BASF opens expanded Automotive Refinish Technology Distribution Centre at new location in Southeast Melbourne

BASF has relocated its Victorian Automotive Refinish Technology Distribution Centre to a larger, specially designed facility in Dandenong South. Strategically located in Victoria’s first integrated eco-industrial business park, the site also offers excellent access to Melbourne’s major arterials for improved logistics.

  • * Specially designed facility, which includes spray and tint rooms
    * Supports the growth of body shops around Victoria
    * Enhances access to BASF automotive refinish paints and dry goods

“Relocating the distribution centre to a larger facility enables us to further expand our distribution services, and provide the highest level of service to body shops in the region,” said Tony Wiggins, Head of Coatings BASF Australia and New Zealand. The new facility features a customized warehouse, a tint room and spray room for color matching and testing, along with a two-story office.

Over the last seven years, BASF has doubled its automotive coatings customer base in Australia resulting in a significant growth in local sales. The new warehouse helps to cater for this growth and features almost double the racking space to enable more stock to be held on hand.

The site will distribute brands including Glasurit®, NORBIN® and baslac® along with dry goods, to body shops around Victoria and the region. The new facility also features meeting and conference spaces to allow BASF to offer seminars, training, and updates on the latest technologies to Victorian body shops and spray paint specialists.
