BASF Freeport Donates Diapers to Brazosport Regional In Recognition of its 150th Global Anniversary
BASF's Freeport site is donating 150 diapers to the first 150 babies born this year at Brazosport Regional Health System to kick off BASF's 150th anniversary celebration. The Freeport site manufactures superabsorbent polymers used in diapers that provide high levels of absorption, permeability and absorbency.
"BASF has built its 150-year legacy on sustaining future generations," said Chris Witte, senior vice president of the BASF Freeport site. "We felt it would be a great way to reinforce our commitment to the future by serving the newest members of our community."
BASF’s official anniversary event will take place April 23 in Ludwigshafen, Germany, where BASF was founded. In addition to celebrations and historical perspectives planned locally, BASF has prepared a global co-creation program called Creator Space™ that focuses on the topics of energy, food and urban living.
