BASF Paisley

BASF’s plant in Paisley is about 60 years old, and was producing around 18,000 tonnes of pigments a few years ago. However it’s been downsizing, and will probably be closing completely soon. I’ve been visiting for a while – it’s still very much a live site so it took a bunch of trips to see most of the interesting buildings before they were demolished.

  3. Cracking pics I spent many a day/night in there as an apprentice mechanic fixing all the high pressure water jetting machines that acre had in there, went offshore and met matt donaghy”s son who is also a mechanic lol small world

  4. Great photos, particularly some of the ‘blue’ ones but the blue was the founding of BASF’s fortunes as analine dye (Badische Anilin und Soda Fabrik) which might explain it’s predominance.
