When two Dow Corning employees spun out proprietary antimicrobial technology, they had no idea where they'd end up - using their technology for everything from creating antimicrobial socks to vanquishing a black mold infestation at a million-square-foot hospital in Malaysia. Midland's deep knowledge of the chemical industry and what chemical business needs to function, as well as a unique manufacturing and distribution relationship with Dow Corning's worldwide facilities, helped make it happen.
Cabot, a manufacturer of fumed silica products, gets its raw material from Dow Corning Corporation. Previously they shipped it to their Illinois plant by rail; now, Cabot's Midland plant pumps its feedstocks directly over the fenceline from Dow Corning's Midland Site. After ten years in Midland, Cabot is using the Midland plant's fenceline operation as a model for all their future global facilities.
The Savant Group
The Savant Group, four separate but interconnected companies serving the automotive and lubricants industries, has no reason on paper to have started in Midland or to stay here. What changes the game are all the factors that aren't apparent at first glance: the expertise of our workforce, the deep industry knowledge in our community, and the pro-business attitude of our municipal government. It's a combination that CEO Ted Selby claims makes Midland a "diamond on the polishing wheel."
