BASF Expands, DuPont Shrinks. Headquarters Say A Lot To Investors, Customers
THE WEAK IN REVIEW
Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buòn Giorno,
Readers, the largest chemical concern on the globe continues to get bigger and better, just as the the number 10 chemical conglomerate continues to get smaller and inferior.
On Friday, May 4, 2012, Germany-based BASF opened its new North American headquarters in New Jersey. The five-story building, which cost $130 million and houses 1,400 workers, was built using many of the company's energy-efficient products. BASF is proud to be in the business of producing and marketing chemicals and chemical-based innovations. Unlike the DuPont chemical conglomerate, BASF does not pretend to be a science-based bio-boutique or food industry powerhouse.
Reuters reports BASF decided to keep its headquarters in New Jersey because of the Garden State's skilled workforce, and the proximity to transportation and existing chemical infrastructure.
Headquarters say a lot about a corporation. In contrast to the modern 21st century North American headquarters of BASF, the world largest chemical company, DuPont's Senior Management are bunkered and hunkered down in a decrepit 105-year old building downtown in Wilmington, Delaware.
DuPont's comically called World Headquarters of Sustainable Excellence is the dreary grey, pigeon-stained DuPont Building only blocks from dangerous slums chock-full of the criminal element. Actually, DuPont with its long sordid history of law-breaking, criminal price-fixing, toxic chemical cover-ups, bribery, blatant SAFETY violations, Imprelis consumer fraud, and what-not, fits right into the neighbourhood!
You can tell a lot about a corporation from its headquarters.

Name theft and continuing harassment by the unprincipled trash in the DuPont Management camp, folks!
Any corporation whose avowed employees and Managers have to resort to a systematic campaign of sleazy vindictive personal attacks and stealing I.D.s to harass outside commentators and cover up is one sick corporation with intractable weaknesses. Such is the DuPont Company of the 21st century whose employees operating over the net confirm their inferiority to their superior-managed rivals with brazen misconduct and childish unprofessional behaviour:
