“BASF has been partnering with NCS for years and we are thrilled to assist in the opening and celebration of the new location,” said BASF NA Marketing & New Business Development Manager Dan Bihlmeyer. “This new location provides convenient, local service to our customers in this market and we are confident that NCS will provide a stellar customer experience for our existing and new customers in the area.”

The Ringbrothers will attend the grand opening in Neenah and are bringing their newly built 1969 Camaro G-Code that won the Chevrolet Design Award at the SEMA Show in November. The vehicle also took second place in Glasurit’s Best Paint competition at SEMA 2016.
