‘The establishment of the Eukesolar plant is part of BASF’s strategy to continually strengthen their commitment to the Indian market, which is one of our most important prospective markets’, said Thomas Sattler, who is responsible for the global leather business at BASF.Located in Mangalore, the new plant will leverage synergies with the leather powder dyes production that has been taking place at Mangalore for many years. Together with the new service centre in Thane, which was inaugurated one day earlier, the Eukesolar plant will provide the Indian leather industry with major benefits, including a broad portfolio of technical support, advisory services and short delivery times.‘This production facility in Mangalore will help us to maintain our leading position as the complete solution provider in the South Asian leather industry’, said Prasad Chandran, chairman, BASF Group in India and Head South Asia.Eukesolar E liquid spray dyes offer a broad variety of striking colours. The extreme brightness and intensity of these colours make them perfect for creating special fashionable effects on aniline, semi-aniline and nubuck leathers. Eukesolar E dyes afford excellent resistance to water-spotting and, like many other BASF leather products, they are NMP-free.
