BASF Agricultural Solutions Canada will relocate its head office from Mississauga, Ontario to Calgary, Alberta effective October 1, 2019. The move follows the acquisition of a range of businesses and assets from Bayer in 2018.
“The strategic decision to move our headquarters west will amplify our ability to walk alongside Canadian farmers as they look to deliver sustainable agricultural solutions both today and, in the future,” said Jonathan Sweat, Vice President, Business Management for Agricultural Solutions in Canada. “With an evolved business model that combines our strong offerings in both seed and chemistry, BASF provides an integrated and solution-oriented portfolio to help our growers get the most out of every acre.”
The move includes a reorganization of several roles within BASF’s head office. The company will maintain its presence in both western and eastern Canada. The corn, soy, horticulture, and specialty products portfolio 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.
“We are committed to our role as a trusted business advisor for Canada’s farmers and look forward to this opportunity to get closer to our customers so that we can continue our successful relationship,” continued Sweat.
