Qualitatively deficient raw material delivery: Partial production and delivery suspension at FoamPartner

Zurich, October 11, 2017 – Conzzeta confirms that BASF’s deficient raw material deliveries also affect their FoamPartner business unit. In order to protect employees, customers and consumers from possible health risks, production and delivery was suspended at the Wolfhausen site on 6 October 2017. The reason for this is that BASF has supplied the plastic precursor product toluene diisocyanate (TDI) with an excessively high proportion of potentially harmful and polluting substances. The financial impact of these necessary measures cannot yet be estimated, but should be largely covered by the supplier or by existing insurance policies.
