BASF celebrates 50 years of Cellasto

For 50 years now, under the ­Cellasto brand name, the company has been manufacturing and selling polyurethane finished parts and springs of all kinds that are employed in those areas where other materials such as rubber and steel reach their limits. According to BASF, today nine out of ten car makers use this product. Spring and damping components made of Cellasto are volume-compressible, durable and environmentally compa­tible, and absorb harshness, vibra­tions, and noise.From the beginning of series production in 1964, demand for this product increased steadily due to the growth of the automotive industry as the main customer. In the seventies, production was truly automated for the first time, while the eighties for Cellasto were marked by the development of new fields of application and markets, and the expansion of exports. This was followed by numerous innovations and further customer-oriented development into a partner to the automotive industry.
BASF operates six production locations for Cellasto worldwide in North and South America, Asia, and Europe. The most recent location in Shanghai started production this summer.
