Dow Chemical Selects Texas and Louisiana for Capacity Expansions

The Dow Chemical Company confirmed Aug. 29 the locations for expanding four of the Company’s leading brand franchises in Texas and Louisiana.

These actions, together with other investments in this region, are expected to generate approximately $2.5 billion in EBITDA once fully operational, enabling Dow to address growing customer and value chain demand in markets such as food packaging, transportation and infrastructure, hygiene and medical, and electrical and telecommunications markets globally.

Construction is scheduled to begin soon on these investments, which were initially announced in March 2013.

In Freeport, Texas, Dow will expand its High Melt Index AFFINITY brand polymer franchise. The company will also expand its ELITE polymer franchise.

In Plaquemine, La., Dow will expand its NORDEL metallocene EPDM franchise with next-generation technology.
