Dow Completes Specialty Polyols Capability Expansion

July 3, 2009

The Dow Chemical Co. (Dow) recently announced that it has further developed its specialty polyols manufacturing capability at the Company’s Freeport, Texas, plant to meet the demand for differentiated polyurethane products from customers in the automotive, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers, and furniture and bedding industries. Polyols manufactured at the Freeport site support demand for specialty products and systems in North America.
 
“Sustained market needs in specialty products have been a driving factor in this capability enhancement,” said Doug Warner, global director for Polyols at Dow Polyurethanes.  “We want to make sure our customers have a family of differentiated products they need to remain successful, even in today’s challenging conditions.  It’s good business sense for Dow, and part of our long-term commitment to be a reliable, responsive, solution-minded partner for our customers.”
 
The completion of the project, which coincides with the closing of Dow’s Sarnia, Ontario, polyols facility announced in August 2006, further strengthens Dow’s competitiveness in today’s challenging economic environment.
