Base Materials continues to provide its high-performance materials currently supporting nine out of 10 F1 teams alongside many other programs including Formula E. As demand for products has increased so has the capacity to remain competitive and drive innovation, Base Materials' continues its investment commitment across its facilities putting operational efficiencies and product improvement at the forefront.

It’s where it all began for us over 18 years ago, and it continues to be one of the most innovative, fast-paced industries one we are proud to support. I believe the main reason for our success has been our commitment right from the start to work closely with our customers, understand their needs, and develop products with the right performance characteristics whilst maintaining a commercial advantage for our clients.
