LOCATE/EXPAND IN MIDLAND COUNTY
In Midland, we're proud of our century-long history being world-class innovators and manufacturers in the chemical industry. Since the founding of The Dow Chemical Company here in 1897, Midland chemical and technology businesses have consistently worked to define the cutting edge.
Midland's technology "cluster," or group of related firms that interact to produce competitive advantage for all, is based on the presence of major employers in the chemical and technology industries: The Dow Chemical Company, Dow Corning Corporation, Hemlock Semiconductor, and many others. But the Midland cluster has also fostered emerging companies that have developed new technologies in key areas. These companies draw their strength not just from their individual achievements but from their interractions with one another.
In addition to our chemical and technology businesses, Midland's long-term sustainability depends on our economic base businesses in the healthcare, financial and industrial contracting fields.
It means that Midland has the workforce, industry knowledge and municipal government support to make your new or growing plant a success in the Midland area. We have the expertise to mitigate your scale-up risk and help you deliver more productivity in less time. It's what we do in Midland. We've been doing it for over 100 years.
