The Michigan Operations manufacturing site was the original production site for the Dow Chemical Company. The site has changed a lot in the past 100-plus years – transitioning from a large volume manufacturing site to one that manufactures specialty products for the automotive, agricultural, paper, pharmaceutical and bioscience industries.
The Michigan Operations management team is in the process of implementing a multi-year strategic plan to expand the skills of our workforce; improve environmental, health, and safety and operational performance; and lower costs to keep the site globally competitive.
The Michigan Operations manufacturing site has more than 30 production plants, centralized research and development facilities and 550 buildings on 1,900 acres. It also has a world-class environmental management facility, including a fully licensed waste-water treatment plant, incinerator and hazardous waste landfill.
