BASF will move the manufacturing of its Offshore Subsea Insulation PUR Systems to Houston, TX, while Fisher Tank is opening a new fabrication facility in Leesville, SC, the companies have announced.

BASF

BASF’s move from Wyandotte, MI, will bring its Offshore Subsea Insulation PUR Systems operation closer to its Gulf Coast subsea insulation customers.

BASF

“Making a capital investment in the Gulf Coast customer base is a critical step toward implementing our strategy of sustainable customer success,” said Jim Lausch, Manufacturing Director for BASF Polyurethane Solutions.

BASF Polyurethane Systems and its products—Elastoshore, Elastopor and Elasturan—are used in a variety of applications for the offshore industry, including subsea thermal insulation, structural elastomers, pipe pigs and rigid foam.

BASF is a leading supplier of Polyurethane Solutions for systems, specialties and PU basic products. BASF Corp., based in Florham Park, NJ, is the North American affiliate of BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Fisher Tank

Fisher Tank Company’s new 86,000-square-foot fabrication facility in Leesville, SC., will increase the company’s fabrication capacity and allow it to offer in-shop blasting and painting services, which it formerly outsourced.

Fisher Tank

The facility includes plasma arc cutting tables, an automated overhead crane and track system, Gorbel work station cranes, a central weld fume collection exhaust system, an automated shot-blast system, and an environmentally controlled paint room.

Fisher Tank, founded in 1948, provides engineering and design, fabrication, construction, coating, and maintenance for a variety of welded steel vessels.

The company serves the industrial, petrochemical, chemical, military and waste treatment industries, among others.
