One hour in a bus! That’s how long it took to travel around the BASF plant in Ludwigshafen.
The trip to the largest chemical companies in the world, BASF, is just a walk across the bridge from MBS. Covering the entire expanse of landscape across the Rhine from Mannheim, the facility is the largest chemical plant in the world. True to its name, BASF is a powerhouse in the chemical field with products in almost every industry known to man! Their international associations and open innovation techniques are a source of information to most companies that want to achieve a truly ‘global architecture’.
The information session opened our eyes to the history, changes in the industry and challenges that the chemical industry faces in light of recent developments. Additionally the in-house consulting team and the HR provided us with insights on the exciting work along with the opportunities at BASF.
The beautiful sight of first snow along with a pretty long game of snow-fight with the amazing 2013 cohort made the perfect ending to the eventful day!
1,78,000+ employees in over 100 locations with a turnover of 58 billion USD..Three numbers that constantly remind me about the size of the BASF world.
