Infrapark Baselland AG – the Swiss Answer to your Facility Questions in the Chemical Industry
Basel is one of the most dynamic economic regions in the world. In the Basel area you will find an enormous concentration of innovative companies, an open-minded culture, an international environment, business friendly conditions and quality of life that will fulfill the most stringent requirements.
Infrapark provides the chemical and life sciences industry with 33 hectares of outstanding developed real estate. Besides existing buildings which can be converted, around 5 hectares of free plots are available to interested companies. Customers of Infrapark as well as companies outside the chemical park benefit from a comprehensive range of services which allow them to concentrate on their core business activities.
The Infrapark site is ideal also from a logistics point of view: direct access to the Rhine river and to the Port “Auhafen” via a short rail connection (goods do not have to be transported on the road), situated close to one of the largest marshaling yards in Europe (Muttenz) and excellent access to the highway network.
Since recently Infrapark has developed a new kind of service model: Infrapark employees who are experienced and well trained in the field of chemical production and processes can run chemical operations for companies at our site in line with the standard operation procedures defined by the customers. This model is especially interesting for companies with a production output that shows a high fluctuation, e.g. pilot plants. On the other hand it allows Infrapark to have high employee efficiency due to deployment of production workers in various projects.
According to our customers, one of the decisive factors to settle their enterprise at the Infrapark site in Muttenz is the speed with which they can realize their business, be it the permit to start with the construction work of a production building or the permit to start manufacturing chemical products. Compared to other European locations the authorities show a pragmatic approach in dealing with special requests and are very familiar with the processes in the chemical industry. In addition, thanks to the well established connections of the Environment Health and Safety department of Infrapark, the early informal exchange of information with authorities enables companies to achieve target-oriented solutions.
The site, operating as a chemical park since the beginning of 2011 shows an impressive growth. In the past years the turnover with third party customers grew considerably and 200 additional jobs were created. During this period tenants invested approximately CHF 200 million in various projects to expand production capacities. To support this expansion, Infrapark spent more than CHF 10 millions per year in infrastructure like waste water pretreatment, energy and utility supply. 2016 important investments were made for security installations in our warehouses to be able to fulfill the requirements of getting the license for a bonded warehouse. The analytical department has ramped up its testing equipment to be able to serve even more efficient its customers in the field of trace analysis.
To date 19 companies are based at Infrapark. These companies are active in the field of the production and development of specialty chemicals, green chemicals, industrial, pharmaceutical and medical gas products, but also chemical logistics, lab automation and other services that support the manufacturing companies at site and are not part of Infrapark’s service offering.
