BASF Canada agricultural head office moving to Calgary

Calgary, Allberta will be the new location of BASF Agricultural Solutions head office in Canada, effective Oct 1, 2019. The move from the company’s current location in Mississauga, Ontario follows the acquisition of a range of businesses and assets from Bayer in 2018.

 

The relocation includes a reorganization of several roles within BASF’s head office. The company will maintain its presence in both western and eastern Canada.

 

Corn, soy, horticulture, and specialty products portfolios will continue to be run from the east, while the canola, cereals and pulse business will be driven from the new western headquarters in Calgary. The company’s leadership team will continue to span the country, occupying key roles in Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and Mississauga.
