The benefits of the proposed deal lie in different quarters. First, BASF benefits fromVigoCountyin two ways. It can make use of the relatively large and cheap land as well as the availability of local labor to establish a paint plant that could further bolster its manufacturing business.
The other one lies in the incineration plant which may be ideal for the place due to its large land and which would allow the company to process its waste easily, from other plants as well. However, BASF also faces the disadvantage of getting off to a bad start with the local community with which it needs to have continuing good relations for the long term.
The community benefits in part. Those members who can not avail economic opportunities inVigoCountywill welcome BASF as it may mean more jobs for them.
