BASF and Apprion have finalized an initial $10 million purchase
agreement for multiple application projects to be implemented over the
next two years. These applications will enable BASF facilities to address their
industrial safety, security, compliance and performance
initiatives via Apprion's systems and services offering.
"We decided to pursue this extended relationship with
Apprion because of the proven success with various Apprion
implementations at our North American BASF facilities to date," said Chris
Witte, site manager for BASF's Freeport facility in
"In addition to reliable systems, Apprion's services team has
consistently exceeded expectations during the engineering and
implementation phases of our current and completed projects. Its ION Managed Services
offering was a key factor in our decision to extend our
agreement," he added.
Apprion, a leading provider of wireless application systems
and services, offers a full suite of industrial applications to
improve safety, security, compliance and performance at
industrial facilities. Core to Apprion's offering is the
ION System -- an open industrial wireless system that

The ION System includes ION services and Apprion's
full suite of ION industrial applications: mustering; video;
communications such as emergency notification; condition
monitoring; mobility for operations and turnarounds; personnel
tracking; access control; and many more.
The new contract also covers safety applications such as
mustering, personnel location and emergency notification and
future plans for monitoring and video at numerous BASF facilities in North America.
