceuticals, water treatment media for the removal of lead, arsenic and other impurities from drinking water, for fertilizers, herbicides, auto-emission catalysts, plastics, fragrances and more.
