Chemetall, a surface treatment supplier and global business unit of BASF’s Coatings division, expanded its Aluminum Competence Center in Hamm, Germany.

“After acquiring the anodizing business of Chemtall in 2015, this extension of the Competence Center and investment in ultra-modern technology further supports our global presence in this key industry,” says Martin Ings, global segment manager of Chemtall’s aluminum finishing segment. “The Hamm site is fully dedicated to research and development projects and plays a key role in the growth of Chemetall’s global Aluminum Finishing business.”

The Chemetall Aluminum Competence Center serves the architectural and construction industries.
