​​PASADENA - BASF Corp., the North American affiliate of Germany-based BASF SE, has sold a Houston-area manufacturing facility that it closed last year.

Trecora Chemicals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sugar Land-based Trecora Resources bought the plant in Pasadena.

BASF closed the facility late last year, affecting 40 jobs. 

Trecora said it will rehire some of the BASF operating personnel.

The facility produced wood and vegetable sterols, which are typically used in dietary supplements and as functional ingredients in food products to reduce cholesterol, according to BASF.

The 6.5-acre site is adjacent to Trecora’s 22-acre site and includes production equipment that is similar to Trecora’s, equipment that broadens Trecora’s capabilities and potential markets, substantial storage capacity, several rail- and truck-loading sites, and utility tie-ins to Trecora’s site.
